    Which MBA specialization suits my personality and interests ?

    Iím a techie with 5 yrs. of experience. As expected, Iíve gotten bored of this job. I was interested in a job which allows me work on small projects(ranging from 1 year to 4 yearsí duration) across the globe and also which would allow me to interact with people of different cultures and travel the world (and yes, it needs to be well-paying also).

    This is because my STRENGTH is in my ability to communicate and interact with different people well. Iím also good at analysis,assessment and planning. I'm a cheerful,outgoing personality who loves challenges. This is also what I aspire to do in my future life.

    My confusion is which stream of M.B.A. do I need to specialize in, to achieve the skill-sets required for the above mentioned work profile? Also, which are the best Universities in the USA or Europe which will provide me with this specialization?

    Of course, I HATE compromising on quality, so it will be either the IIMs,XLRI,ISB,etc or an A++ University in the U.S. or Europe for me- I have the courage to fight for what I want.

    Requesting you to provide some insight.

    Thanks,
    Fickle-Mind.

    Since you have mentioned that the technical job is not interesting for you it is better not to pursue the Information Technology course. Also you have mentioned that you are more interested in a job where it will require you to interact with people. You have two options available for the same i.e. either Marketing or HR. Marketing will be a better option since you have mentioned that you prefer a job where travelling is required. Also it is a good decision to join only the top rated institutes. For joining the institutes here in India you need to appear for the CAT exam. If you would like to pursue a course in HR then you will need to appear for the XAT exam too. If you plan to go abroad the you need to select the country where you would like to go and based on that appear for the exam required. Like for going to US you need to appear for both GMAT and TOEFL. Some of the known institutes are Harvard, University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), Kelloggs etc.

    MBA is an excellent option for higher studies after any degree. It gives candidates lot of options as for career growth. Your choices of colleges are excellent and are amongst the top colleges in the country. You can also do an MBA in any of the foreign country. But as to get admission in to IIM, XLRI etc, you need to score excellent marks in the CAT and XAT entrance exam as well as the interview. If you manage to get admission in to these colleges then you can take up specialization in marketing. Some institution also offers Dual specialization. If so you can do a marketing specialization as well as IT or Systems specialization. It is not necessary to do a specialization on the basis of your education background. But it will definitely give you an added advantage.

    MBA in the marketing field will be the best option for you as stated by your profile..
    Because marketing has a great heirarchy of working levels from the basic of the salesman to that of the highest level managers in different field.In between this,you will have all the experiences of what you have listed.

    AS PER MY KNOWLEDGE IT WILL BE BEST FOR YOU IF YOU DO DUAL SPECIALIZATION IN MARKETING AND COMPUTER (IT) I THINK THIESE TWO FEILDS BEST SUITS YOUR PROSPECT.TO STUDY ABROAD YOU HAVE TO APPEAR FOR EXAMS SUCH AS TOEFL,GMAT ETC.ALO YOU CAN DO MBA IN IIMS,XLRI BUT FOR THAT YOU HAVE TO BRING 99% MARKS IN CAT,XAT ETC

    Same ie you either have two available options for marketing or human resources.

    Also joining the top-rated institutions is a good decision. Institutions in India to get here you need to appear for CAT examination.

    If you want to pursue a course in human resources, you will need to appear for XAT exam.



    GMAT and TOEFL you are going to America to appear both as to the need. Some known institutions, Harvard, University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), Kelloggs, etc.

    hi friend
    after reading your story as per my knowledge you should take these subjects for your mba course as you are good at analysis,assessment and planning so you should take MBA in Technology management or MBA in Global management and also you also have cheerful,outgoing personality who loves challenges so you may take MBA in Human resources or MBA in Executive.

    marketing
    and
    human resources
    are the fields which will best suits you according to your described personality of you.
    Dual specialisation is also recommended for you (with either one of above written option )with IT(information technology).

    Hello friend!
    As per your interest you are not interesred in IT FIELD.
    so its better option to do MBA (master of business administration).
    As per your interest i can say you can choose humanresourses as your MBA specialization,
    so that you can test and hire IT requirements in top MNC'S.

    GOODLUCK!

    Moreover the specialization in MBA is to be choosed when you passed first year.

    So no need to worry as you will know about your interest more in first and accordingly you can choose the field.

    There are many colleges which gives MBA in other fields also.. like:

    Indian Institute Of Foreign Trade, Delhi and Kolkata and symbiosis institute of international business, Pune offer MBA in International Business

    Indian Institute Of Forest Management, Bhopal provides Forest Management

    Mudra Institute Of Communication, Ahmadabad provides specialization in Communications

    There are many B-schools which even provides dual specialization.

    So go as per your area of interest and dnt worry about anything else.
