I am a student pursuing engineering in mechanical and want to go for M.S abroad ...but i am really confused on whether this degree is gonna help me much in the long run considering most of us end up in a managerial career...which makes me think on whether i should do my M.B.A....i would appreciate for your time as i am very confused on this..so please help me out...
Get the MS to get your foot in the door and get your employer to pay for an MBA. Eventually you will want to "prove your business knowledge" and the MBA will be the way to go if you want to progress beyond mid-level managment. Remember if you get to the VP level in the future you are compenting against Finance as well as Functional managers.

Go for the M S first, it is more portable. If you find a company you really like have them cover the MBA which should help you climb the ladder.
