I am a graduate i have done my graduation in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.Now i am looking forward to start my career in HRM .I would like take up a short term course in generalist HR and get an entry level job and then after few years of experience i would like to go for Full time MBA(HR)/Executive MBA.
I would like to know weather this type of decision useful or not because few are saying that it is not at all useful taking up a short term course in hr and it is hard to get a job for a graduate with these short term courses and saying that MBA is MUST for starting a career in HR .Please suggest me the best solution.

What you have heard is correct - why would a short term course be preferred over a full course? There will be gaps in your studies because certain aspects would not be taught in short term courses - you will end up spending your money unnecessarily.
Education is not cheap. I would suggest you go for a full time course from a B or C institute if your finances permit. If finances are an issue, then look at a part time course.
Correspondance / distance learning MBAs should be avoided as most organizations discriminate against such degree / diploma holders.
Hope this helps.
