So, if you are genuinely interested and also, ready to do research in the field that you are applying for, then you can opt for the MS degree.
- Next thing to decide is whether you wish to go for a technical field [insert link], a managerial field [insert link] or a combination of both, a techno-managerial field [insert link].
