    Yes you can do CS i.e. company Secretery course. If you will do CS course with your MBA then you will get high administrative jobs in the abroad and India. There are three stages in the CS course. Foundation course, Executive course and Professional course and training. Since you are graduate and also have master's degree then you can get direct admission in the CS Executive course without passing the foundation course. The criteria for the Executive course is Pass in foundation course or Graduation with any stream. But you cannot get direct admission in the Professional course. You have to complete Executive course and pass in Executive course for getting admission in the Professional course.

    When you will pass the professional course i.e. Final course then you will go for the training from the Institute. You have to be careful about training because you must pass in the training. After passing in training you will then get the CS degree. After getting CS degree you will then go for the high administrative posts in the big companies. All the companies will contact you for job. You can do CS as the regular and distance learning both but I suggest you to do it from regular course. You should get admission in ICSI Institute. Best of luck.
