Hi All
This is with regard to query of Prem Latha, I would also like to know what are the advantages/ disadvantages of doing Part time / Full Time MBA.
Why do companies consider MBA - Full time rather than Part time?
Is there any disadvantage of doing MBA - Full Time :D?
Kindly share your views with me.

Hey Latha

Forever we have great debate on Knowledge & Wisdom

Adding to your contest iam here to share my experience with you all participants of this discussion!!

For your Kind info that a Part time MBA aspirants also produce lot of dynamic efforts as similar to Full time aspirants in their working environ and with peers as par the assignment allotted to them as it concern

Besides, with value added points, in civil service examination correspondence earned degree aspirant who stood high level mapping in Civil Service Examination. Excellent stuff always breaks the Limit

In Real time working environ the issues may be same for all who earned Full/Part time/off-line/By Experience, here stands the subjective of empathy and Solutions Solving technique not any degree level

Full Time can help to some extend of percentage but not in all aspects as we compared to other streamline degrees

Eventually, I coudn't find any difference in shaping a person who’s level of competence may have a variation in Part time / Full Time MBA

Data’s may showcase drastic difference in mapping a person in Full/Part time degrees, but my perception always focused as- Preparation is science for wining success stories

Good Luck

cheers and regards


I agree with what Sanjeev says. This is the time for all the correspondence MBA's to wait and prove themselves with Internal growth. As he said I have personally seen lot of MBA candidates who are not worth for a penny and its not the candidates mistakes alone its the Institutes which denies its responsibility. I will accept IIM's as great if they really take one average student and groom them as a Professional. There is no real difference with the institutes. But there is lot of difference with Faculty. I have seen faculty's who really work hard to groom the students and transfer them as professionals.
Things will change only when we start looking into details and not at the cream. Corporates should also change its attitude towards Hiring and should never deny their responsibility at any time. The best example I can show is the responsibility which is shown in TATA's organisations. There is lot more to write on this I hope other will do that.

Hi, As I have mentioned earlier its the faculty and time you spend with them and for your education makes a big difference. regards Vijay
Hi all,
I would like to discuss one small info with you all.
How many we are in the community entertaining part time MBA's in our organisations.
Do we really following this?
Discussing on topic is easy but implementing is difficult..

Hi Sridhar That is the question na. Nobody prefers Candidates who have done MBA - Correspondence. Regards Sujata
Hi Sujata,
It is really not the case that companies are not offering good positions to candidates with correspondence degrees.
There are many companies who accept them, if the person has that kind of attitude, ability, and knowledge and skills.
we accept people who have correspondence degree and surely give them chance to prove their abilities.
Now, if we talk about advantages of full time degree:
# The faculty - I can tell you the difference now, I attended a program in IIM Ahmedabad. The Professors are really good, their knowledge and the information they provide is just excellent. I studied form one of top five B-School in India, still I found a difference.
# The environment - your friends, Library, ambience all matters. Think about it - a person studying alone and a person studying in group - which gives you a better result.
I would like to add, if a person is working and doing MBA thru' correspondence. It can add value.

Hi Sujata,
In my regard full time is better compared to part time and that too part time can be helpful to those who have been working and have a desire to do an MBA. Companies mostly prefer mostly full time MBAs because they do participate more in class room activities. they can learn more in the class room and can develop his personality whereas in part time the chances are very less. a full time MBA can develop his leadership skills and can learn how to mingle with his class mates and can put this in the organization he is supposed to work for.

Hi Sujata
As discussed earlier it is not that Distance education people lack knowledge.
They do have the stuff.
But it is all about recognition.
The trend is that the full time MBA's would be preferred than that of the rest.
The critical reason would be that the full time MBAs gain the experience and the corporate feel during their programme.
They B schools feed them with the corporate exposure.
Also, if an individual is in full time MBA he is expected to give his complete dedication towards the programme which is unusual in most of the distant learners.

well it was a good discussion, but after seeing all the arguments I feel arunachar is right, a person with work experience and part time MBA is a good option
