Though any graduate can pursue MBA, but practically the MBA advantage is more widely open to fresh graduates, Entrepreneurs and working professionals in both public and private sectors. It is a well accepted fact in the B-Schools that students should have some work experience before they pursue an MBA. However in the Indian context, even fresh graduates apply and get selected to the best B-Schools. Further, graduates from almost every conceivable discipline like arts, science, commerce, media, management, engineering, medicine can pursue an MBA degree. In fact, some of the top B-Schools have modified their post-test selection criteria in recent years to ensure that the short-listed students can come from diverse academic backgrounds.
