Hi,
I am currently pursuing an MBA (MMS) degree and have to choose my specialization within a week's time. I am quite confused between finance and marketing. My inclination is towards Marketing since the idea of Branding, Product development, Market research etc. excites me a lot and Balancesheets, P/L accounts etc dont.

However, I am a person who would not enjoy a job which involves too much of moving about from one place to another. And my perception of marketing is that it involves just that, because I feel that Marketing involves a lot of sales and that is something I would not be very much interested in doing. I don't feel that I will be bad at sales, but its just that I don't enjoy too much of traveling and moving about. So I may probably enjoy a job profile which requires me to visit the field once in a while, but which majorly involves working from the office. Hence I am confused about whether I should go for Marketing or not.

So requesting people who have a knowledge of the various job profiles in marketing to please guide me on whether I should go for Marketing, and which profiles would suit me based on what I have stated above. Would also be thankful if someone can describe the various profiles available in mktg.
