It seems you are not happy working in the field of Mass Communication not only because of the remunerations but also because of the work that a media person has to do. You must introspect what you want from life. Do you want to continue in this field and get paid better? If yes, remember the Golden Rule: The first two years is the learning period and then comes the earning period. But if it is not only money that is troubling you in this field, it is never too late to search within and do what you want to. You can go for an MBA or any other unconventional field after thinking about your family, finances and inclination.

Chetan, you have not mentioned the standard in which you are studying. Coming to recession free careers in a developing nation like ours, engineering and medical will continue to be recession free. As a fact, we will need more doctors and engineers. These fields offer excellent financial security. Though there are a few other fields like healthcare, education, legal professions, food industry, environment sector etc. which are recession free. But at the end of the day, you must choose a profession in which you can excel and reach the zenith.
The professions you have mentioned are very highly paid, if you can reach the top of the pyramid. But in a nation like ours they are still in the primary stages. A great struggle welcomes you if you want to be one of those big names in these fields. But passion is the panacea that can defeat this struggle. It is advisable that one should not leave his day job or conventional education for these fields but they can go in hand in hand with your conventional professional life. But I would say it again, these are upcoming fields in India and they offer great remunerations. So, you can gear up for them. Until they start giving you your daily bread and butter, don’t leave the conventional field.

You are cent percent correct to say your field offers infinite opportunities but I would suggest you should first try to raise the bar by taking a higher degree. It is also equally true going for a job or a higher degree depends on many factors as your finances, your inclination etc. Take a call and form a conviction and always keep in mind that convictions once formed should be kept in utmost of difficulties. It goes without saying if you complete your Ph.D., a whole new world of opportunities will open for you. You can be a highly paid lecturer in a college or be a researcher in a good company.
Karthik, you have not mentioned the type of course which you want to pursue(or the stream you are in) but assuming you go abroad for a professional course, you will have excellent job opportunities in both India and abroad, once you complete the course.

If you can score high in GMAT or GRE and get a good scholarship, you can practically get 100% scholarship. So all the best!

It is wise to weigh all options thoroughly before finalizing a College for pursuing M.B.A. Though there are many good private M.B.A. Colleges in India, I would request you to take the final call after deliberating on few factors.

Ensure that the College fee is not beyond your means. It would be great if the College provides training on Soft Skills and Professional

Electrical and Mechanical Engineers were dependent on Manual work. And there was this common belief that males should be given preference in jobs of physical hard work. But, now in this era of Information Technology, most of the work is done through Machines. Caliber is the prime requisite and not physical strength. That is why, women are great Engineers and Technocrats these days. Though, lack of pr
