    So basically, I'm in my last year of my Bachelors of Commerce program in India. I am giving my GMAT next week. I have two options:
    a) I have already got a job secured after I graduate. Should I work for 2 years(money is decent enough for a 21-year old) and then try for an MBA or a Masters?
    b) Apply for a masters directly after completion of my bachelors.
    Thanks.

      You've stated the benefits of working for a couple of years, but not the benefits of doing your masters straight away.

      I think you've answered your question already.

      Basically, I'd just have a bit of work ex and will be able to apply for an mba as well as a masters. on the other hand, if i go for my masters directly after my bachelors, i'll earn a lot more after masters at an earlier age.

      There is no guarantee you will earn a lot more at an earlier stage with a masters, no guarantee at all. Nevertheless, perhaps there is a third option: you take up the job but do a part-time masters at the same time; you would only have class for a few hours a week so I am sure your employer could accommodate this. There are lots of benefits to this, and only one or two negatives.

      That's not really an option for me at this stage. It's either a or b mentioned above
