Some body asked me a query as to how good is the correspondence course of MBA.
Whether they have placement service for correspondence MBA courses.
What is the rating of this course in job market?

As a general rule, correspondent course for mba is a waste. No one gives it any weightage
Employers are willing to consider only candidates with full time MBA degree. They rarely recruit part time mba students. Part time mba is considered as only additional qualification that helps you compete better with others having experience in your job.
Correspondence MBA is worse. At best it helps in some PSU jobs where there is an EB requiring a post graduation for promotion.
I have not heard of any one having got campus placement for correspondence mba

Dear Sir,
Correspondence courses are good as a supplementary education. Not all have privilege to take birth in economically well-off families. Therefore, children from less-privileged or under-privileged families join the job market after graduation or even before that. However, does it mean they should not gain even glimpse of management subject? To enhance their knowledge, correspondence courses are created whether for MBA or any other subject.
In contrast, full-time MBA course helps in not just developing the knowledge of management science, but building personality as a whole. The students get exposure to the guest lectures by senior management professionals, group work while working in projects and so on. Along with the regular course, it helps students in building their communication skills, presentation skills etc.
Whether MBA from correspondence course or regular, all the MBA degree holders are expected to remain in touch with the management subjects that they learn during the course. They are expected to reflect and link the learning to the situation that they pass through. However, students from either stream are guilty for not doing so. MBA holders forget most of the knowledge when they need it most or when they actually become a manager.
For Mr Saswata Banerjee: - Sir, you could have been less severe in your judgement. Yes, you may dismiss the correspondence course as waste, but then we live in India, a country where even trash has a value. By the way, what is the record of the students of B-school. It says that Only 7% of India's B-school graduates employable: Study You may click on the hyperlink to read the full news report. If 93% MBA students are unemployable, then should we not call B-school as factories that produce "waste"?
If the employability of the students from B-school is so poor then are the companies justified in discriminating between the students from B-school and correspondence course? Of course not. But then Indians prefer to live with the bundle of contradictions. This is the one contradiction from the bundle.
Thanks,
Dinesh Divekar
