It was just another rainy evening. Me with a few of my friends were sitting at a nearby coffe shop and sipping onto hot cappuccino with onion bhajiya (we’d got that from a nearby vada pao vendor), talking about life and how had it shaped up, as compared to our college days.
Though we all had a job, we were not satisfied (yes, I know it does not end at having just a job). Suddenly one of us suggested we apply for higher education without wasting much time. And the conversation shifted to which B-school is better than the other. What we realized later was that, nobody said we should go for MBA, yet what everyone had in mind was the same.

One of the most traditional and worthwhile career options after MBA, investment banking has been the topmost priority of the MBA genre.

If you love risks and utilizing your resouces to build something of your own, entrepreneurship is the thing for you. A trial and error method, entrepreneurship does not really require an MBA degree, however, the knowledge you gain during the study is of utmost help when you start something of your own.
You could also pursue a career in HR management or lectureship post the completion of your degree. A degree in MBA quite frequently leads to upper managerial positions in an organization. A new grad may not start out from that position, but certainly has the opportunity to move up the career ladder faster than their non-MBA counterparts.
