Some business students immediately know the field of study they wish to take. Others are only sure of their interest in business, not the eventual career path they will apply this interest to. As a B-school applicant or accepted student, it is beneficial to consider a special field of study.

Here are a few suggestions on how to choose a specialization:

  • Consider all available options and zero in on the one that matches with your career aspirations.
  • Make an assessment of your personality traits.
  • Your previous work experience can also be a factor in deciding your area of specialization.
  • List the job opportunities in your chosen field. Gather information regarding the job profile and salaries offered in each of these roles.
  • Your specialization paper should be chosen on the basis of interest.
  • All said and done, follow the path you are passionate about and lead yourself to a fulfilling career ahead.
