MBA does not has to do anything for becoming Manager. If you have indepth knowledge of HR process and policies you can succed.
You said that you are working as HR Executive in Recruitment, I would suggest, you should look from some more responsibilities apart from Recruitments. Get involved in Operations and other statutory compliances. It takes time to be a Manager.
In case you want, you can go for any distance learning course in HR. What is your current location?
As mentioned by Mr. Mayur Shinde to become HR, MBA is not mandatory. But almost all the organisation looks for Qualification. As already you are into recruitment and if you are able to learn CoreHR skills then you can try for HR position. But you should try into entry level only. and Doing MBA will be an added qualification and makes things easy to become HR. :)
Sure you shall call me and not a problem.
I am not so good in selecting the institute. But there are good institutes as symbiosys and others and quite expensive.
One more thing is any how you are MBA graduate & its not an issue as you are not HR graduate. Most of the topics of HR will be covered in general MBA stream.
so be confident :)
You shall focus on working diligently and acquire relevant skills planning your career path. Please donít chase courses to justify your desired roles. You will be wasting money, time and effort and no guaranteed result.
A simple example is your own life, you majored MBA in Finance and you have ended up as HR executive ! Ask yourself what value does MBA-Finance hold ?
Once bitten but not shy, you are still seeking elusive courses and fancy shallow degree titles to bulk up your credentials ? what is the point in enrolling for a distance learning MBA / PGDBA / etc. You will pay a heavy fees and be dumped with books, which you have to read and go for exams ! you have been doing that for last (12 + 3 + 2) years of your life. Where is the practical experience, development of skills, exposure to best practices ? where is the grooming to be a Master ?
Your question is, how to become a Manager ? so ask your self, what is to be a manager. What does a manager do ? then seek that knowledge, experience, skills, ability to be one !
Seek relevant courses, workshops, training, seminars which will equip you with tangible skills to complement your work profile and help your grow better. Focus your energies on your job profile and innovate how you can make your work different, exceptional and inevitable then others. How do you make yourself indispensable part of the organization by your dediction, commitment to add value to process. Be it small or big. Get noticed !
Working hard has better rewards then chasing shortcuts of completing mundane courses. You will make more money, learn better, grow wiser, earn accolades, whereas chasing courses you will be stressed studying, expend money, time and effort for yet another mediocre degree with no guarantee to prosperous future.
Question is what are you really interested in ? Titles or knowledge ? If its knowledge you can take MBA books off the shelf and learn.
Acquiring some basic HR Text will be helpful to you always.
You may prefer studying part timely PGCHRM, XLRI through satellite mode. As far as i am concerning, this course is fully covering texts, as required to an excellent HR Manager.
that is a kind of mistake i shud say if u have done mba in Fin. and currently doing job in Recuritement field, now u r looking for some HR courses, again i guess u'll do a mistake and wastage of tym and money, ur recruitment experience is quite good and u can try for another HR admin or some related posts in co. i guess u'll get a better opportunity and also u can do bst in this recruitemnt field and get promotions and to become a Sen. head recruiter and then go on very soon. All depends on ur capability and practicle knowledge and skills. after all this if u still thinking about HR courses then you can do a short term couse which gives u practle knowledge also, not only theoritical, bcoz. that u hav already got ur Masters degree. Read HR books self way and also go through issues related to HR things here, it'll give u best and practicle knowledge of HR.

This is my first scrap to hrcite, although I was closely viewing the conversations going on. I appreciate the valuable advices from seniors.
I am working in a hydro power company since last 6 years & deputed as the executive (Admin & Liason). Here I have been looking after mainly liason related matters wiz. getting clearances from govt departments, land acquisition, statutory compliances & etc.
I am an MBA with specialisation in marketing but in initial days of my career started with HR. Will it have any negative impact in my future growth. I don't have too much experience of HR processes.
So please suggest me how can I justify my experience to work at managerial level.
Hats off to Hussain Zulfikar First of all!!!
Rashmi, For sure it will be an add on to do some Hr Course, Along with wot u can do at the hand is concentrate on ur present job profile well and strive to learn core HR Skills. See evrybody does job... but wot makes him different is his efficiency and quality of work. As already Mr. Zulfikar said Be it small or big! But get Noticed.
Be confident, all the luck!! No wonder with persistence u can do anything.
