    Hi Mabin..
    You have taken Finance in M.Com & now you would know how the subject is. If you are interested in it, you take up the same. If not you take up Marketing. The latter is Fully theory unlike Finance. Check for the concepts covered. If its the same then take up Marketing itself so that you can exploit both specialization.
    ALL THE BEST.

    Re: Which MBA specialization to choose between Finance and Marketing with Commerce background?

    I dont Understand Why are you so Confusing to choose the Specialization in your MBA Course. Since you have already completed your M.com course in Finance and you are also form Commerce Background, then you can easily choose Finance as Your Major and Marketing as a Minor. You have completed your Course in Finance already, then I think you will not face any problem after choosing Finance, I Think you can easily handle Finance.

    If you are Interested to make your Career in Finance Field, then you have to choose Finance and after choose Finance as your Major, you will study Subjects like Security Analysis and Portfolio Management, Financial Institutions, Derivatives Market, Personal Finance and Forex. If you choose Finance then you will Perfect in Stock Markets, Commodity Markets and Other Financial Fields. So there are Lots of Scope in Finance Field because Finance is a Large Area and there are lots of Jobs are availiable for Finance Candidates.

    I think Finance in Better then Marketing, Because in Marketing you have to sell the Products, Complete Your Target and Give Innovative Ideas to the Company and Marketing is not Good for all because its required Potential, Capacity and Loyal towards work. If you have a capacity to sell the Product of a company then you have to go with Marketing, but I only suggest you to choose Finance Because you have already completed your M.com in Finance, So you will not face Problem.

    There are Lots of Opportunities are availiable for Finance Candidates, So please choose Finance to make your Career better and if you still in Doubt then please consult form your Lecturer or form some Senior, they will guide your better.

    HI

    It's better for you to go to Finance side in MBA - because you have done your M.Com in Business Finance, So ultimately it will be really helpful for you in MBA if you choose the same specialization..!
    Companies also give more prefer for you because you will be having 4years of study in Finance..! It really sounds good if you really have some good skills at finance side then...


    At the end of the day - decision is yours !! If you are really not having any interest in Finance then go for Marketing side..! It really has many options than Finance side..! And companies will give more prefer marketing side Students from MBA because they really want some good skilled people to sale and to navigate their products..!

    So, if you want a quick job after MBA - go for Marketing..! I am not saying that by doing Finance in MBA you will have less job options but surely Marketing side students will be placed in the job quickly rather than Finance students..!!

    Dear,
    Its a very good decision you have taken to do MBA after completing commerce .Its better for you to choose finance straight away without any thinking .Its becase finance deals with the commerce subjects more and it will help you as you have that subject.So choose finance rather than marketing which will help you a lot in building your career.

    Hello Guest,Regarding your question on choosing Finance or marketing,Its your choice friend,you have to follow your dreams based on your hold on the subject.You have to take what you are good at.

    MBA in Finance gives you a strong hold on Accounts,Economics and costing.You will have a great opportunity in all Financial companies,Banking sectors and in all Manufacturing institutions.
    MBA in Marketing gives you a strong hold on Sales,Marketing,Business tactics etc.It will give you a great opportunity in all Manufacturing companies,retail sector and such companies.

    But compared to Finance,Marketing gives you more opportunities.

    Thank you.ALL THE BEST!!!

    hello
    MBA after commerce background is a very good path. both finance and marketing has their own value in market as a career prospective. here the decision of choosing a core subject is totally depend on your own interest. better to think youself and according to your interest choose the best one which suits you for future needs. finance comes under accounts and banking sector where as marketing comes under sales and retail sector and manufacturing institutes.

    Re: Which MBA specialization to choose between Finance and Marketing with Commerce background?

    You have choosen mba for your post graduation its ia good decision as u you are from commerce background.but you are in delima that which trade is more good either finanace or marketing. I clearrly suggest you that you should take that one in which you take interest otherwise in future you face problem . So if yoy take interst in finance then it is good for you because you already studied this this subeject in your graduation in detail this subject has many calculatios also amd its little bit tough for those student who dont take interest in this.it has various job options for you as in banking .etc. Mba with marketing is also good field because its demands also increase in industries.the marketing includes theory more and its easy than finance so if you want quick job after mba then you go for marketing trade becase this side students get job quickly.but finance is also having more job opertunities .so take your decision as your choice. All the best.

    hi fiends.............
    I THINK YOU SHOULD GO FOR MBA IN FINANCE ,AS IT IS GOOD FOR FUTURE AND YOU WILL GET CHANCE TO EARN A LOT OF MONEY.BUT AN EXPERIENCED HR GETS MORE SALARY THAN A FRESHER IN FINANCE MANAGEMENT.SO I WOULD SAY YOU TO SELECT CAREER AMONG HR OR FINANCE ACCORDING TO YOUR CHOICE AND CONVENIENCE.
    THANKS
