Hi, This is Lalitha and I completed my undergrad in Information Technology in 2009 and currently working with Tata Consultancy Services as a software developer for the last 6 months.I have also been working as a part time freelance writer for leading newspapers in India on various genres like retail,cinema,celebrity chats etc...
I have always been passionate about getting into HR and right now,after working on the technical side for 6 months,I'm certain that it's the people whom I want to interact with more than computers.I'm confused about a whole lot of stuff and I would like to sort them out before getting into the course required for entering the HR domain.
1.I'm still contemplating whether a MBA or MS in HR in the U.S is better but one of the main reasons that I'm thinking about doing a MS in HR instead of MBA is due to the fact that I have very less work experience(8 months) and MBA mandates at least 2 years of work experience.So I thought that getting into masters (which requires no work experience) would be better since I want to enter into HR as soon as possible and a masters would also help me learn all aspects of HR in detail.Am I right or wrong?Which is the better one-MBA or MS in HR or do they both have equal weightage when it comes to placements?
2.I would like to start my masters in HR in 2011 and I'm a little apprehensive about the fact that I have very little work experience though I'm really interested in getting into HR.Quite a few people and online forums have suggested that top universities in the U.S for HR like Cornell, Ohio state university,Purdue have a really good course structure for masters in HR.Is work experience mandatory for getting into these universities and is preference given to those with work experience for the course?
3 A number of forums have also suggested against doing a masters in HR in the U.S since it's very difficult for Indians to cope up with their American counterparts especially in the HR domain.What do you think about this and should I start applying for a masters in HR for 2011 or should I just wait for another 3 years and then go for a MBA ?
4.Is there an MBA for PR(public relations) or MS in PR and what are the top schools for PR?
Please guide me in what my next step of action should be.
