    There are many specializations in case of the MBA course. You can choose the specializations which interests you more. Both the HR and Operations are streams which has immense scope. The scope may be in both the sectors. Since you are from the software field, the operations and systems group will help you to get in to the same technical area. HR is basically for those interested in personnel management, recruitment etc. Hence you can select the stream which you are more interested in. You can evaluate the opportunities with respect to each group and take a decision accordingly.

    MBA is a post-graduation qualification given by Universities (the IIMs, XLRI etc. grant Diplomas) to certify that the student is ready for a business role in an organization.
    A software engineer usually works in the delivery side of the business. That is , after a project is won and comes to the firm, the delivery people get to work on it and follow specifications. Therefore a delivery person only sees a part of the business and works on it.

    all stream in MBA is good it depends upon your interest as your software knowledge did not help so much in your MBA degree. so any stream you can select with your interest.

    Hello my dear aspirant,

    As a software developer,You can go for management education, here you will be having chance to get more opportunities and you can get promotions in your career and You can get more packages with MBA course.

    MBA HR and Operations management both are good to pursue in MBA.In this two fields you will be having chance to find more opportunities.But in HR,You can find very less opportunities and Openings are also very less in HR field.

    If you go for Operations management you can find number of opportunities in all the top ranked companies But my suggestion is you can go for IT Management or Systems management etc..in this fields you can find more opportunities.Your work experience is also helps you to get more opportunities in your career.As a software developer IT management or Systems management are the best specializations in MBA.You can find more employment opportunities mostly in software companies.If you do MBA from top business schools then You will be having chance to get opportunities directly as Project Manager.

    In my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, MBA(Masters of business applications) in Information technology would be best for a candidate who has completed his or her software development course.You have asked that which kind of MBA is good for you- operations or human resource.
    If you have to choose from these two options, then MBA in operations would prove to a much better option for you.
    The reason being that you already have some knowledge about the kind of technology tat is used in new kind of industries.
