    Re: Which course is better IAS or MBA? Can i do MBA before IAS?

    Dear Aspirant,

    First,I give to you peace of information about I.A.S and MBA .

    I.A S
    is an Indian Administrative Service.If you want to become a I.A.S Officer,You have to take a All India Civil Service Exam.

    MBA
    is Master of Business Administration.It is an 2 Years or 3 years course.Course duration depend on Institution.

    I.A.S

    If you want to do you great Civil Services,You should become a I.A.S Officer.We know that if we want to become a I.A.S Officer,You should take a Civil Service Exam.

    This Exam is conducted by Union Public Service Commission Once in a year.

    If you have interest in Social Services/Civil Services,You should become a I.A.S Officer.

    M.B.A

    M.B.A is Master of Business Administration,MBA Degree is more value when,You had from A+ Grade Institutions.

    In India,We have a several Entrance Exam for to admit in MBA Course.

    Those are as follows

    • CAT

    • MAT

    • SNAP

    • IIFT

    • FMS

    • I-CET

    • XAT etc..

    Can i do MBA before IAS?

    No doubt,You can do MBA Before IAS

    First,You should think your self,Why should i do MBA.MBA is Two years course Duration and If you want to take Civil Services ,You should spend another Two years.

    Now,You have to imagine your age after completion of your MBA.If you feel very happy you should go for MBA

    You should consider following points,When you take a right decision


    Age Limits for I.A.S

    A general Category Candidate should have attained minimum age is 21 years and not maximum age is 30 years as on 01/August Exam conducting year.

    For SC/ST candidates should have attained minimum age is 21 years and not maximum 35 years as on 01/08/Exam conducting year.
    For Back Ward category candidates should have attained minimum age is 21 years and not maximum 33 years as on 01/08/Exam Conducting year.

    Number of attempts:

    General Category Candidates 4 Times


    Backward Category Candidates 7 Times

    SC/ST candidates have no limits.

    Finally,My better suggestion for you that is first you should become a I.A.S officer.That is very better option for your bright future.

    Re: Which course is better IAS or MBA? Can i do MBA before IAS?

    Hello Shalini,nice to see your interest in top two courses which are highly preferred among the students.
    As far as two are concerned,I would like to detail each separetely.

    IAS :
    It stands for Indian Administrative Services.It is an administrative civil service of the Govt.of India.It is one of the three All India Services.
    The recruitment of IAS officers is done by a Civil Service Exam conducted by UPSC (Union Public Sefvice Commission).
    The role of the Civil Servant is as follows:
    To handle the daily affairs of the govt.
    Help in the implementation of policy
    Help in the policy formulation and decision -making etc.


    MBA:
    mba stands for masters of business administration.It is a post graduate degree course which helps the aspirants to get the managerial skills required to manage the business and work at job.
    It is a programme of 2 years and can be pursued only after having a graduation degree from a recognized university in any stream.

    Suggested programme:
    I suggest you to go with your interest ,But according to me ,IAS has no defined time period where as MBA has a specific duration of 2 years,So if you have no time boundaries,you can opt any of the above else go for MBA .

    You can go for both IAS as well as MBA. Don't be confused among choosing the one. And you can do IAS before MBA. Or else you can do MBA after IAS !!!

    I will give you the brief details of the both.

    IAS Stands for Indian Administrative Services

    And IAS is the toughest exam in India. And you have to qualify in the prelimis,mains and a final interview which is conducted by the UPSC every year.

    IF you get qualified in the above 3 stages , then you will get IAS cadre. And you should get the rank at least 70 or 60. Then only it's possible to get IAS or else you will get the remaining like IPS,IFS,IRS etc.

    You should have a degree with any percent to write the IAS exams and your age should be between 21 to 30years.Upper age limits are also there for SC/ST,OBC.

    Exam pattern for IAS is;
    There will be totally 9 papers in IAS for 2000 marks.
    And interview will be for 300 marks.
    Totally it carries 2300 marks.

    Important dates for IAS are ;

    Date of notification: 04-02-2012
    Last Date for Receipt of Applications: 05-03-2012
    Date of Exam: 20-05-2012

    Now, coming to MBA.

    MBA Stands for Master of Business Administration

    MBA is a 2year pg and which has to be done after degree with at least 55% aggregate.

    And you should write cat,mat etc exams to get admission in top mba colleges. And there are many streams in MBA like; Finance,marketing,hr,systems,IT etc.
    And there are no age limits for MBA. You can write MBA at any age of your life.

    Conclusion :

    >> If you want to earn more money then go for MBA
    >>IF you want to earn fame and name, and want to serve the people, then IAS is the only option

    Now, decide yourself.

    All the best

    Here are the some MBA exams which anybody gives after completing there graduation in any field as stream not matter in order to apply for the MBA course-
    MAT
    XAT
    CAT
    GMAT
    PMAT
    CMAT
    IGNOU
    SNAP
    And talking about the MBA scopes so its too large one has do MBA then he or she will surely get a good job in government field or private field with high salary...
    And now comes on the IAS-
    As I clear you that IAS is not a course you can’t do this but you can give this as this is exam for Government job...
    IAS Eligibility-
    Minimum qualification-
    Graduation with at least of 60% marks in any stream...
    AGE-
    For General category-21 to 30
    And there will be relaxation in the upper age for the SC/ST and OBC category candidates as per as govt rules.
    SC/ST-21 to 35

    So if your age is not completed 30 then you may apply for this exam…
