    Dear Student,

    Yes, it is possible to change your specialisation in MBA before the commencement of your second year of classes. However, whether you would be allowed to do so or not would depend on your college and university.

    Your college may make the decision based on your previous performance and may require you to appear for an interview to judge your reasoning behind changing the choice of course.

    Please note that you will not be able to find any such provision in top institutes such as the IIMs. Private institutes, however, may have a provision for the same.

    Here is an article on how to choose your MBA specialization. When choosing an MBA course, it is important that you take into account its scope and relevancy to your career goals before choosing a specialisation.

    All the best!
