    Re: Is it a good option to do MBA while pursuing CA?

    Yes it is a good option to do MBA and CA together .But you must have enough time to manage both .

    It is advisable to join MBA in the initial years of CA only as after clearing the Gropu I of IPCC exam ,the candidates are required to join the training with some CA .

    SO they will not be allowed to do MBA together with their CA .

    If you want to join MBA,you should opt for MBA in Finance as this is related with your CA and you will not have any botheration in preparing for MBA as the syllabus is more or less same as done in CA.Rather only a few topics are covered in Accountancy compared to CA subjects.

    So if you have interest in CA and MBA both,you can go for it but what you need is TIME MANAGEMENT.

    All the best

    Dear Friend,

    You can do it MBA while persuing regular CA but it will be too hectic as there are hardly any time left while doing regular CA.

    In full time MBA there might be lot of assingments, project, exams etc.

    You should select any one among CA or MBA because there might be clashes/collision of exam of CA and MBA in future.

    Best of Luck!!!

    Hi friend,

    Studying different courses is always good because it may increase your knowledge level. But my suggestion for you is that you must concentrate in your CA itself. Because CA is a very tough programme. MBA is also tough. So if you are going for MBA along with your CA it will be much tough for you. If you are that much confident you can proceed with MBA(i suggest you Finance specialization).

    Hope that your dreams will come true. Best of luck.

    Regards,
    Eljoe Mathew.

    Hi, Yes it is a good to do MBA and CA together .But you must have a graduation degree to do MBA . If you want to join MBA,you should opt for MBA with your CA and you will have to manage yourself in prepare for both MBA and CA whether the syllabus is more or less.for MBA entrance exams like CAT, MAT, FMS, XAT you should have passed the graduation or the Bachelor degree with minimum 50% of the marks(45% for the SC/ST candidates) and from the recognized university.Hope this would help you to give a solution toyour problem.Best of luck.All the best

    HI,
    You check your weaknesses in you and make them as your strength. . . Don't lose hope. . . I felt that you can do it. . . CA is control on us. And strong desire is required. . . You must continue in ca, and be a country's proudable chartered accountant. . .
    good LUCK

    Hey,
    I am very confused right now. I dont know what to do :/
    Is it good to do B.com and CA side by side. And after I have finished B.com and CA, I want to even do an MBA. IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO SO.?
    If YES, then how much time will it take for the whole thing totally.? Please give me a time break-up for the courses and stuff.
    Please help me out as soon as possible. I am in a total dillema. I have no clue what to do :/
    I am going to finish my 12th std this March. and the CPT exam for CA is this June 17th.

    hey,
    what's the need of getting confused..
    I guess you are confused because you are trying to chew more than you can swallow. Take one thing at a time.
    If you work hard you can earn CA and B.Com in three years.
    You can not go for MBA before you have graduate degree. So After getting your graduation degree you can go for MBA. So path for you can be

    12th -> CPT -> BCom+CA -> MBA


    Think step by step.Avoid confusion.
    I hope this help you...

    Re: Is it a good option to do MBA while pursuing CA?

    Hello Dear ,

    Going for MBA and also pursuing CA course together is not good at all as at the end of the course you will be in no position , so it is advisable for you to do one course at one time . See friend CA course also offers a good opportunity after completion of course . So why to do MBA course then ? if you are getting a good jobs after CA only . So friend please study your course with a concentration so that you can avail an opportunity in a good company like in bank sector and in MNC companies .

    Top Companies/Verticals


    Following are the areas where CA's find an opportunity:


    Banks (Both private and public)


    Public Limited Companies (mandatory for the purpose of law)


    Auditing Firms (such as KPMG, Price Waterhouse, etc.)


    Finance Companies, Mutual Funds, Portfolio Management Companies, Investment Houses, Stock Broking Firms


    Legal firms, Legal houses, Patent Firms, attorneys, Trade Mark and Copyright Registers

    GOOD LUCK !

    • Yes, you can pursue the MBA while pursuing CA course.
    • However if you have applied forthe articleship in CA course then pursuing MBA course Is very difficult.
    • Because at the time of articleship ,you are not allowed to pursue MBA course in regular mode however it can be done in correspondence mode.
    • For MBA, you must have completed the graduation in any of the stream from the recognised university.
    • You are also required to apply for the MBA entrance examination such as CAT, MAT, SNAP, TANCET etc, you need to qualify in it.
