I've done my B.E in Computer Science n working as a technology developer in a reputed MNC....Im planning to do my Executive MBA in HR....
Iv head from many people that my B.E graduation would turn into a waste if i get into HR field as any basic graduates like BSC , BCom , BA can get into this easily n do it....An engineer would waste his/her engineering skills if u get into HR...Is this true ???? Please clarify this to me n suggest me if i need to change my mind abt doing HRM...N also suggest me to which field i need to get into in management to flourish well...

Hi Sunitha,
It all depend on your likes / dislikes of your carrer / work which field of MBA to choose. MBA HR will always be good , since in any field you go you have to deal with people. HR is about human relations. Even if you remain in your same field for higher post MBA HR is always useful. Like if you want to make a carrer in HR then also MBA is added advantage.
So basically u need to identify what type of work u enjoy doing.

Dear sunitha
HR field is open for any person who has good understanding of people. It is nothing but peoples management. To study behaviour pattern, training, industrial relations, wages and salary admin, liasoning all will shape a person as a true HR Manager.
Your engineering skills can be a best input for the following area of HR
1. Training and development in skills of Production, quality, maintenance
2. Time and motion study to fix wages, incentive, compensation
3. Job description
4. Purchase and stores management.
Education does not go waste, unless we implement truely in our day to day working life.
All the best for your career in HR Field
with cheers

I am a live example for the same... I did my B.Tech in ME. But then my passion was always HR. Now your BE would not go waste if you apply in the right industry. Cheers, Mallet.

Dear Sunita
Even myself BE (CS) with MBA(HR).
Engineering is very much helpful for MBA student to know and understand all the technical aspects in a better way.No doubt work exerience help a lot in MBA but MBA for an Engineer means a better,suitable and stable job.

Dear Sunitha,
A thing goes waste only if you let it. If you decide to extract the best out of it, you will.
Try and imagine the knowledge in that is stored in you. BE (CS) and MBA HR - you can emerge to be a powerful player handling both sides with ease. You would understand the requirement of the employees and also the management's point of view.
I have come across many posts where the need has been for an HR person but with an engineering degree. I could not avail the opportunity. Maybe you can make the most of such opportunities.
I wish you success always.
best regards
