    Only you can decide which is the best option for you. Just because you are from a Computer Science background it is not necessary to choose Systems as specialisation. Also you have the option to take up dual specialisation so you can keep systems as one if interested in that area. Also in the final year you be having a brief idea of the subjects in each specialisation. You can select based on which area your strength is. Also you will be knowing which area you are faring better than the others. So you can choose that as your specialisation. Another factor for choosing specialisation is the kind of job you are looking for. You can select the specialisation based on that too.

    You can choose among any of the specializations mentioned in MBA. Since your college offers dual specializations, you can choose among ‘finance with HR’ or ‘Systems with HR’. The other good combinations are ‘marketing with finance’ and ‘finance with systems’. Since you have done your bachelors’ degree in Computer Science, I think it will be better for you to choose “systems with HR”. Don’t get quandary in choosing the specializations. All these specializations have excellent career opportunities. Once you complete your PG, you can seek out for jobs in public or private sector. There are numerous multi national companies that provide employments to MBA professionals within India or abroad.

Besides, after the first year of MBA you will have knowledge about all the subjects in MBA.Then based on your liking and interest and career goals you can make a choice.

    What do you feel you will be most comfortable with?
    "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." is an ancient saying .
    So choose your field based on your liking , your talent , market demad, Available jobs in the field you are choosing etc.
    Since your background was computers you should probably go for a MBA in systems.
    You can probably be recruited as a Project manager in some software devolpment company.
    You can also get a job in various IT firms as Project manager, SAP consultant, Technical analyst.
    Since it is a dual degree program you can choose marketing with systems.

    as,you have done your graduation in computers,it means you have a great computer knowledge
    then apply for M.B.A in I.T field.or if you have great interest in maths then pursue for finance...
    And if you have ability to work in very hectic conditions, then marketing is the best field as there are
    various job opportunities in it.

    I think hr and finance are good options. You can take any decision in your life with your interest only . Interest is the main thing in life. First you decide your easy and interest subjects and then do it.
