Hello My Dear Human Resource Career Aspirant,


Glad to see you approach CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and advice on your career query. I am sure that the experts here will be able to guide you appropriately.

Human Resource Management as a career option:

Human Resource Management is a very fantastic field to work in and its basically a field which involves communication, interaction, meeting with all types of people like educated - uneducated, professional- unprofessional, freshers - experienced, etc. HRM basically about managing people for the growth of the organisation or business. Without people businesses cannot function and today with growing complexities, people management is one of the most important skills which is being looked at by the industry in the candidates. HRM studies will teach all about these aspects.

You are absolutely right that the eligibility criteria of Human Resource Management does not at all mention about maths as a subject as mandatory.

Any MBA requires little bit of maths knowledge and command, however not upto the level of a MSc Maths candidates. Only simple maths is required and not complex algebraic maths.

I am happy that you have already planned for your future career path way and choosing Human Resource Management is good.

Dont fear about maths but try to make it a friend atleast who will rescue you when you are in trouble in your work.

Human Resource Management also involves work like Payroll (salary processing of employees), Provident Fund calculations, Gratuity calculations, leave management, which requires mathematical calculations, however these are very basic calculations and today computers have made the work very easy and fast. However you should definitely be aware of what are the calculations.

I would definitely say that please go ahead for MBA HRM from a premier BSchool in India. More the Bschool os good, more your placement and career will be good.

Before going to MBA, hope you will complete your graduation with good marks. All the Best for both!

Do come back to us in case if you wish to ask any thing more about this or have any other thing to ask regarding your career growth, psychometric assessment tests, etc.

Best Luck!

Hello student, definitely yes. You can confidently go ahead with pursuing an MBA with HRM. Doing MBA with HRM is highly possible for every student from any subject background. Students with different undergraduate subject backgrounds like History, Arts, Maths, Economics, Music and many more are doing MBA with HRM and this way, your background in Maths is never a problem to you doing the MBA with HRM.


There is one very good advantage for you having the background in mathematics. This is during your MBA competitive entrance examinations like the CAT, MAT, ATMA, GRE, GMAT and many more. Almost each of these competitive examinations have skills test in maths, English and analytical thinking equally in parts. It is often found that getting a bit high score in quantitative section (Maths section) is often said pleasing to the admission commitee of the business schools. As you have studied Maths in your undergraduate degree I strongly believe you can easily crack your Maths section of your competitive exam paper. Infact I can definitely say it would be a cake walk for you. This will relatively keep off your burden from quantitative section preparation and you can devote good time with preparing on the verbal (English) and analytical thinking sections. This way you can expect a very good overall score in your competitive exam, provided you work hard for the exam.

You can consider applying for the following business schools for a PGDM in HR or the MBA in HR.
IIM Calcutta, IIM Ahmedabad, ISB Hyderabad, IIM Bangalore, IIT Kharagpur Vinod Gupta school of management, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay Shailesh Mehta school of management, IIT Roorkee, IIT Madras, XLRI, Symbiosis, SP Jain institute of management, FMS University of Delhi, BITS Pilani, IIM Khozhikode, MDI Gurgaon, and IMT Ghaziabad. Almost each of these schools accept a competitive exam score like,
All the IIM's: CAT exam
All the IIT's: CAT/ GATE
ISB Hyderabad: GRE/ GMAT only
XLRI: XAT
Rest of the schools: usually accepts CAT or administers their own entrance exam.

With the MBA HR, you can definitely work in the field of human resources. However I would sincerely advice you to gain a few years of work experience in HR, by probably working in the HR department or in the recruitment companies. With atleast a two-three year work experience, you can expect a decent salary post your MBA degree. Your chances of being hired in a job will also be relatively easy with some work exp after your Maths graduation. Hope this helps. All the best.
