Hi Sowmya,
Can you tell me from which Background are you?? if from science back ground then you have to think twice joining ICFAI... its damn tough... if you are planning to work while you study then.......I would suggest you to join Symbiosis..

Hi Sari
I would like to know 2 things here:
1.your perception about How tough MBA is (in general) and how ICFAI is different from other universities in other words what makes you to perceive ICFAI more tougher than others. Don't you think IGNOU is tough, don't you think MBA on a University campus is touch, don't you think MBA from any B-school is equally touch. Why ICFAI alone is tough.
2. What is meant by "Tough".Any fresher feels it tough to pursue a professional degree if he/she doesn't come with some industrial background.
I am really interested to know the difference of ICFAI from that of others.
Regards.

Hi Srinivas, Gaurav..

Sowmya raised a question about distance learning from ICFAI..

I questioned her if she is from science back ground( bpc, pharma, microbiology....etc)???????

I said ICFAI, BECOZ i only know about ICFAI as i have joined last year (Iam from science background)

Now why tough...

Its tough if from science background becoz, you have to start from scratch.. module is desingened in such a way Group A consists of Business communications & Management, which is theory and you would understand.....but unfortunately the very next Group B is finance and economics.....and you have only two and half months.. for the exams...finance one has to learn from journal entries.... and it took almost a month for me to understand the concept, about balance sheet,trial balance, errors in trial balance, BRS ...all these are just in chapter one......you have 15 chapters with core finance........i almost went mad trying to understand all these in just two and half months with no assistance.........

ONE MORE THING IS ICFAI IS COSTLY (ACC TO ME ) WHICH 54 THOUSAND IS THE INITIAL FEES AND FOR CONTACT CLASSES YOU HAVE TO 5000/- PER GROUP (TWO SUBJ) YOU HAVE 8 GROUPS, CLASSES ARE ONLY TWICE A WEEK....FOR THE POEPLE WHO WORK AND TRY TO TAKE SOME TIME IS TOUGH.. EVEN AFTER ATTENDING THE CLASSES I COULD ONLY COVER THREE CHAPTERS...... SO THE RESULT OBVIOUSLY IS KNOWN...... AND EVERY TIME TO WRITE EXAM YOU HAVE TO ALMOST 1000/- PER SUBJECT.......THIS WAY YOU WILL ONLY BE PAYING FEES.....

One of my friend joined Symbiosis..... she said its damn easy.......she could clear in one attempt ( also is from science background)....she referred ICFAI material and said comparatively is damn easy......i cannot explain how easy now as i dont know much about symbiosis.......)

I didnt comment on any other university becoz they are not as costly as ICFAI.....

I NEVER TRIED TO DEMOTIVATE ANYBODY BUT DEFINITELY WANTED TO WARN THEM JOINING ICFAI .....DISTANCE LEARNING......( SPECIALLY FROM SCIENCE BCKGROUND)....

what i have been discussing is only my assumption....yes but incase if you have any suggestions for people like me who have developed phobias towards subjects......joining costly universities.......I REQUEST FREINDS TO PLEASE ADVICE.......

Hi ,
Thanks to all.
Am from B.Tech (Chemical ) background. Some of my close friends are doing MBA from ICFAI.As Sari has mentioned, the second group has more of Finance subjects. That's the reason i was in dilemma and thought , will check with someone on this.
Another reason why i opted for ICFAI is that, most of other universities like Symbiosis, has closed their admission for this academic year.Moreover, i would like to persue my career on HR-Payroll , For that MBA (HR) from ICFAI is useful is suppose.If you are aware on other universities offering MBA (HR) and Admissions still open , please help out.

Hi Sari & Soumya,

I really compliment both of you for your clarity on the concept of going for an MBA. Both of you must take this debatable issue we raised as an enlightenment to other citehr members. I really endorse Sari for your reasonable justification of your statement and I really feel pity for your helplessness in your earlier part of your MBA when you had to really toil hard with the subjects. A subject is well learned when one really struggle hard to clear the concepts of that subject. Pl don't take amiss that your friends on the cite are criticizing your opinion. Now, Soumya must be very clear in her thought to go or not to go for this Course. Nevertheless, MBA from ICFAI also is not beyond your reach and try your best to achieve this if an assured career progression is offered by them.

We in the field of career counselling & HR for quite some time encourage students to have their say on certain important aspects as freshers are always updated on the curruculum which changes very fast to keep the needs of industry on their forefront.

I once again complement both of you for getting self & mutually benefitted of your sharing information through Cite HR. Keep doing the good work and I am sure this will enable you both to achieve fast strides of progress in your career path.

Wish you good luck.

To be very Frank and Straight forward any Correspondence Course will never get the Value that of a Regular Course at leat in India and too a Private player.
Instead of spending so much of money you can actually buy these books of ICFAI or borrow it from ur Friends in ICFAI and I think that will be more Cost effective and will give the same Value Addition !
If you want to get recognized in the JOB MARKET today then go for a Regular Course as it might also have a placement assistance or an active Placement cell kind of a machinery to help you get a job with HR Profile else you might end up in a generic Profile in the so called HR Department
All the Best

Hi all,
There is nothing like tough or easy. It is all with the preception of the mind. The mind set that comes in after psychological and attemptive measures to understand a difficult thing makes you think so. What is 'easy' to you may appear to be 'tough' to others. One man's food is another man's poison.
Go ahead with studies and sure you can do it Sowmya and others.
Besides being a HR head, I am a writer, administrator, trainer, consultant, artist, journalist, counsellor, orator, composer, face reader, psychologist, palmist and a poet. Had I found it tough, I wouldn't have added these knowledge faculties in me. I still take up the endless learning curve.
Interestingly, I am a contributing author selected by the ICFAI University. My copyrighted articles published by the ICFAI Press will sure help the MBA HR students in research and case studies.
Going by the standard, I rate the ICFAI syllabus to be good.

Hi all,
Somya's question is 'How good is an MBA HR Degree from ICFAI University'? It's about the course and not the university. Plz suggest her accordingly. As far as Science background is concern I am also a science student and I have passed in just first attempt. So it's all about ur ability.
29th April 2009 From India, Guwahati
HI friends, I am a MBA from icfai university in HR specialisation,
I feel that the HR is not good as such, I had to do many additional
readings to hone up my knowledge . Moreover the course is tough
as I have seen personally the level of questioins from IGNOU and can
comment that it is tough. What is specifically neglected in by ICFAI
IS THE INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS SECTION AND ANY REFERENCE TO ILO
I am willing to have comments on my observation from any body
who have already completed the mba course from any university.

Dear Mr Sunil, I am an MBA from ICFAI UNIVERSITY WITH spl in HR.
I feel you should stick to ur books from ur exam and desist from
any outside reading. The ICFAI relies on answers from its own study mat.
Further read the entire material as they can ask you from any place in their books(study materials)

[QUOTE=pvsnr2003;509195]Hi All,
HI Raj, don't think so much advance, first complete ur course which is damn tough.
Moreover as far as i know u will be given placement offer according to ur qualification and experiance. Regarding salary, it depends on the organisation. If u r already is paid higher than industry average (ur company might be having good financial position.) then it would be of no use. And lastly it depends on your power of negotiation.

If you are from science background ICFAI is dam tough. I am going thru the pain for last three years. The pass out % is very less.Think more before you take the decision. Regards, Satish.

Hi All,
First of all treat corrspondence course as a value addition to your present job or future prospect jobs. Dont compare it with real time courses which would fetch campus placements at entry level and all when you are already experienced in the industry. No problem in comparing fees and other financial investments required for different university programe but concentrate more in knowing what the subject is and what will be outcome.Even if it is tough work hard and know what it is other than just passing which would provide a braoder vision of the industry which ever you plan to work...

Please for God sake don't join Icfai its too worst than any other University in short It is just a money digger every tearm we have to pay 1000 Rs and in result its damn tough and result is fail .Please please save youself from this vicious circle and if U want please Go ahead.
I also joined Icfai till date am not able to clear my B group, If U ask me I ave joined MPM(HR)from Pune University which is valid more than Icfai university.

Hi Leena, Thanks for your message and advise. Well can we know something about the MPM University. Which part of pune is it located in. Are you still pursuing the ICFAI course or have you quit.
Well I am also pursuing ICFAI. I had registered for my MBA years back in 2003 and then I was working Abroad. I appeared for 3 groups of exams together but failed and decided to quit the course as I didnt find time to study.
Later when I came back to India late 2008 I decided to pursue my MBA again and appeared for my first exam in April 2009 and since then have cleared Groups A to H without any trouble. In April 2010 I appeared for Group I & J exams and flunked. I am in the process of re-appearing for those two groups in July and hope to get through.
I am just asking for info so I can pass this info on to others who are also seeking to do their MBA. They are many people who seek help so I can suggest them this.
Pls do let me have the info thanks.
Best Wishes, Raja.
20th June 2010 From India, Pune
Hi Raja,
Good morning!
I am pursuing MPM(Masters in personnel management)from Pune university through IBMR college( Chinchwad). There are various colleges in pune which is affliated to pune university and the total fees structure is just Rs37000/ for two years and if you are continuing with your job you can complete your course through evening batch that is 6to 8 PM which has same importance as regular batch.
If I get time I would update list of college which is affliated to pune university or you check on net.
Best Regards,
Leena.

Hi,
I am a Canadian currently considering pursuing an MBA or Masters in Human Resource Management. My preference at this moment is to accomplish this via distance learning from a reputable university in India. I would sincerely appreciate advice in this regard.

Hi,
Check the post by a420b in this forum titled "AICTE NOT APPROVED INSTITUTE (includes ICFAI's few centres)".
ICFAI was not approved to confer MBAs according to recent news.
Please check thoroughly before making a decision.
Thanks,

Hi,
If you are planning distance education for adding value to the existing career or want to study further PhD consider Annamalai University. It is approved and you dont need to study MPhil before going for PhD.
Thanks,

i was doing cfa in icfai but stopped after 1 year . They don\'t provide anything except books. Which is of no use. On the top it has lost its reputation. All the branches are closed . I suggest not to go with that. Now i am doing mba in annamalai university online mba through 361dm i can\'t just tell you how superb is 361dm they take online live classes and even make us to talk to ceo Of top companies. Its really best . If you have computer with GOOD internet facility even if power is good in your city then go with 361dm study center even you get a tablet free i think so
