MBA vs MCA: What is Better after BCA

Admin | February 25, 2022


An MBA (Masters of business administration) program is a postgraduate degree program that specializes in Business management studies through various practical and theoretical understanding. AN MCA program (Masters of Computer Applications) is a postgraduate program that focuses on application development programs and helps you pick up the latest computer programming skills. MBA and MCA are two different management streams of education. An MBA helps you to gain the skills to manage any business, while an MCA degree helps you climb the ladder in the IT and communications sector. 


MBA and MCA degrees can never be compared as they are two different streams of study. You can pursue an MBA after any basic undergraduate program. Similarly, an MCA can be pursued after any basic UG program. While MCA opens up venues for recent developments in IT technologies. An MCA graduate has a chance to get a starting package of 4 lakhs/annum in top-tier companies like Wipro, IBM, TCS and a few. MBA course gives you a chance to get into management level roles in any field like IT, food industry, entertainment to name a few. 

To put in simple terms, if you are a people persona and interested in leadership roles, you can take up an MBA to pursue a career in management. If you are more inclined towards software development and learning new technologies and computer languages, an MCA degree will be helpful.
