MBA in distance mode is of not much use, you wont have real experience i did MBA in distance mode and its not much benefitial most companies wont even consider MBA in distance mode ;(

Yeah. I do agree with . Professional Degree in distant mode will not serve the real purpose of study. In that you can gain one more paper (so called certificate). That's all. If you go to college, the student professor interaction will fetch good result by which you can acquire good knowledge.
If you are working somewhere, then there will be problem of attending regular courses, where you can opt for evening classes. In worst case you can go for any correspondence course which is available in almost all the universities.
All the best Ms. Varsha

I am not going to terms Distance Learning good or bad per se`!

A blanket pronouncement in such matters is not necessarily.

Let us look at it this way.

Management education is not something you acquire merely from the books/reading material), not throught "teacher-taught" relationship. It is more of "learning" than being "taught".

If distance learning co-exists with a strong, supportive, work environment, where good competent, experienced professionals help you build bridges between theory and practice, I believe your learning can be faster, better, deeper and more value additive than otherwise, since even after a regular MBA, to learn reality you will (and in fact do) need a similar work and professional environment. Learning hands on, simultaneously with internalizing the conceptual inputs can be very enriching BUT that will depend largely on the individual-his/her commitment, effort, enthusiasm and willingness to walk that extra mile! If that does not happen anyone will fail.

The long and the short of the issue is the individual's capacity to internalize concepts, knowledge and techniques.

Regular MBA is a logical choics for those who are yet to complete formal academic education but to expect an individual to leave employment for a full time MBA may not be wise, right or even economical! The development of faculties of a grown up is different than that of a youngster. He perhaps can comprehend reality in more of its dimensions than inexperienced yougsters. Distance Learning could help him if he handles the flow of inputs capably!

A final word for the time being! You will come across rank inadequate regular MBA programmes and some excellent Distance learning programmes. Evidently the converse is also true. Therefore I would avoid lables per se`. We should examin the proposition, on facts, promise and if possible on performance before forming a view!

Open for responses!!!

Situation reveal the correct mode of action.It is how far you can turn the balance to your side. No doubt regular classes are far better than correspondence style of study.
In my view that I suggest you is to go for correspondence mode if you do not have ample time or other resources as required for regular classes. Education is liberating force and knowledge base once acquired can never go waste and sometime it gets shown in your attitude.Major is you want to pursue your long term cherished dream and planning needs to be done for the goal to be achieved.
So do not waste any more time and get started. Companies look for hands on experience that only comes from combination of education taken and practical work knowledge gained.
Best of luck.

Hi amirtha12 varshini,
Try not just to read mR. samvedan's reply but try to understand it.He gave the perfect explanation and its not just about MBA take any course be computers academic whatever his explanation is best suited.I have hands on experience with many students i dealt who are good at learning along with their jobs by applying their studies in to their day to day work.

Hello Varsha,
Samvedan has put your query in the right perspective. And Fatima has said it right--try to understand what he said rather than just reading it thru.
There's nothing like a 'perfect' answer to your query. It depends on your particular/specific circumstances & the 'most appropriate' answer. If any of your circumstances are different from those covered by Samvedan, pl post them here & i am sure you will get the most appropriate solution to you concerns.
