Human Resources/Selection of Course Work - OD interventions / HR in Oil and Gas


Dear Professor Mani,

I am an international graduate student in the Department of Sociology pursuing a M.A at a University in Houston, TX. I am interested in pursuing a career in HR and have relevant work experience in working as a HR generalist and recruiter in the real estate industry as well as in the financial industry in India.

I am planning on enrolling for a course which would add to my knowledge and help me to find a job in the area of HR here in the US. I have the option of choosing two courses: 1. HR management in Oil and GAS sector 2. HRD in Organizational Development Interventions. I am confused about which course to choose and would thus like to know your opinion. I would be very grateful if you would kindly guide me to make the right choice and help me further my aspirations.

I have the course syllabus details. If you would need them to help you answer my question please let me know. Eagerly waiting for you reply.

Thanks and Regards,

I would recommend  HRD in Organizational Development as it is more broad based & relevant to all types of industry .

HR management in Oil and GAS sector has limited scope .

Since you intend to work in India , it may be useful to consider a course from SHRM ,which also operates in India ..

Incase you wish to speak to me for further guidance , you are welcome .
