Hi Nihal, as you are a graduate in IT you may opt for MBA in systems which would be really helpful if you are planning to enter into managerial roles. MBA in systems will enable you to move into managerial roles with ease if you are doing it in regular degree. However if you are passionate about coding, testing and other technical jobs, you may have to go for M.Sc in IT which will be more relevant. Moving to managerial role with MBA in system is really a good option if you are keen on shifting. There are several competitive exams to attempt in order to get into premier institutes for MBA. Some of the top exams in India are CAT, MAT, XLRI which are highly competitive and are accepted by almost all the premier institutes across India. MAT happens once in a quarter, CAT and XLRI happens once in a year. You will have to check with the application dates and schedule from the respective sites online. All the best for your career.

MBA in systems can be a good option for the IT and computer science graduate. In case of systems MBA, you may benefit from the syllabus. You may need to pass the entrance exam for the same. You also need to make sure you either complete the national entrance exam or the university specific exam. This a good course with some future potential. I suggest you to read as much as it can before appearing for entrance. Make sure you also know the job opportunities and how to proceed.
