Didn't you get time to think about this before you finished your MBA ?
1) The entry level salary opportunity would be higher in Finance. For example Investment Banks pay the highest packages across all domains.
2) Scope wise, you really cannot compare, they are an equally important part of any company.
3) You should be choosing based on your interest and aptitude.

As an HR your entry level salary could be comparatively lower.
But as you said that your primary interest is in HR I suggest you go with HR. Because as you grow in the HR department your salary will also go up. Roles like OD specialists get paid handsome packages.

being a person having specialization in HR as well as Finance u were supposed to have a know how of both these areas.. In my opinion people having HR as their specialization can be good in dealing with humans salarywise they dont have much scope in the begining but in the longer run they tend to have the power to negotiaite depending on their expertise.
Finance people have the advantage of having the knowledge of financial elements plus with their people skills they can b as good as HRs in a company.(Many senior officers having technical education have been seen doing this)
they sure have the advantage of better salaries right from the beginning of their careers.
coming to ur question of who can become a CEO-- Anyone who has learnt how to utilize his/her experience in the organization effectively in the long run can win the race.

i think HR Person gets higher salary and also the HR people knows well how to lead the team or Organization, so there is chances more that an HR person becomes a CEO.

Im a student of MBA, and seems Im also following the sam path as the guy who started this topic.
Currently Im doing my MBA in Finance, and after finishing it, I'll do another MBA in HR.
The reason of entering into HR is not that Im weak in finance (as the most of the ppl do). My finance is good, but I think that the level of interest I've got in HR, no one else can have!
I beleive both the subjects r very essential in running any organization. To me, HR is more a LINE FUNCTION,than a SUPPORT FUNCTION.
Finance is about running ur company, and HR is about getting the most out of ur partners, peers and subordinates.
I think one should enter into Finance department, and have a good involvement in HR dept too!

Hi dear
It was shocking when i read this from you.
Remember one thing Big organizations will never select there CEO based on the candidates qualification are the experience.
The basic thing they see before the selection of an CEO is the attitude and Person as a human being and this is seen specially in the organizations like TATA
So what i would tell you is try and identify your strengths and go in to related fled were you can excel in that particular role. which leads to your desired CEO position.
As some one said Finance people become CEOs i would add that most of the CEOs failed in carrier are from MBA finance.
Hope this could be of some use to you.

HR or Finance, both are having thair own values and importance.
In my view, HR is d best choice.
But, here let me clear that, the choice is entirely depends on you. You have to evaluate your self and chose a field on your interest where u feels that you are the best, u will contribute grow well and can generate good yield.

I first would like to know which is your priority " salary or Job satisfaction?".If you are looking at gud salary it will help for very short time.But if you select the field of your interest then your job will become a passion to you and automatically all your dreams come in your way "salary & CEO". Now it is you to make a decision between finance or HR according to your interest.

In any organiisation-Human Resources as well as the Finance department are supporting ones and not like Operation department. In software industry- operation department is the revenue oriented one and earning for the organisation. CEO is the one who take the responsbility for marketing, sale and execution of the projects. He is assisted by the HR & Finance Managers. As such, men from HR or Finance cannot become as CEO and chances are very very very remote.

I hope you will be today a successful ,happy worker.I will be more glad to hear that you have reached CEO level.
Now for others, who have related confusion and query let me say that ...before entering the professional life you need to observe your interests and expertise.If still there is a tie then you can try doing an internship,this will make things more clear .Passion towards a job really adds to one's growth and that of organization's.
But, if money is your priority then different jobs come with different pay scales depending on the organization's budget and how much they want to spend on a resource.Same job posts in different organizations may have different pay scales so you need to do research within your targeted area.
As far as becoming a CEO is concerned if you have investment and you are smart you can have a startup and you will be the boss of that startup.This is the easiest shortcut towards CEO post otherwise this will definitely require a lot of effort and of course luck :)
