    It totally depends on your interest and your goal.
    MBA will help you to grow as future manager while M.Tech will help you to get in a core company. One more thing go for M.Tech only if you get the top college.

    So I think both the courses mentioned above are equally good and have excellent future prospects.

One has to weigh his or her own capabilities, and more importantly , the interests and aptitudes.In the beginning, it is preferable to climb the ladder the hard way up, because then is the age and the ability to bear an immense strain and hardships of the job.Then only one can learn the basics of managing that job.Thereafter, a specialised course would definitely help in understanding the advanced techniques and strategies in the SAME field.
