See the trends: By studying the market environment, you will get to know about some ideas of what electives might help you. For this you need broad, positive and a hopeful thinking. It is suggested to you that you should choose a specialization after analyzing all pros and cons of it, how effectively will it impress your career, how far will it take you with it, and what are the correlative objectives of an elective.
Choose the specialization that you fit into: For example, if you are glib talker, and can convince anyone with your words, you must be a Marketer; as an MBA student, you should choose ‘Marketing’ as one of your second year electives. If you good at handling funds, you should go for the Majors in ‘Accounts’. If you possess entrepreneurial skills, you should choose ‘International Business’ or the ‘Supply Chain’ or may be ‘Operations Management’ as your expertise. You should always know yourself; your inner-self will guide you with the right approach.
It is always counseled to you that you should never follow your batch mates while picking your MBA electives. It is possible that you and your friends have different interests; and if you have followed their footsteps, in future you might lose your affection in that field.
