anishgulati SaysSir, that is what I wanted to know what are your personal views MBA(IT) or MBA(gen) considering your experience in industry since even in IT who have guys from MBA(gen).
Anish problem with MBA from an IT centric specialization is that, by chance if during placement economy situation goes for a toss, then IT is one segment which suffers first.
In 2009 everything went haywire for our batch because of recession, Everyone freezed hiring, and even if they were hiring it was too less in number like when TCS came they hired only 4 people similarly with other companies which previously used to hire some good chunk of people.
Point is at times it's bit risky to be based completley on IT, HOWEVER
that's one part of story, another important thing is that what excites you? I don't feel like going for mktg or sales based MBA (although it throws open numerous oppertunity for me) because I wanted to go ahead in IT itself something related to consulting.
So, if everything is perfectly fine then there is no dearth of quality oppertunity in IT after MBA from SCIT. However if economy situation goes a bit down things become slightly tougher (but thats the challenge of life
What more to say, this comparison/analysis is endless, at one point of time one has to conclude something or other based on his/her gut feeling+risk taking capacity+personal interest. Rest is your hard work combined with a bit of destiny ;). It does matter to be at right place at right time.
