    Hi I am unable to give you a direct answer to your question, since pursuing MBA at a particular time is subjective to each candidate. Rather, tell when is the right time to pursue, I will share my experience which might help you take a better decision. I am an MBA student who have taken up MBA after having a few years of experience. After my B.Com, I decided that I would like a few years of corporate experience before I continue my studies. I felt this will help me to decide my career path in a better and in many ways it did help me. Some advantages of pursuing MBA after a few years experience are as follows:- You will have a better picture o... view more

    The best time to do an MBA will be when you have at least 2 years of experience, so that you understand the industry domains and can utilize the experience to learn the new modules and concepts taught in class and hence in the next company you work for after an MBA. Also, many colleges give emphasis on work experience by giving extra weight-age or points to candidates with work experience (with around 2 years of work experience getting the maximum points). But practically speaking, there is no such best time to do an MBA, people have done MBA with 0 years of experience and even with 5-6 years of work experience in a 2 years course. So if you ... view more

    HiThe right time to go for MBA is when you pass your graduation. This is the right time if you are determined to get into MBA program. But if you are confident enough to give your 100% and crack the exams like CAT, XAT ; then you can prepare for your entrance exam for one year and get into top colleges like IIM etc.Some students first gain their experience from job and then go forstudying MBA. Hence the best time is when you complete your graduation and then pursue MBA. For MBA the minimum criteria is 50% in graduation. The more emphasis of marks is given to entrance exams. The good score in entrance exam will fetch you the top colleges in In... view more

    According to me, the best time is after getting two years experience in the industry. As you have already worked in the industry, it will be easy for you to understand the concepts taught in MBA and imagine their application in the real world.

    After doing graduation there are two options job and MBA, but the best option for that span of time will be the job. Complete 2 years of job and then join MBA and that will be the right time. When you start your career there are very less chances that you go directly in Management. Company wants you to start from beginning to understand the culture of business. After job when you do MBA while studying you can correlate everything with your past experience and also your job gives an edge during MBA studies. You will get the best exposure and things which you have learned in job you will get to know how I can do this better now. During placemen... view more

    With a few exceptions, your best time to get an MBA is not directly after college. These days, an MBA does not come with quite the same employment guarantee it once did even when you receive one from one of the top business schools. Hiring managers say they are only interested in MBA candidates with extensive professional experience. It makes no sense to get an MBA if you can’t get a job afterward.It’s also very difficult to get into the top business schools right out of college. Therefore, common wisdom puts forth the idea that it is important to wait a few years before applying for your MBA. There are several reasons for this:1. If you ... view more

    There is no right time to do MBA. It totally depends on you, if you are ready to do MBA after completing your graduation, it is okay in other case, if you do MBA after getting some work experience, then it gave you advantage that you already have practical knowledge, which is helpful for you.
