Okie here is what HBS HR alumni said abt HR

Most (multinational) organizations explicitly mention HRM as a business discipline for entry-level careers in their recruiting process (e.g. Shell, Unilever, General Electric).

When seniority increases, about half of the alumni move out of the HRM specialisation into general management. Some examples of jobs that HRM alumni are now active in are: Founder and owner of own firm: Flex Groep B.V., Director Management Development, Senior Consultant, Mercer HR....

Why would anyone want to do an MBA concentrating in HR? ]

Now I am not interested in HR...but that statement hurts :(. Especiall coz it comes from some one whose post I read with great interest as they are mostly very informative.

I understand the statement comes from an assumption of "average indian","no or little international exposure" pool...but.


It's beyond me.


Perhaps..



I am not aware of the real recruitment scenarios in HR...but what has been put forth seems logical...

Hope I am taken in the correct sense of my word...

Susie is right. I am not clear about the scene w.r.t the HRs, but the marketing jobs do have a problem. If you need proof - hear this. The present students of Kellogg said there are companies which are not too keen in sponsoring H1s for Indians. But the problem is not only abt the H1 costs, but also that they are not keen in offering marketing jobs for non-US guys. Coming from Kellogg (the place for marketing) i guess u'd agree.

Yeah i agree with both of you fellas. In marketing It suckzzz for indianz. And US ppl obviously prefer local ppl(i mean US ppl) for marketing.

When you say that all the HR people you know, who studied in HBS, run their own company, the obvious question is how we can judge this as an indicator of success in getting jobs after your MBA? I think that is what we are trying to figure out here - not everyone can start a company right out of school and not everyone wants to :)


yeah,IdaY thatz a good question. I will try to figure out answer to this que.
Soon will let you know ppl.

Hmm.. does alpha_victor have a company of his own? Or do you mean the company they were in before joining HBS? If the latter, then don't you think one should already be working for such a company and that company should agree to pay fatshot HBS grad?



dudets susie,( is it okie??)

I dunno whether alpha_victor or beta victor have a company or gonna work for themselves. But as far as i know and met HR's in HBS. They are living independently. And also try to see their website for more information. what type of pre-background,HR ppl have.

All I can say is, trust me you won't find such things. If you have any evidence then plz let us know..... After getting in HBS for 2yrz, you will get you know MANY CULTURE.So it doesn't count where you come from.


It's a fact that marketting/general mgmt positions are difficult for international in the US. Consulting companies which require long hours will take the trouble of visas for Indians because Indians will slog it out for them and they'll get their money's worth.

dude susie,
I appreciate your thoughts but truth lies in other side.
Harvard (?)

but I doubt an average Indian will get into such programs and even if he does, I doubt any company will hire him

trust me, brown skin will work against you.

This holds good for people seeking marketing position in CPG industry in the US. They'd rather have someone who really knows US culture - NOT Indians who've grown up in India.

Why would anyone want to do an MBA concentrating in HR? It's beyond me. True, a couple of programs DO offer this - Cornell, Harvard (?) but I doubt an average Indian will get into such programs and even if he does, I doubt any company will hire him - banks and consulting companies are quite open to issuing visas for Indians. IF at all a comapny in the US hires an MBA for HR position, trust me, brown skin will work against you. This holds good for people seeking marketing position in CPG industry in the US.
