The Staff Selection Commission conducts Combined Graduate Level Examination (SSC – CGL) for recruitment to different central civil posts, such as assistant, inspector, SI, divisional accountant, statistical officer, auditor, accountant, junior accountant, UDC, or tax assistant.
On the other hand, an MBA course aims to make students capable of handling all aspects of business situations. This means the course covers resources, marketing, accounting, operational management, and more.
Graduation from a recognized university is the minimum educational qualification required for the SSC CGL. The recruitment for these posts is done in departments of Central Secretariat Service / Central Vigilance Commission / Intelligence Bureau / Ministry of Railways / Ministry of External Affairs / Ministry of Defense / CBI and a few other ministries / departments / organisations of the central government. On the other hand, candidates who apply for an MBA course should have passed degree courses preferably in business administration or any other field of arts or science or commerce. They need at least 3 years of work experience.
There are many differences between the SSC CGI and the MBA. Firstly, the SSC CGl doesn’t need any investment, but the MBA does. The average MBA tuition can be between $50,000 per year and $80,000 for the full two years. However, the MBA has far greater credibility. An MBA will give you a higher average salary, better career opportunities, an overview of the business world relating to the global economy and better networking opportunities.
