    Hello,

    Its good to hear that you are dedicated and committed to pursue higher studies. MBA after mechanical engineering will be a good option as you will have the technical base to support the building of a professional degree. This is going to benefit you a lot.

    There are many students who prepare for MBA in their final bachelor's degree, so you have a golden opportunity to utilize your current year to complete your education and prepare for CAT at same time instead of sitting at home for 1 year. But first check that you have 50% in your graduation till today as a basic criteria for CAT.

    As far as the preparation is concerned. There are various ways-

    1) Take the coaching from institutes like TIME, Career Launcher,etc. Who provide CAT coaching for final year students also.

    2) Start preparing from the books. There are various books available in the market such as all books of Arun sharma for CAT are very good.

    3) Take the help of online websites for CAT preparation such as cat India online etc

    So start preparing you have enough time and this time IIM has changed pattern for exam. so study according to it only. However if you will take coaching they will tell you everything and give you adequate notes. But for your information There are now two sections in CAT

    Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation
    Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning


    Thank you

    Re: How to prepare for MBA while in final year mechanical engineering?

    Dear Aspirant,

    I have not understood one thing of you, once you are doing Engineering in Mechanical Stream, then why at all you want
    do MBA immediately after completion of your engineering course.

    It is always advised to gain at least 2 years of experience after completion of any professional courses like Engineering/MBA etc
    for gaining practical knowledge or on the job training/experience. That would give you the real base for building your career.

    Whatsoever, it's all your choice of interest.!!!

    Secondly, as you have not expressed regarding to join which type of college for MBA course, like first you will have
    get qualified either in CET conducted within a State, or CAT conducted on all India basis or a GMAT or MAT-AIMA
    exam whichever is suitable for you, can choose.

    Apart from that each B-School is also conducting its own selection test indigenously formulated by them to select a candidate
    for giving admission to MBA Course. They are:-

    ISB, ICFAI, NMiM, XLRI, ETGS, IBS, NITs etc etc. So first a place where you want to do MBA course then take options of B-Schools
    suiting to your financial budget and check their selection criteria/procedure for MBA course with your qualifications accordingly. OK.

    If you have good communication/interpersonal skills then you can lead in the short listed candidates as well as in the MBA course.

    Best of Luck..

    Re: How to prepare for MBA while in final year mechanical engineering?

    hey,

    you are in final year of engineering so one thing is that you can self study and i can provide you with some sites from where you can see the syllabus and previous year papers and prepare totally by yourself.But i know that nobody wants to study at the time of engineering by itself so the best way for you is to join a coaching institute .they will guide you about everything.

    there are many coaching institutes that provides coaching for MBA

    I m highlighting some of the very good institutes....

    1.times

    2. carrier launcher

    3.ims

    you can join them.

    dear friend,

    I think to crack MBA you must do all the work strategically like you must know what are your weak points and what are your strong points.
    like for example you know that you ae good in maths part but your english mainly vocabulary is not up the mark then you must stress on your vocublary because it is your weak point.you must give more time to english as compared to maths.


    also you can join a coaching institute there are many good coaching institutes who will guide you about everything.

    list of some of the top institutes providing coaching for MBA

    1.IMS

    2.CARRIER LAUNCHER

    3.TIMES

    now there are many sites from where you can get a lot of information about MBA papers and everything.

    i m forwarding you the link of these sites.

    Re: How to prepare for MBA while in final year mechanical engineering?

    hi,

    i think its one good decision to do MBA. In INDIA, B.Tech plus MBA Is the highest degree.most of the interviewers will give preference to you.


    but my sincere suggestion to you is, better to do atleast 2 years in any one of the core company. MBA mainly useful people who are having experience, it will give added advantage to you.


    thank you contacting us.....

    Re: How to prepare for MBA while in final year mechanical engineering?

    I won't say that it is a good decision to go for MBA course soon after the completion of your B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering. If you are having good subject knowledge and if you look for opportunities on the basis of your B.Tech, definitely you can get a good job.

    My suggestion is to give first preference in joining job on the basis of your B.Tech and if you are placed in any organization by the time you complete your B.Tech, then better to join rather than going for MBA course.

    The reason why I am saying like this is, in order to get good job in reputed organizations, one should have completed MBA course in B-Schools or IIMs. Almost all top companies will hire MBA candidates from IIMs and B-Schools rather than going to hire MBA candidates from general institutions.

    To be placed in these IIMs and top B-Schools, one should have to secure high percentile in CAT Exam. Hence for this, you need to have strong preparation for CAT Exam.

    Ultimately it is your choice whether to join MBA course or to join in job. There are state level and national wide entrance exams for MBA course. Choose the one which ever you are interested.

    If you are really interested to join MBA course, then take coaching for CAT Exam and have enough preparation prior to the exam and crack the exam.

    Just doing MBA for the sake of certificate will not fetch you anything. You should strong enough in following areas
    -Business trends
    -Soft skills
    -Subject knowledge

    Then only you can survive in this competitive world and can take lead over the others.

    Re: How to prepare for MBA while in final year mechanical engineering?

    Hi!! Friend

    You are in 4th year Mechanical Engineering. Still, you are not late, you can start your preparation for CAT right now.
    I assume that you must be giving CAT next year.

    you have enough time of one year.
    Now, First of all, you need to clear your basics in English and Maths.

    For that,
    -You start reading English Newspaper and magazines to improve your English
    -Read "Word Power made easy to improve your Vocabulary
    -Clear your Maths basics of 8th, 9th and 10th C.B.S.E maths.

    Complete this within 2-3 Months and then start for Real Battle

    Then go for the CAT Material to solve the question from various sections.
    Please Refer Arun Sharma for Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation..

    Read some Imp Novels :

    - The world is Flat
    - Undercover Economist
    - Free Lunch

    Done with this . .
    Solve previous CAT Papers

    Best Luck
    Regards,

    Those students who are in final year of their graduation or who has completed their graduation are eligible to apply for the MBA program. The major entrance exams of MBA are CAT & MAT. You cannot do preparation in one day so you have to start your preparation before one year only then you can do well in the exam. You can do preparation for the aptitude test, English, GD and interview.
