I have completed my 12th with PCM and was exploring other options when I started getting interested in Business Studies. I have always had good scores in my class and have offers for Business Studies from universities like Trinity College Dublin(Scholarship), ANU(no Scholarship) and for Computer Science from University of Edinburgh, Leeds and Warwick. I will be appearing for my JEE Mains exam as well. I am confident that I can get into a good NIT in a respectable major but I’m not sure if I can make it into the IITs in a good stream. Now as far my interests go, I am NOT really insanely passionate about technical degrees and as of now I think I will enjoy Business more.( But it’s not about the interests, its about the output as well…Its about the payback to my parents who have made sacrifices more than i can imagine)
I don’t know which career path will be good for me. I know I’ll perform well in either for I know my biggest strength is hard work and ability to grasp quickly, not to brag but i think i am capable of achieving whatever I want if I set my heart on it. At the same time it can go horribly wrong if I end up disliking the course I am pursuing.
I know this sounds crazy and stupid but could you suggest what should I do given that I want to pursue MBA later on (from Harvard if I’m good enough) and maybe work for a consulting firm like McKinsey or be an entrepreneur.
It would really mean the world to me if you could give me an advice about the same.
