The US Fed, who has bench-marked economic data as the main driver for rate hike, has evolved its stance on rate hike from 'Considerable Time' to 'Patient' and finally to 'anytime lift off'.


Anyone remotely close to Forex market would know that the timing of US interest rate hike is the most analyzed event in last one year. The US dollar has been the best performing currency ever-since financial markets started to factor in US interest rate hike.

Every sports worth the name seems to have a pro league in India which has commenced or will commence soon. These games include cricket, football, hockey badminton and lawn tennis.Now the question that need to be asked is do these leagues just have prestige value or can they make money too for the franchise owner.

Go for the job and prepare for CAT. Workex will help you get shortlist in Service Ops and Banking shortlists in placements. AVOID distance MBA. Has no value as such. Also you can give CFA if you want to strengthen your chances for Fin roles..

Hi Puys,

I'm in a dilemma whether to choose between MBA in HR or Finance.

(I'm not considering the colleges that have taken me, for now, because I only want to know about the courses)

Back ground: Engineering + 1.5 years of experience in IT, Female, good in debate and similar extra curricular activities, good in numbers.. 10 th - 89, 12 th- 89, grad -79.. , enjoy being with people, slightly judgemental.. assertive and have the guts to take up issues head-on (as thats how i get noticed), yet reserved and definitely not the chatty/partying kind. No finance connection as of now, but determined, ofcos!

I want to know how the jobs are and what will be good for me. People with experience or knowledge please help me out...

1. Are HR consulting/recruitment jobs mean head-hunters?

2. Do Finance guys have to goo up the seniors for promotions? (gen opinion and zero skills at that)

3. How are promotions in the HR line?

4. Are the financial roles highly energy consuming that you don't have time fr other things in life?

5. What are job prospects abroad after doing MBA in HR in India.

Hi, can some one please answer these few questions related to finance domain...

what's the difference between front-end, middle office and back-end roles?

How do they differ from one another? How will it impact at an individual level?

Are any special qualities/skills required for each (I reckon there will but if few points could be put?)

I'm interested in MBA finance. Lately I've been reading a lot on the same but I've not been able to get these quite clearly. As the placements also differ for each role kind, I was looking forward for insightful information....

@plant.waters do IT guys have a chance to get into front end roles or will they be pushed to back-end roles?
Away for L2 @Anonymous 5,986
I'm presuming you're talking about an I-Bank .Front end roles generally are M&A; roles or Trading roles or Sales roles or even helping Businesses raise capital.
Middle office roles are generally like internal control roles i.e capital structure of the firm,their strategy to generate profit etc.
Back end roles are generally tech roles or op roles...tech roles for software support and op roles generally for checking trade data etc. (Ps- as told to me by my brother an options trader)
