The toughest call made by a commerce student. It’s your career., you know your potential, your strength your interest There are different criteria on the basis of which one can opt best for them.
CA teach you how to manage the work Whereas MBA helps you to get the work done. CA has a proficiency in business field as for example CA can work as an Auditor, work in taxation & in management. And on the other hand MBA helps a candidate to develop a talent & knowledge required for building a career in management & business.

CA is a field which is deeply attached with the commerce & It takes at least 4years to complete your CA including all three set of exams – CPT, IPCC & the FINALS. But After completing CA it’s totally your call if you want to work in a organisation where you can work as an auditor and increase the company’s profitability or want to set up your own firm. And the best part is that you can pursue graduation along with the CA. So you don’t need to worry about the backup plan.And if we talk about the exams & the passing rate then 32.53% was the passing percentage of the year 2016.CA can do much more than just good with numbers & they can never be unemployed.
If you want to excel in business management then just go for MBA. There you can chose a specialised field of your interest and brush up your skills. And the INTERNSHIP PROGRAM which is the best part of MBA., it help you to apply the knowledge practically that you have gained in a two year program but before that you have to appeared for CAT (Common Aptitude Test) which includes Quantitative Aptitude,Verbal Ability,Logical & Analytical Reasoning and Data Interpretation and it’s also a test of time management.
CONCLUSION : After Pursing CA either you have to clear all three exams or you will left behind but MBA is little bit glamorous as it required cunning mindset & leadership qualities even when numbers are against you. MBA trained to be the birds eye view for the organization whereas CA are trained to view at the eye of the fish.
