Ques. Should I opt for MCA or MBA in systems?
Ans. The classical dilemma faced by those among you who are interested in a career in software would be whether to go for an MCA or an MBA in systems.

This dilemma according to us should simply be converted into a question, which you should ask yourself, do I want a technical career path or a managerial one? The answer to this question would be the answer to your dilemma.

The MBA systems graduate would be actively involved in implementing the top and middle managements IT initiatives, he would translate the management's growth objectives into a plan for system requirements that need to be put in place in order to enable the above objectives .He would then pass on these requirements to the MCA who would implement the plan for system requirements.

Thus one can see that the career path for the MBA systems graduate is managerial while the career path of the MCA graduate is technical.
