It reeks of arrogance especially since you are stating you are from an engineering background.

Maybe you care to logically explain why the highest paid fresh grads are from business schools ? Such companies must not have a lot of common sense right ?
As a double deg grad in Eng and biz, I would say biz is nothing but fluff. And I'm not sure what makes you think employers pay fresh grad based on course difficulty.

In short, as an average poly grad, you should continue with whatever path your Diploma put you on.

Asking about prospects after you are already taking diploma is a retarded move.

If you are any decent engineer, you will want to remain as one.

Typically, it is the cannot make it ones that want to change to business, with the mistaken impression that business is easier.

As an average poly guy, in engineering, you will work earn 3k++ upon graduation and increment 4% every year and no real hope of promotion or promotion also give you 4%.

In biz, you can be the Heng guy that gets an operations role in a bank and earn much more with higher increment, but also got no real hope of promotion.

Or more likely, u will be the suay guy on marketing made to plan events for Christmas Eve and other events, earn 2.4k and stuck there until you get promoted. But promotion will give you a big jump.

In short, getting a biz or eng degree is not a major factor in terms of prospects. It is the internships you do and how you navigate through the job market.
