MBA has always been one of the most looked out courses in India from a long time. People pursuing MBA as their career has been rising year after year. The reason for the increase in the number of students going for MBA is clear. MBA is a very reputed post-graduation degree. MBA, if done from a good institute ensures good salary, lifestyle, education and career opportunities, thus making it very competitive and successful over the country. But on course of doing MBA students have to face certain problems, like, high fees, institutes away from home, no job during the course, etc. To counter such problems a new way to doing MBA has come up in recent times, known as Online MBA. Online MBA or MBA from home or correspondence MBA, is a technique that institutes have come up with in support of the students. With Online education, students can take advantage of various benefits, which they only dreamt of earlier.
Online education is not a very complicated thing now a days. With the new and advanced technology that has come up in modern times, communication has become easier for both the students, as well as the institutes. The students do not have to go to the institutes that are far away, as they are given the study materials online. In the Online MBA programs, the students are asked to make assignment, and take examinations online which helps them concentrate on their studies well, and manage the time according to their needs.
The Online education programs do not only reduce the barriers between the institutions and the students sitting at home, but are also very cheap, thus saving money of the students. The Online MBA programs generally cost less than the regular MBA programs due to various factors.
Online MBA also provides the students with the benefits of earning while studying. As online education gives the opportunity to the students to study from home, this will allow the students to work while studying. Online MBA also gives its students the freedom to have access to the study material 24×7. It has the added advantage of flexible study timings which helps the students to cope up with the studies as and when they want to.
With the increase in popularity of the Online education programs, top B-schools like IGNOU, Symbiosis, Sikkim Manipal University, NMIMS, IMT, etc have come up with their courses of Online MBA, thus enabling the students to reap the benefits of the reputation of top B-schools of the country. The reputation of these institutes also helps the students in finding good jobs, as better job opportunities are offered seeing the reputation of the b-schools through which the students have studied.
So it is quite clear that people who pursue Online MBA also have as bright a future as the one’s pursuing regular MBA. Some people are of the opinion that Online MBA/correspondence MBA is not as valuable as the regular MBA which is false.
