Fuzzy’s Answer

As MS is more technical in nature, it is good for doing further research by PhD or to work in technical positions in your job. It can be like Database Architect, Marketing Research Director, Advance Tax & valuation expert, etc. It will give you edge in the technical area you are working or research. Many people who wish to become professors one day, choose this path so that they can go to PhD and then become a professor some day. Some just take because they love the subject and want to know the details to an advanced level.


MBA as it says, it is “Master of Business Administration”, clearly we can see it is an Administration or Management degree by name. It is no way technical in nature. You are not trying to explore the depth of a particular subject; you are trying to learn various aspects of a business and learn management skills to administer company’s or organization’s resources and people effectively. Typically, 2/3rd of the classes will be fundamental courses of Business and administration like Accounting, Corporate Finance , Organization behavior, IT for Managers, Marketing Strategy, Economics, Operations strategy, Leadership and Negotiation, etc. Rest of the 1/3rd of the classes with be electives and you have the choice. You can pick Marketing, Finance, HR, etc based on your choice or your current industry. When someone says, I got MBA in Marketing, it means that they only did this 1/3rd of the classes related to Marketing. But, when someone says, I have MS in Marketing, it means they had around 80 – 100% of their classes in Marketing ONLY. You see the difference ? Based on university it changes, but generally you can do your own set of classes that you like for the 1/3rd of classes in MBA with variety of mix, then you will not have a degree in specialization. It will be called General Degree in MBA.

Ruchira’s Answer

Both will give you plenty of opportunities and open doors. I would definitely encourage you to think, if there is any likelihood for you to pursue MBA after MS, then apply for MBA directly. Lots of folks end up getting an MS in US and then feel that they need to pursue MBA for upward ability. In my experience there is little advantage for getting an MS and an MBA.

Marie-France’s Answer

I have both of these degrees, an MS and the MBA. You have not specified what type of MS degree. In this case, it depends. Both will open doors. The MBA is worldwide recognized, but that does not mean the MS isn't as well - again, you have not specifed which one.

MBA will give you more opportunities in general everywhere since it is more comprehensive in nature. An MS degree is more technical in nature and more specialized to a particular area of business.

Aswin’s Answer

Both are degrees that is to a large extent recognised worldwide. Your specialization though will have a huge bearing. An MS related to Automotive could be useful in countries where you have the corresponding job opportunity. Choose what you are passionate about. MBA opens you up to a business mindset. MS allows you to get an indepth knowledge in a particular field. Opportunities across the world lie for both the degrees.

Manish’s Answer

While both degrees have good opportunities, if you have interest n the field and graduate from a top university. Many MBA grads get a better package than MS grad, but on average MBAs have more work-ex than MS.
