Question:

I am an electronics and communication engineer planning to pursue MBA. I am confused what subject to choose as my specialisation. Please tell me about the scope in HR, marketing, banking and insurance. Is operation management related to my field? I was interested in telecom. How should I proceed?

Answer:

Most B-school programmes are structured to introduce and familiarise you with concepts in general management in the first year — lay a foundation, if you will.You will cover subjects and topics ranging across management disciplines of marketing, HR, finance, IT, communication and operations, etc. It is in the your second year that you will choose your specialisation — partly based on your performance and partly your preference and interests in any of the above mentioned areas and proceed to acquire specialised knowledge and skills. Do not let your BTech degree/specialisation become an albatross round your neck. Consider all options with an open mind, explore them further and then decide.
