I study in Std XII (Commerce with Maths) and I wish to pursue B.A. in English Literature (Hons.). Is it a good choice? Is graduating with B.Com (Hons.) or B.A. in Economics (Hons.) a better choice? I plan to do an MBA (HR) after graduation.

As a HR manager, you’ll need good interpersonal communication and interaction, and ability to get on with all types of people, for that a course in English may help. At the same time B.Com. or graduation in Economics can help with studies of MBA. But finally it is your preference of subject in graduation. Go for a subject you’re most comfortable with because all graduates are eligible for MBA (HR).
