It depends on the individuals personal overall career goals and objectives. I will say the MBA leaves more wide spread opportunities. Thus, the skills acquired through the MBA are transferable to all most any field and industry, if indeed the individual wishes to have those options. Read the below as to why some individuals choose to pursue the MBA.

The following was written by Wharton College Pennsylvania. This should help.

Why an MBA

The MBA is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. What will you get out of an MBA? Aside from a powerful life experience, the MBA degree should supply three main value propositions: Skills, Networks, and Brand.


These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance, marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. Since MBA programs attract people from very diverse industries and cultures, a program should be able to leverage these differences and translate them into learning opportunities.


An MBA degree program offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business and community leaders. This network can be very useful when beginning a job search, developing a career path, building business relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise outside your current field. For example, entrepreneurs need access to capital, business partners, vendors, and clients. Arts-related businesses need access to funding and strategic management in order to position themselves to be relevant in the marketplace. Global businesses need access to local business cultures as they expand their enterprises to new territories.


The MBA degree is a recognized brand that signifies management and leadership training. The particular school and type of MBA program you attend also have brand associations that can help open doors based on the school's reputation. The strength of a school's brand is based on the program's history, its ability to provide students with technical skills and opportunities for personal growth, and the reach of its alumni and industry network. A powerful brand can give you the flexibility to make changes throughout your career.

You have graduated in zoology and want to do MBA what should you reply when asked why MBA after zoology?

The MBA degree was originally created because engineers working for companies were promoted to managerial positions, and often they did not know how to manage, although they were good engineers. Companies needed managers who could understand what the engineers were saying, and managers without engineering degrees often did not understand the engineers and their needs. Business schools responded by creating the MBA degree. It is a general degree designed to train student to enter any area of management. Now most MBA programs accept students with any undergraduate degree. You can respond by saying that organizations that employ zoologists need managers who are conversant with the terminology, work, and issues with which zoologists deal. They need zoologists who also understand accounting, finance, marketing, and other areas of business. By having both degrees you can make an important contributions to such organizations. To find the MBA program that best fits your background, criteria and preferences, a good source of information is the Official MBA Guide, a free public service from which you can go directly to a school's URL or contact schools by email.
