There’s an unnecessary shroud of shame covering distance MBA programs. People have assumed that these programs have very little to offer and do not supply the market with trained management professionals. Professionals with a distance MBA degree are better than full-time MBAs, if not equal. The following advantages of distance MBA make it so:
Distance MBA provided by institutes like Jaro Education and Sikkim Manipal Education serves a number of advantages, if you really think about it. Jaro Education, in particular, provides MBA degrees from international schools, like the Ural Federal University, Russia. Jaro Education also offers a doctorate in business administration from American Business Management and Technology College (Switzerland).
There’s also MIT School of Distance Education. It offers a number of managerial degrees as well, like, Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDM) and Post Graduate Diploma in Business Analytics (PGDBA).
A distance Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) from Sikkim Manipal University (SMU) costs around Rs 83,000. A full-time PGDM from various universities otherwise cost between Rs 14-18 lakhs. The curriculum is almost the same. The vast difference in the cost is because of the infrastructure and faculty, which you don’t necessarily need when you have online classes available.
Invest in other skills
When you’re pursuing MBA from distance, you can spend a large portion of your day learning an assortment of other important skills. Suppose you’re BSc graduate and want to join the IT industry as a manager. For better prospects, you can enroll yourself in an introductory course at NIIT. This will give you enough exposure to co-ordinate with your co-workers perfectly.
In most of the managerial posts, managers are required to have a strong command over Microsoft Word, especially Excel. A course in Microsoft Word, parallel to distance MBA/PGDM also goes a long way.
The mode of distance education is mostly digital. It has a number of advantages, especially when you have to recall a lecture or a test. The only drawback is that you cannot clear your doubts immediately. For some students, this proves to be advantageous, as they come up with doubts at a later stage and prefer clearing them after completing the entire lecture.
Study at your own pace
MBA can be tough to crack for slow learners and students who prefer taking time to understand a concept. With distance MBA, a student can choose his/her own pace of studying.
So, get started with a Distance MBA course of your own choice. To know more you can visit the Jaro Education website.
