To make things clearer, it will cost you 30+18.5+18.5=67 lakhs minimum. Hope you can understand the calculations.

My friend got internship of 1.2 lakh / month which basically is equivalent to job salary 😅

I would say it depends on your interest.
If you know your career path and growth prospects after you completing MBA, you should go for it (and better sooner as you have just 3 years of experience).
If you don’t have the clarity, either figure it out first or continue in tech.
It’s mostly should be your passion thats driving you towards MBA.

Try preparing for 1 year. If you are confused you should rather not do MBA because with job it will be a tough journey preparing alongside and you will need constant motivation which you could get only if you truly want to do an MBA.

IMO if you have good people skills then think of planning for an MBA. You could find a course which would be something like IT Management, if you don't want to leave your software roots.

Think think long term..career span is 30 years. Now there is supply demand mismatch so there is high pay....soon its about to change once companies start bleeding red coz of low margins and less business.. it will soon get difficult to switch if you don't bring enough to the table which you can probably bring with an mba..

The business is less due to war effects and high inflation in west resulting high interest rates but once war is over companies will definitely resume its normal pace and their will be again run like after covid ,we are seeing new business coming up more entrepreneurs our Era is phase of transition and we should not be surprised to see the development once situation settels. I would like to believe that SE do get paid like now even if I might pursue MBA because honestly their work n learn together and its only on paper 9hr job they really were underpaid before covid. Less demand is risk in all sector infact more on management as they fail to bring business

Not entirely true. Couple of things - there is no end in sight for the war, 2nd companies are bleeding because of margins, even if we go back to pre covid period, customers may not increase the billing rates. I think it will take few years before business stabilises, till then tech talent can make lot of money taking the advantage of demand Vs Supply. But keeping this aside, pursue MBA, will help you in the long run & could help you become an entrepreneur one day

Very good decision. Go ahead.

I'd suggest you to go ahead... Even though current cost is high, you'll be able to get a definitely higher package and prestige along with it.
All the very best for your future.
