    I would suggest you to pursue diploma in Media and entertainment and work in the insdustry at the same time.means prt-time or distance education course. This will help you to experience whatever you will be studying practically in the industry. For example, you may be taught that buzz marketing suits this industry. Now is it really so? If so what are the advantages we(the company you would be working for) are getting? Sort of analysis. So it will be more practical learning.
    But if you want this degree to make a career switch, then you should go for full-time MBA.

    MBA can be done at any time later also, even when you are in job or even when you have a good career going on. I suggest at the moment you persue your earlier option.

    media being a creative field requires a lot of practical knowledge. So, it will be better for you to go for a PG Diploma and work simultaneously or another good option can be to gain some good work ex and then apply for Masters.
    All The Best!

    MBA is different line and I think you can further do MBA also but if this opportunity is with any good news channel or channel you should go for Diploma in Media and Entertainment and gain experience about the industry.

    Hey, instead of pursuing a diploma and working in the industry, you can go for a full time MBA from gems b school . They offer internships and placement in the industry which helps you gain practical knowledge as well.
