Whether the additional degrees affect salary increment or not?
I am a Science post graduate working in Pharmaceutical Company as Quality control officer. Now I have another degree i.e. MBA (HR). I want to know, Whether HR dept. would consider me for good salary increment because of this additional degree (MSc.+ MBA) or not? And do you think MBA in Operation Management would be more beneficial than the MBA in HR for me?
First of all, Congratulation for your MBA. It is good you have earned and learned something new. Now directly coming to your question- Whether additional degree will fetch you more many or not. It totally depends on your organization policy. Most of the good pvt organization want and stimulate there employees to go for further education. In short run you might not get direct monetary reward but in long run it will defiantly prove asset for you. As you have done MBA in different filed then your current profile. I believe it will be plus point for you. At top level management want that employee should have diverse knowledge and experience. You have to prove your self and through your MBA you have to add value to the organization.
Money is important but learning is far more important than it. I believe when you signed for MBA your prime concern was to learn something new. You have done it now you have to leverage what you have. Fundamentals of HR are not only helpful for HR. They are very much vital to all of us irrespective of our job profile. So my friend doing in MBA in HR is always beneficial.
I hope you will not restrict or limit your self in one or two fields. You will continue your journey of learning whether there is increment or not. Go for excellence success is the by product. It will come today or tomorrow.
