If the question is why one needs to be an MBA to be a qualified recruiter, then one must understand what MBA means. MBA is a multifaceted multidisciplinary approach to understanding the market scenario (read - any market). Now with respect to the Recruiting, one primarily needs to understand the demand of the organisation (from the job-position) and the demand of the incumbent(as an individual). For this, one has to take into account several factors like monetary, psychological, economic, intellectual, psychometric and even diasporic factors into account. The recruiter will have to deliberate about an incumbent on all these parameters. Now the recruiter may get a few minutes or hours or in some cases days for this deliberation, but he/she has to first clearly understand the parameters himself/herself and then align them to the need of the organisation. You may say that an ordinary graduate can also analyse on the above-given criteria but is that the only thing needed and can you absolutely assert that any general graduate is totally "industry-ready"? They may become industry-ready with practice and experience but that takes time. Many Graduates in this country are not even oriented to any definite Career Path, many start thinking about career only after they have finished Graduation. For them and for everybody else MBA is an empirically proven body of knowledge that makes you industry-ready in very short span of time by conditioning one to be more goal-oriented, analytical and logic-driven.
So, what I want to say is that MBA more than anything else teaches to ask the right questions. The answers to those questions may be subjective depending on the individual's approach and aptitude.
Moreover, recruitment consultants take Graduates because they serve just one function - Hiring. In corporate, the person who is supposed to be hiring will have to take care of other sub-functions of Human Resource Management as well, which you very well understand normal Graduates would not know about.
However, I do not advocate absolute bias against B.Sc or B.Com graduates being recruiters. In some cases (technical/ niche requirements), they may be even better than HR recruiters to understand the need of the organization but then they might be good for any one particular niche only, but then their role should be restricted to hiring only. Whereas the recruiter with an MBA is equipped with the knowledge of various functions of an organization and hence is by far a better pick than a normal Graduate.
