Do professional degrees help after the CAT exam?

Every candidate hopes that an MBA from an esteemed institution will be a differentiating degree to get a well-qualified job. Since the job market is becoming competitive and demanding high-skilled workers with high career expectations by the day, a professional degree like CA or CFA adds value to the CV. It opens up several opportunities with the right combination of skills. Moreover, professional degrees are restricted to their domain and lack diversification in job roles. One might want to switch jobs or look for a higher qualification and hence pair these degrees with the exam. It also helps the candidate in getting clarity about the specialization that they want to pursue during their MBA and the sector they want to work in after completing the same. From a personal growth perspective, an MBA which emphasizes peer-to-peer learning helps these professional students contribute meaningfully in class discussions and group projects.
