I am doing my MBA first year. I am a bit worried about the specialisation. Should I choose Finance? Is Finance better than Marketing? Or Marketing is better? Which will help me to develop a bright career?
Any elective you choose in your MBA course can lead you to a bright career. Your future depends on your knowledge, motivation, and performance on the job. If you perform well on the job, irrespective of your field, you will have a good future. Ideally you should choose your elective based on your interest. Are you interested in Finance more than in Marketing? Are you interested in Human Resources more than in Finance? See which elective interests you most. Job opportunity wise, Marketing and Finance traditionally offers large number of opportunities. So, if you want to be on a safer side, you may choose either Finance or Marketing.
