Somebody tells me that a dual degree program in finance and ops is much better than a single degree program? Is it true?

    Hi,I would advice you to opt for the dual specialization only if you believe that you can perform and score well as it gets tougher by doubling the burden. Things are totally opposite if you compare both dual and single specialization courses.Pursuing only dual specialization won't help attain a good job. It depends on how you have handled the stress , understood the subject and scored well. It is your hard work and determination that would pay you at the end. Hope this will help.Feel free to raise more queries otherwise you may close the question by liking it or marking it as best answer. All the best!

    I would like to agree with the fact the dual specialization actually adds a lot of value to the indivisual and the kind of placements he gets. and with Indian economy growing at 8% plus, there are going to be a lot of opportunities in the space of finance and operations.
    i can take my example here. i am a student of the Delhi Business School of Finance and marketing dual and because of this I got placement in HSBC financial services. At DBS, othervise also I got SAP/ERP trainng, and career services which really helped in getting placements.
    So i beleive that It definitely has something to do with the business School also so choose

    Hi Ragini
    Please don't fall for any such myth and choose the dual specialization only if you feel that you can do justice to both the specialization and score well. As rightly stated by Manmeet your success would not depend on how many specializations you have taken but, on how you perform on the programme, and how you use the knowledge earned. Your hard work would pay at the end and not how many specializations you have taken.
    Hope this resolves your query. Feel free to put up more queries In case your query is resolved please close this question by choosing it as a “best answer” or pressing the “thumbs up” icon.
