Should i take the bachelor degree in hotel management or human resource management?
i have heard both pros and cons of both majors. now im having a real hard time to deside which one i i should take. my opinion is : Human Resource Management would get better salaries, but would it be required to get higher degree (MBA??) in order to get a good position in HRM and as well as a good salary?? also i've heard that you dont even need a degree to get a job in HRM? is that true? as for Hotel Management, i am not sure i'd like to deal with all kinds of custumers, i am not very good at being patient. but would there be more job opportunities than HRM? also i'd like to know if its possible/easy for a graduate who has no experience in HRM to start his/her career in HRM? anyways, i would go for the one with good salary and good job opportunties regardless of anything. any suggestions would be a great help to me now. thanks!

I'd say Hotel Management because you can go into all sorts of fields in the hospitality industry and with so many competitors out there, they'll be looking for those degrees! The HR field does usually require an MBA to get the big bucks, and it takes quite some time to find a position because there are so many people... More
