Dr. Latha Krishnan, director, MBA department, PACE conducted an interactive career guidance session for engineering students. The main focus of the session was to provide engineering students a sense of direction in the field of management. During the session Dr. Latha Krishnan said that in todayâs economic scenario the competition is more forceful, nobody gives space to anybody whether it comes to education, career or jobs. For this reason everyone tries to upgrade their educational qualifications by various degrees to fit themselves in this professional market. An MBA after engineering expands your horizon and creates innumerable opportunities for an enhanced future. It has been borne out of experience that only skilled individuals can tackle the highly complicated and demanding nature of work that organizations undertake in this era of globalization and liberalization. Engineers have been known to be well-equipped with the inherent skill-set required for this transition. Raw engineering graduates need to possess a fine plethora of qualities such as communication skills, analytical and problem solving skills, decision making, conceptualizing, and interpersonal skills to become successful managers. She also added that as time goes by, it gets more and more difficult to land a secure position in the job market. It is more so for an engineer. An MBA degree on the other hand enables one to differentiate himself from the average crowd. Also, the job market today is inspired by individuals who possess abilities beyond the knowledge of their core subject and pursuing an MBA is the way forward. Engineers as managers perform very well in manufacturing and service industries. They have been seen to show interest in the defence forces and fields of content writing as well. MBA kindles the entrepreneurial skills of an individual which help him face the challenges of management with Ă©lan. Graduates of MBA engineering degrees have many career opportunities open to them. Adding the MBA degree with an engineering degree makes it more possible to utilize the engineering knowledge in almost any industry. Besides choosing the basic title of engineer, these graduates may also work in the capacity of engineering manager or industrial production manager, to name just a few. As of May 2017, the BLS reported that engineering managers earned an average annual wage of $124,870 while industrial production managers earned $89,190.
