I am a final year Bachelor of Arts Economics student. Should I do a Master’s in Arts or a Master’s in Business Administration?

After successful completion of your MA in Economics, you can seek careers in Teacing, Research, and Publishing among others. In case you do your MBA, you can seek a corporate career in a bank or other financial institutions. Please decide which of the above interests you and meet a career counsellor who can help you decide on a further course of action.

What courses can I do after an MBA in Human Resources?

Please settle down well in your job and add value to the organisation that you are working with. After a year, add value to your career through courses from the Academy of Human Resources Development, the Indian Society for Training and Development, TV Rao Learning Systems among others. Do find a mentor who can guide you through your career.
