    Yes, I will help you out to decide which way you want to head in selecting specialization of your choice. See, This question is always the matter of choice in deciding the specialization. It always demands your interest and passion to move ahead with it. If you are interested in HR then you can go ahead with this. But, You should have optimum knowledge required to pursue that specialization. Human Resource Management requires inter-personal skills , communication skills, leadership skills. In short, you need to have overall developed personality. This is the minimum prerequisite with which you can enter into your field of Human Resource Management and explore it further in best possible manner as you can.

    M.B.A. is a good option for B.Com students provided you choose the specialization of your choice. You need to understand the subjects and specializations that you are actually good at and actually interested in and then opt for this masters degree.

    I think all the options like HR, marketing, Finance are the best options for B.Com Students.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Nature of works

HR managers help their firms effectively improving employee skills, provide them training and development opportunities and increase employees’ satisfaction with their jobs and working conditions. In a small organization, a human resource manager or expert or specialist may require an extensive range of knowledge as they handle all aspects of human resources work.

    Human resource director:- As a HR director in large corporation you may supervise several departments, each headed by an experienced manager who most likely specializes in one human resources activity, such as,
    Employee relations
    Compensation, benefits, and job analysis
    Development & training
    Employment and placement
    Work environment.
    The director may report to a top human resources executive.

    Virtually every industry requires human resources, training, and labor relations managers and specialists. About 17,000 managers and specialists were self-employed, working as consultants to public and private employers.

    The private sector accounted for nearly 9 out of 10 jobs.

Job growth may keep increasing as demand for specialists in international human resources management and human resources information systems.

    Job prospects:-

Graduates with a bachelor’s degree in human resources, human resources administration, or industrial and labor relations should be in demand; those with a technical or business background or a well-rounded liberal arts education also should find opportunities.

    Demand for human resources, training, and labor relations managers and specialists is governed by the staffing needs of the firms for which they work. A rapidly expanding business is likely to hire additional human resources workers—either as permanent employees or consultants.


    Annual salary rates for human resources workers may vary according to occupation, skill, level of experience, result oriented work, training, location, and firm size. Annual earnings human resources managers were from $$98,400 up to $142,590.

    The average salary for human resources managers employed by the Federal Government was $76,503 in 2007; for labor-management relations examiners, $94,927; and for manpower development specialists, $86,071.

    Hi friend,
    MBA HR is a good option for you if you are interested in it. Usually for B.com candidates Finance will be recommended. But it seems you are interested in HR. If one chose his own interested field then surely he will get success. So chose which field you are interested. All the best for your bright career.

    Hello My Dear Aspirant,

    In My Opinion, Human Resource Management is not a good choice for B.Com Graduates.For B.Com Graduates Finance specialization is one good choice for You.Most Of the B.Com candidates will go for Finance Specialization.

    Of Course If You really want to go for Human Resource Specialization then You can go for HR Management Specialization.If you are having interest to go for Human Resource Management.Human Resource Management is also good to you but You must be having some skills then only you will be survived in the Human Resource Field.They are;

    1.Excellent Communication Skills
    2.Problem Solving Skills
    3.Good Listening Skills
    4.Managerial Skills
    5.Leadership Skills
    6.No Partiality in the Work
    7.Friendly with the employees
    8.Problem Identification Skills
    9.Decision Making Skills
    10.Innovative thinking Skills towards Problems

    But As a Management Candidate i won't suggest HR Specialization to You.If You go for Finance Specialization You will be having huge scope for getting good opportunities in the top companies.

    But Try to do from good business schools,Where You will be having good scope for getting good opportunities in the top companies.
