Yes Gaurav, you can always apply for an MBA or Masters abroad after completing B.Tech. First, you need to specify your field of interest and then choose a course accordingly, within or outside USA. You would also need to identify which university accepts B.Tech graduates without work experience. Ha

Hi Atul, basic MBA requirements include having 2-3 years of professional experience, GMAT or GRE scores, IELTS or TOEFL scores in addition to having a good academic percentile. Without work experience admission chances are slim unless you have an extraordinary profile. If you are seeking a good MBA
