It is estimated that almost two thirds of India's gross domestic product (GDP) comes from family businesses. Little wonder then, the majority of Indian students go abroad to study business and commerce-related subjects. At the Master's level, an MBA is by far the most popular option. The degree offers specialisations in a number of subjects including marketing, finance and accounts, human resource management, strategy, operations and logistics and general management. Thanks to the tremendous growth in the online business space, e-commerce, hitherto an unconventional specialisation, seems to be gaining momentum among Indian students. Of course, the majority of students yet opt for finance as a specialisation as the job prospects in this field continue to be attractive.
