Dear Ashish, congratulations on your career graph so far. Good to hear on your decision to study an MBA. Before you take on your MBA studying decision seriously, it is very essential to double check if the MBA is really apt for you. For that, can you please spare a few minutes to take on the psychometric testing from this website. This test will assess your personality, skills and abilities and will judge if you will be a right candidate for doing the MBA or not. Lots of students get attracted to MBA for glamorous reasons and

blindly pursue the MBA, without analyzing if they have the skills for success that an MBA degree will cater.

You can also question yourself if you would like to lead people, become a manager, mentor your sub ordinates and so on. If you say yes to all these three questions, then take my words you are absolutely the right candidate to study the MBA.

Unorganised Sector

Choosing the right specialization:Reading up your inquiry, I can suggest you two options.

1. MBA with Human resource management: You can study MBA with HR, as you have worked in a BPO for nearly a year. BPO work is highly soft skill, people oriented role and this very well sinks with those skills that a human resource professional will require. A HR must be highly people oriented meaning - they should have great customer service skills, enjoy interacting with people daily by mails, phones, face to face and emails. You should have developed all these skills and of course may have demonstrated them during your work in BPO, so this absolutely makes you a fit for the MBA with HR.

The main advantage for you to do MBA with HR is that once you graduate with your MBA degree and start your new job, you will definitely find the role at your ease because these skills have been naturally embedded in you since your times at BPO. Trust me, I know many HR who are poorly performing at work because of their poor people management and customer service skills. Your one year BPO experience would highly equip you into being an HR.

2. MBA with Information management:This is the second choice that strikes my mind after reading on your one IT experience. Studying this you may get manager roles or team lead roles in any IT organisation across the country, yes in fact even in your current organisation. If you choose this specialization, you can stay on the IT side all your life plus have some percentage of managing roles.

The only difference between the two is, studying an HR will take you completely off the technical side where as if you choose Information management, you can stay on the technical side if you love it. However, if you love both technical and hr, then you may choose to become a SAP HR. For this you should anyway study MBA with HR, and try for SAP oriented HR jobs at IT companies. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.
