Im a 33 year old from India. I've got over 6 years of recruitment experience in a Consultancy (vendor). I do not have an MBA or a degree in HR.

My long term goal is to work as an HR Business Partner. I intend to pursue an MBA in HR from USA/Canada/NZ by 2016, but I would like to take up a relevant course or diploma or certification as first step towards HRBP. A course that can be completed within the next 6-9 months. I understand an MBA is the best bet, which of course I will be pursuing next year from India if not abroad.In the meantime I would like to wisely select something that can act as a backup to my MBA plans, in case that does not work out, I would at least like to be able to take my first step towards HRBP in India.

Apart from that, it would be great if I could get some advice about whether or not it is a good idea to pursue an MBA HR from mid-level colleges in USA/Canada/NZ, in terms of job prospects. I've read in several places that these countries usually prefer their own people for HR roles since they have a much better understanding of their own people and culture.

P.S. forgot to add, I am considering the courses offered by HRCI, particularly HRBP (HR Business Professional). Am not sure whether this would be the best course for me.

Have you explored GPHR and SPHR ?
These certifications are a must if you want to in US after your MBA. Its quite an investment , but offers a return till you complete the MBA Program.
Looking forward to hear from you.

Hi (Cite Contribution)
Appreciate your reply. Yes, those were the courses I was looking at from HRCI. Was looking to check if there are any other options available since I am not very sure about my experience being eligible for the GPHR SPHR courses. Im yet to check with them though.
