Hi all… i am an engineering graduate.. i have an IT industry experience of about 2 years. I was not satisfied with my job and then decided to opt for MBA. I want to pursue a relaxed job like teaching rather than any hectic jobs offered in the corporate world.
Pls tell me what are the job prospects of taking up teaching after MBA. What is the procedure of getting into teaching after my post graduation , i.e., is there ant entrance exam fr it? which is it? whn can i apply fr it? And what MBA subjects are in demand?????
I would appreciate if u guys have any experience to share with me 🙂
Thanks in advance…………………………
Briefly, yes and no. The MBA is not a teaching degree. For university level teaching you need the Ph.D. That is not to say that some of the lower level colleges will not hire you, but these positions are usually not tenure track. Some schools will hire MBAs with professional certifications, such as MBA with CPA or MBA with CFA, mainly because they don’t pay enough to get the Ph.Ds they should have.
On the other hand, MBAs get teaching positions at community or junior colleges, two-year schools that grant the AA degree. If that interests you, you cold give it a try. But there is a misconception: A relaxed profession? Ha ha. There are all sorts of pressures in teaching. I’ve done it for 40 years, and if you are not willing to work hard and be dedicated to your students, you won’t last.
Finally, teaching in primary and secondary schools typically requires state teaching certifications, which i suppose you can get, but that can be even more stressful with the discipline problems that exist with those kids. I hope this helps you to make the decision. As for finding the appropriate MBA program, this is what I tell people who ask:
Explore the Internet for information on available programs. There is a lot of information available in free public service sites. Some sites are limited to specific countries, such as Germany, UK, or Australia. Some list a small number of select schools, while others may include more than 2,000 MBA programs listed worldwide. You can find the program that best fits you. You can search for programs by location (US, Europe, Far East, etc.), by concentration (finance, marketing, aviation management, health management, accounting, etc.), by type of program (full-time, distance learning, part-time, executive, and accelerated), and by type of degree (MBA, MS, Ph.D). In some cases you can select your own criteria and preferences to get a list of universities that satisfy your needs.

Well, I would say the biomedical area would pay more than print journalism. I think journalism is a lot better, particularly because I love it. I am not the science and math person, and more of the English and Social Studies buff. I love to write, and is another passion of mine. The others may say that newspapers are starting to lay off journalists, but why do you think? It is the economy, and not journalism itself. So, for me journalism is better. This is only because it’s my passion, and not because of anything else. I would go into the field you like better, and even if you don’t know, you will some day. I would go with what your heart tells you. If your hearts says none of them, than go into something else even if you may graduate late. Though, my father went into like three schools and switched majors a lot, and never graduated. So, I wouldn’t change it after this. You could just work in one of the fields, and if you don’t like it I would go back and get an MA. Good Luck!
