  • 1. Both the courses are PG courses.
    2. There are good institutes offering both the courses.
    3. In MBA you will be taught other subjects like Finance, Marketing, IT, Projects Management, etc, for one year. In MHRM the subjects are related to the only HR as the course says it is Masters in Human Resource Management.
    4. MBA is more a general course with a specialization in the final year. MBA is a very popular course many people want to do this after completing their graduation. Many institutes offer MBA. But chances of getting campus recruitments are more in IIMs and Business schools. If you can get a seat in institutes, MBA is the best option which will fetch you a good job with good compensation.
    5. XLRI is offering MHRM. Similarly, there are some other institutes that offer this course. If you do the course in the famous institutes you will have more chances of getting a better job.

    MBA is a very widely accepted course and the chances of getting a job are more easy with this qualification. So if I have to select between the two my selection will be an MBA. But tastes will differ. You have to make a decision based on your interests.

  • The basic difference between MBA and MHRM is that former would provide you an insight of the different streams such as IT, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Project Management apart from the chosen stream by the aspirants in the first year of two year degree course where as in the later course it will specifically deal with Human Resources Management for the entire course of duration.
    Though the both courses have excellent scope for the growth after joining in MNC companies but one has to ensure that the degree has been procured by some reputed institute such IIM Mumbai, IIM Lucknow, IIM Kolkata in the former case and for MHRM XLRI Jamshedpur has been chosen.
    Though there are some B classes schools as well for MBA but in such cases, you will have to investigate thoroughly regarding its course content and its campus placement status.

  • Full form of MBA (HR) is Masters in Business Administration Human Resources . Here MBA degree is with specialization in HR. While on the other hand, MHRM stands for Masters in Human Resource Management.

    Both these courses are similar. In both these courses Human resource Management subject is taught and students learn various aspects of HRM. But in both these courses the main difference is that in MBA all subjects are taught like Marketing, Finance , Information Technology, Projects Management in first year and Human Resource Management in Second year of Course. In this course one learn HR works that are useful in daily job like recruitment, payroll etc.
    While, if we talk about MHRM, in MHRM Human Resource Management is taught in Social context and focus more on CSR works.

    And both these courses are available in many good institutes accross India. But it is true MBA course is having more demand than MHRM. And most of the institutes offer MBA, where one can choose specialization like marketing/ finance / human resource management etc according to his choice or requirement.

    MHRM course is offered by many universities and college are given below:
    1. Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh
    2. BIMTECH, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh
    3. ICFAI Business School, Hyderabad, Telangana
    4. Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur
    5. Indian Institute of Social Welfare and Business Management, Kolkata, West Bengal
    6. Kakatiya University, Warangal, Andhra Pradesh
    7. Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar, Punjab
    8. Pondicherry University, Pondicherry
    9. St. Xavier College, Jaipur, Rajasthan
    10. University of Kerala, Kerala

    Both courses are good. Both gives good knowledge of Human Resource Management. But in MBA HR candidate will learn all aspects of marketing, accounting, finance, human resource and information technology etc.
    By doing MHRM youwill learn human resource in more detail and more practical work like recruitment process, employee selection process, payroll, recruiting techniques etc.

    So, if you really want to learn the practical aspect of HRM then choose MHRM course.

    It is suggested to go through the complete details of institute, faculties, course content and placement options etc.

    On completion of the MHRM or MBA HR courses one can get jobs in various posts like
    a) HR Manager
    b) HR recruiter
    c) HR Generalist
    d) HR Analytics
    e) HR specialist
    f) HR Strategy
    g) Technical Recruiter
    h) Compensation Manager
    i) Training and Development Manager
    j) Employee Relations Manager
    k) Talent Acquisition Manager
    l) Learning and Development Manager

  • MBA(HR) is a general business post graduate degree having a specialised paper of HR in it. So they will teach the general principles of business administration and some emphasis on HR in this course to the students so that a person applying for HR positions can say that he is having specialisation in HR in ones MBA degree.

    On the other hand MHRM is a Masters degree exclusively for HR functions and a person having a degree of MHRM is if applying for finance position then he may not be preferred in comparison to a MBA(Finance). So this is the difference that with a specific degree your chances of jobs are limited to a particular position while in general degrees you can apply anywhere. So both have their own pros and cons.

    Knowledge is power.
