I want to pursue a double masters in HR(1 yr) and marketing(1 yr), will they complement each other or will it be a waste of my valuable time?
I want to pursue my career in HR only but I believe that marketing would give me a great ground knowledge on negotiation techniques, consumer behaviour knowhow to gauge customer(employee) satisfaction and leadership skills and effective communication techniques that would improve my communication, help in recruitment, staffing, which again is a great plus. I believe that in this world of marketing gimmicks, a sound knowledge of marketing would keep me ahead of the crowd.
But now, will it complement my degree in HR to any extent? If yes, then for which roles of HR would it help?
I also look forward to do a Lean Six Sigma certification, now can these 3 (HR,Marketing & LSS) be tied by a single string considering I want to move into HR domain in the future.
