This is one such unique and inspiring question I have come across on Meracareerguide. To be honest, you have an amazing career goal in life, and it is certainly possible if you adapt the right career path. Let me first explain the ideology behind being a subject guru and then will go ahead with explaining how you could become one in your near future.


Management guru/ HR guru:An exceptional professional who is a subject matter expert is known to be a management guru or a HR guru if working in the field of human resource management. Ideally a person needs to be an expert in his theoretical side of subject and along with it gain professional work experience in his subject and this way they are known as subject guru. So being an expert both in theory and practice equips the professional to be a guru of his subject. Now I shall explain the process of becoming how to gain expertise in theory and practice.

1. Theoretical expertise:
The only way to gain theoretical experience is gaining indepth subject knowledge by formally sitting for a degree program.
To become a HR expert, you need to possess compulsorily either an MBA with HR or a PhD in HR. Infact, having a PhD degree is more advisable as PhD's are usually engaged in creative research thinking and this way they develop new theories and concepts. PhD's work are almost 100% research work and this way they have good provision to develop new HR theories. Thus a PhD candidate who produces remarkable theories is known as the subject guru. If you look at the list of management gurus in the world, almost 85% of them are with PhD degree and have introduced remarkable new theories in their subject. The rest 15% are through other higher degrees along with long standing professional record. So I would advice you to give priority to studying a PhD in HR and then work on research area, kindle on existing theories, produce new theoretical concepts to become a HR guru. In case you cant commit to a PhD, you may undergo the MBA HR too.
2. Practical expertise:
While having an academic expertise is highly essential to become a subject guru, it is equally important to gain practical experience as well. This explains 50% expertise in theory and 50% experience from practical work. The knowledge you gain from your degree has to be practically implemented in a work setting. So completing your degree, you should start testing the theories in your day to day job. As you gain work experience, you tend to become a professional in your subject with years passing by. This way you will start testing your theories, develop strategies and this way you become a guru.

Finally it is equally important to get indepth subject knowledge by sitting for a formal degree course and as well putting the theory into practice. The art of becoming a guru is also through developing new theories and concepts.
