Distance learning MBA in India has been slowly getting recognition across corporates & in various industry domains. From 2019, there has been significant growth in the number of students opting for distance MBA or other programs through distance education.

Working executives find it difficult to quit their high paying jobs to attend regular B-School. Fresh graduates facing financial hurdles also turn to distance MBA to keep looking for a job while still improving their skills.

Apart from the flexibility and features offered by institutions, The major credit of this jump in numbers goes to premium institutions like NMIMS Distance Learning. These Institutes invest heavily in technology to digitize distance education & deliver high quality learning Online at your doorstep.

App-based & Web-based lectures accessible from anywhere gives you a virtual classroom Experience through a robust online platform. Startups like UPGRAD made online learning from various IITs accessible to students.

The debate is, does distance education program carry the same value as its traditional counterpart?

Earlier, Distance MBA or Correspondence MBA did not offer any interaction with core-faculty, or access to the online library. The student had to solely depend on the hard copy of books or study kit & self-study format. The focus was more on attaining the degree rather than learning skills or acquiring knowledge. Today, with prestigious institutions offering 2-way interactive lectures with online doubt clearing sessions with core faculties, the student has an opportunity to learn, leap and lead their career towards a better path because corporates now look for candidates with real-time industry experience over a degree from the mediocre school. 

Distance learning offers the opportunity of studying, learning while working in an organization to attain experience and earn money simultaneously. Let us assume Mr. XYZ is making 4.5 lakhs per annum and now wants to pursue an MBA, he has the following options:

1. Start preparing for CAT/CMAT/XAT with a rigid work schedule, which is too much to ask for.

3. Pay college fees and lose a 2-year salary.

4. Join a distance MBA course from a top institution, save money on tuition fees, save money by still being employed and when he graduates with a degree, he has 2 more years of relevant work experience.
