    Dear Shalini, don't be confuse because MCA and MBA are two totally different things. One you have to be very clear in you mind that where you have to go and what you wanna be, If you are opting for MCA then you will be a developer, and if you are opting MBA then you have to decide the stream that what you want to opt Marketing , Finance , Human resource or will be opting IT in business Management.
