MBA HR

You could join as a HR in any industries/ companies, opportunities everywhere.

You could choose to join as a executive in any of the job placement consultancies. To know how to become a HR executive in job consultancies, read my post here.

If you see the opportunities listed for both the major, you seem to find more choices listed for MBA Finance.  But, opportunities are equal for both the major, as I have not listed the name of all the companies across all sectors for HR specialisation. It is not practically possible to list them all here. It is understandable that any startups or SMEs or any major corporate would require MBA in HR to run Human Resource department.

Securing a job in any functional area would be easy if you are strong in your academics as a fresher..
