Not to disappoint you but till now in my career I haven't seen a single case where someone having dual Degrees in HR would have created a extra niche place for themselves in the corporate world or would have been a cut above the rest in the HR Career, whether they hold a (national+ international degree ) or (national + national degree) or (international degree + international degree ). I just remember only one case who had done some HR course from Lancaster University (donít remember if it was a HR course) & was able to land in a good job (not great) in India.
But I am sure exceptions can be there.
What i have seen in Indian HR world that even having ONE FULL TIME DEGREE /DIPLOMA course in HR from any good institute is worthy enough to move forward. People do acquire additional diplomas/degree/certificates in HR to have some MORE VALUE ADDITION but as a trend that rarely helps them in getting a fast pace in their corporate growth.
Still a majority of the top Indian/MNC corporates operating in India head towards XL, TISS,SIBM,ISB,SCHMRD,XISS etc. when they want HR people & even at lateral hires they mark it as a strong preference to have people with those backgrounds.
On the same note if you plan to do the course in London & then try to find a job in HR in London & would like to spend time working there only then i guess it makes sense.
I am assuming when other members will start posting their views/knowledge then you might get more encouraging support & they might prove me wrong but till then you can have this as an input.

I strongly feel that a dual degree is of no value. However if your intention is to go to UK then , i feel you should try and do other specific short term courses to enhance your MBA -HR and by working there in HR, part time and 1 yrs full time after your course must add value.
You can also get exemptions on certain subjects as you have already done your MBA-HR. Have you got your visa? cos they will scrutinse this and the intetnion to go to UK, based on your interest for another HR Degree.
If you have any doubts mail me on
