What is the scope of doing MBA in HR - distance learning Doc Download

nairroshni Started The Discussion:

Hi everyone i am planning to do MBA in HR. But oflate i have heard that HR's are not paid well(many times they are paid as low as Rs 10000 p.m.) and that there is no career growth for an HR as such. Can anyone help me by clearing my doubts and does anyone have any idea about how much a fresher (MBA - HR) is likely to get paid?

Hi Roshini,
It's true that HR professionals are not paid well in the beginning of the career because the HR industry in India is still young and under evolution except in the IT industry where too much of attrition has brought in the need of HR practices.
Basically HR is a support process and not a revenue generation process and therefore most companies have a tendency to invest the least in it compared to other processes. Hence the low pay factor for HR professionals.
A fresher in the beginning in a corporate set up may earn upto Rs. 7500/- month. But in HR as the experience grows you earn more and more and the best part is you get to learn all the processes and strategies of the organisation. Through people relationships you gain more contacts inside and outside the company and in short start exercising more power and authority without a higher designation as you learn the process.
So if you want to go in for HR, the passion should be primary and the money factor secondary. A fast growth monetarily is not that easy.

Dear Roshini,

Research had clearly round the globe

time and again have proved that

money is not a motivator

well having said that money is required to survive and

that it is a means rather than not an end in itself for survival

however to be successful in HR

it requires one necessarily need to be

through-bread individual and multi-faceted

exposure /expertise at many a times will be required

if u can accept/expect such challenges and face them confidently

then it is going to be your favourite game...

and if not please do not enter into such experiments

all the best

Dear Roshni,
Good to hear that you are worry about your future. I am also pursuing MBA in HR and what I found among my batch mates that they have a limited knowledge about the said field and they quote "Finance and Marketing is not everyone cup of tea".
Do you know even most of the placement agencies and TP of my institute indirectly tells me to leave HR and opt some other specialization.

But I personally feels that they dont know so much about HR and due to thier perception they quote like this.

I would like to suggest you, dont think about the salary and placement. Just listen from the core of your heart whether you like this job or not as later on you will not get the job satisfaction. I have seen so many cases where students does Engineering, hotel management and other professional courses and jumps to MBA. Whenever I enquired with them they tells they joined engineering because thier parents want to see him as an Engineering.
And few of them joined, because their best friends were joining it. and few of them thinks that MBA will give them a guranteed job.
But they forget the truth that on the interview table college never gives interview it is the candidate or student who gives the interview.

So what I would like to suggest you dont think that what other do? Rather concern about your self and think what you want to do? Listen to your HEART and respect you job.
