  12. Wajih says:

    Good evening, I am a student of class 10. I have just completed my board exams, and my ambition is to do MBA in HR, cz I am inspired a lot by my father who is into this field.
    But I still require some proper guidance cz my dad is busy most of the time and we dont get to talk about this.
    So, first of all i want to know, “will there be any demand for HR in the future?” As todays world ‘the 21rst century’ is all about technology and technology is most likely to replace humans..
    The second thing is, “how well am I going to be paid in contrast to a person who has done MBA in finance?” Or simply tell me, what would be the maximum salary a person could get in HR?
    Money is valued the most, and money is the most important thing now a days. So I find it necessary to know the details about the salary etc. in HR because as a human, our desires and wants never end, and I dont want to take any wrong step where i might have to compromise and limit my desires..
    I hope to get a help soon.
    Thank you.

      HR is an evergreen field…and the job opportunities do exist in every sector since HR professionals are required in every industry. Now coming to ur point, as it is a technology driven era and a person should always be familiar with technology (computer knowledge), salary is never a issue for a deserving person. You can make good salary in every field what you need is expertise and experience.

    • Hanif Khan says:

      If the decision is taken by your daughter then let her do the MBA and of course HR is the good career and it is a back bone position of any job sector. Now there are two options; either she must do the BA and then MBA or she can get the admission in Integrated MBA from any India management institution or from abroad. I think If she can do the commerce and then MBA that will be the best academic combination.
