People should not opt MBA/ PG Courses from these institutes (Distance mode)

Dear all,

Whether this is politics or trade or education, everything has become a business now and people have stopped following ethical practices even in education. Education also has become an industry now.
Well, many people have wrong opinion about Open Universities and distance learning which is not true at all. People think distance learning and open universities degree holders are less capable. Believe me, educational background or academic performance has nothing to do with an individual's capacity to be successful in a professional life. Yes, the degrees help them to understand the subject, gain knowledge and maturity at certain level.
Today many executives/ managers/ working professionals prefer to upgrade their educational qualification and knowledge and for this, the opt non conventional system of education such as e-learning, distance learning, correspondence courses.
The standard in awarding distance learning degree is not less than a conventional full time degree courses hence the people's myth that it is easier to pass distance learning degree is completely wrong. Let me illustrate this:
University of Mumbai
University of Mumbai offers degree in both distance mode and regular-full time campus mode. Only 5% of university of Mumbai colleges are of worth and rest all are rubbish and useless. The faculty doesn't have subject knowledge and practicality of the course (Whatever subject it may be- BE, MBA, BMS, B.Sc. IT and so on). For first year and second year of regular courses (like BA, B.Com, B.Sc.) college only conduct examination, issue certificates and only 3rd year (i.e. final year) examination happens through university. The affiliated colleges self prepare question papers, they self conduct examinations and they self issue marksheets. In this case 40% colleges are involved in malpractices. The quality of these college students are worst. In the name of college project, they take materials from internet like wikipedia, paste it and submit it. The useless faculty award them marks even without checking. Well now about syllabus. The college divide syllabus into 2 terms i.e. term 1 and term 2. Student need to learn pass pass half book (and still they remove few chapters and the teachers also don't want burden and those who are going for tuition get IMPs just day before of the exams). Whatever chapters have come in the first term do not come in the second terms.

Distance learning: If any student opt these degrees in distance learning mode from University of Mumbai, it is an ordeal for them. Reason, the whole book will come, they have to study the whole book, strict supervision at exam centres, strict valuation of papers.
Now you decide which student is better?

Well, I again come back to the main points. Does this mean many Diplomas/ Degrees/ MBAs awarded in distance learning mode are good and should student opt them and should corporate accept them?

My answer is strictly "NO". As I told, education has also become a business now and it is an industry. It is easy and lucrative business. Even many top ranked institutes are using their brand and offering many courses under distance learning mode. These courses are neither at par with an MBA degree nor it is valid for higher education.
I am providing the list here:

1. Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning (SCDL)
Symbiosis is a well known institute and one of the most reputed B schools in India. but my friends, this is only for their full time programmes. Symbiosis offer PGDBA, PGDHRM and many such programmes in the distance learning mode. Please note that nowhere in their advertisement and on their website they mention that their programme is not equivalent to an MBA degree and it is not valid for any job in public sector where MBA is a prerequisite. After doing PGDBA and any other such 2 years programme you are not eligible to pursue research degree. You are also not eligible for higher studies in India and abroad.
Their exam and evaluation system is also pathetic. They conduct online exam with multiple choice question. You have one question and 4 answers for the same. Whatever you feel appropriate, you can opt. Of course you will be given certificate only for correct answers but if you are little smart, by just a guess work you can complete the course.
I strongly believe that any professional course should have case study based examination system. Such type of Diploma will not increase anybody's efficiency either.
I have mail copy from SCDL where they have self declared that these programmes are not equivalent to MBA.

2. Welingkar Institute of Management
Like symbiosis, welingkar is also a well known institute but everything, their modus operandi, the exam pattern and rest other things is same like SCDL. Kindly read above reason only.


3. Balaji Institute of Modern Management, Pune
This is another institute in line. They claim that their qualifications/ diplomas are approved from DEC but they too don't mention that it is not equivalent to an MBA programme. They offer following programme:

PGDM,
PGDMM,
PGDFMMM,
PGDM&FM,
PGDHRM,
PGDP&MM,
PGDRM,
PGDSCM,
PGDS&MM


4. ITM, Kharghar
ITM is also a well known institute but again it is misusing its name. The Distance learning MBA programme from ITM is not approved from AICTE, it is not a university hence not eligible to award MBA degree or any degree. Again, their exam pattern is like 50% marks for internal assignment (They ask student to submit project report and presentation in group and student copy it from the net and submit to the institute. They finally get higher internal marks) rest 50% is covered through examination. No case study based approach. Degree is not valid for higher education and for job in India or abroad. Yes, if student take their assignment seriously, they can improve a lot in their presentation skills.

5. Sikkim Manipal University
This university offers lot of distance learning programme and I term it as a degree producing factory instead of terming them as university. University should impart real education and must not produce degree to earn money. This university offers online exam system again with the same system of 1 question and 4 multiple answer, select it, get pass, get the degree and most of the student without any upgradation of knowledge. How its BCA/ M.Tech/ B.Sc. IT and MBAs programme is useful when students are not equipped with the skill to handle real business problem? as an HR do we need to hire only degree holders? Of course not.

6. ICFAI
This institute tried to established itself as an university by using loophole in the Chhatisgarh Private University Act and then our honourable Supreme Court of India termed all universities established under this Act as unconstitutional. Then ICFAI established university in Tripura. Its exam pattern and motive is as same of ICFAI and charge more than 1 Lakh Rs for a distance learning MBA. Again, 1 question, 4 answer, get degree and go. Yes, its MBAs are approved and you can go for higher studies in India but I don't know when it will fall again if somebody will file petition in our honourable Supreme Court.

7. Amity University Distance learning MBA and other programmes
Kindly refer reason as given for ICFAI.


8. Indian Institute of Commerce and Trade
This is a fake institute and not recongized at all. Pay money and get your degree.

9. Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM)
One of the worst institute and one of the biggest educational scam in India, even if you are not a graduate you can get MBA from here (Do BBA from there, get 2 years experience and automatic get an MBA)
You can refer following link which is enough to explain why is this a fake institute.
http://www.iipmscam.com/

10. MIT School of Distance Education
Same as SCDL, Welingkar and BIMM

11. Don Bosco University, Assam, Assam Down Town University
Very soon, all these private universities will have fate of the same Chhatisgarh University (Private) so I strictly advised anybody to keep away themselves from it)

12.IIBM Institute of Business Management website http://www.iibmsixsigma.com/
This is a fake institute

13. ISBM (Indian School of Business and Management) website: http://www.isbm.org.in/Masters_PG.html
Fake institute

14. National Institute of Management (NIM)- spread across India
Website: http://site.nimonweb.com/html/nim-corr-courses.htm
A largest network of fake MBA degree. Pay money and get your degree. No need to give exam too. Solve questions at home and send them the answer and they will send you the degree.

15. Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS)- Distance Learning
it offers following courses
PBDBM PGDHRM PGDMM PGDFM PGDBFM PGDSCM PGDITM
but like SCDL and welingkar, nowhere it mention that their programme is not equivalent to an MBA degree. It is also encashing its brand name.

I am literally fed up and will add the list later. They all are bullshitting us. UGC says that franchising of education is not permissible and commercialisation of education is prohibited but everybody is doing it.Many universities including IGNOU and Pondicherry are giving franchisee (For example Karrox Technology) and earning moeny. The so called Distance Education is either blind or they have taken a lot of bribe and not taking any action against such institutes.

      You may opt this

      Apart from IITs, IIITs, NITs also offer Ph.D in external mode however you may need to spend at least a year in campus. If you are comfortable with this, you may opt any of these institutes.

      You may opt executive MBA from University of Madras where first year is a general management course and in project, you may choose environment management (frankly speaking environment management course cannot be an MBA course, its less business more technical)
      If you are from Maharashtra you may choose M.Sc. Environmental Science from YCMOU in distance mode or else opt Bharthiar University

      While I respect your opinions, I do not think anybody in their right mind would pick SCDL over Bharati Vidyapeeth.

      I am a Symbiosis alumnus (I earned my bachelor's degree in 2013 and am now going to enroll in one of their residential MBA programs). I know for a fact that Symbiosis has a solid reputation which far outstrips that of Bharati Vidyapeeth. The latter is pathetic.

      I believe SCDL is accredited by the DEC.

    5. @Ajay Varma: For corporate world, the promotion purely depend on your performance, the additional distance MBA does not specifically help for promotion alone. However, if the organsiation has condition that to promote someone at next level, an MBA is mandatory then it may help.

  13. Hi Govind,

    First I would like to thank for putting all the valuable info in this blog. It's really helpful.

    I am looking for some advice here. I have completed 3 year Diploma in Computer Science (after my 10+2). I got a good job immediately after the Diploma because of IT boom in India. After working 5-6 years I started realising the need to have MBA degree to get higher position in organisation. There were not many options available as I am not having bachelor degree. I decided to go with PGDBA from SCDL as they are allowing Diploma holders with 5+ year of experience. So I completed it but as you rightly mentioned above that it neither provide the corporate value nor academic.

    Now I am thinking of doing MBA from reputed institute from India or abroad. As I am not having bachelor degree so again option are very limited. I am thinking of doing a BBA from distance learning first and then look for an MBA. I have kind of sort listed Amity, ICFAI and SMU for BBA but after reading reading you blog needs to reconsider my options here.

    I am also not sure if all the reputed institute in India or abroad consider the bachelor degree from distance learning. Again in US they consider the 4 year bachelor degree so not sure how BBA will be helpful here as it's 3 year degree.


    I am also thinking of doing online BBA from US so that I will get 4 year degree and will help to pursue the MBA from reputed institute later. But this option looks very expensive.

    Pls advice what are the best options for me here . Thanks in advance for your help here.

    Regards
    Ajay

    1. Hi Ajay,
      Sorry for replying you late.
      US, Australia accept 4 years BS degree or 4 years equivalent qualification. Since you are already 10+2 and have a 3 years Diploma, I do not think you should face problem.
      You may choose
      BCA lateral entry into 2nd year from Madurai Kamraj University which allow you to complete degree in two years
      Else, you may opt BBA from Bharti Vidyapeeth if you are from Delhi, Pune and Mumbai. Most US universities prefer NAAC A grade university so it helps you. You may also look into BBA with computer application from Annamalai University or BBA from University of Madras.

      If you are looking for a full time MBA, you may look good institutes in UK who accept a candidate with corporate experience but without a bachelor's degree (It is termed as a matured entry).

      Do not opt KSOU. It is already under lot of controversy. Quality Management is not a specific management programme and very few institute offer this as a specialization for MBA. You may also check for MBA Operations Management. Check with University of Madras it has centre in Kolkata

      Yes, for admission in any universities from Andhra and Telangana ICET is mandatory
      You may check with University of Madras, it has exam centre in hyderabad and there is no entrance exam and approved by DEB but you should attend all exam at Madras only just attend practicals at hyderabad for safer side

      IGNOU cannot have NAAC grade as NAAC accredited only conventional universities but yes, quality wise it is A grade

  52. Hi Govind,

    I've been reading this blog and I must say that you are doing a Great job by providing information to everyone out there.....just keep up the good work!!!

    I left my studies 12yrs back when I was in S.YBcom (Mumbai University). I had a.t.k.t in both 1st and 2nd year hence I couldn't get admission for T.Y. Now after all these years I wish to complete my graduation.

    I have the following questions:

    1) I've heard that Annamalai University allows a student to give all the 3 year exams (F.Y + S.Y + T.Y = 15 papers), together in one sitting......is it true?

    2) Is Annamalai graduate degree valid for jobs in the Middle East? Bcoz just a couple of days back I had read that the Abu Dhabi Higher Education Council has issued a notice stating that it will not recognise the Madurai Kamaraj University degree. This is quite a big surprise as MKU is a very well recognised univ! I hope it's not the same for Annamalai as well.

    3) I left my studies coz i was very weak in accountancy & economics which are the backbone of commerce studies. So on the basis of my 1st & 2nd year bcom mark sheets and my 12 year gap, can u suggest any good distance education university and course where i can be eligible for lateral entry directly in the 3rd year? I am ready to appear for all the 3 year papers (15 papers) together. The reason for this is that i want to attain a degree at the earliest (in just one year) rather than waiting and studying for three years.

    Shall appreciate your reply,

    Best Regards
    RJ

    1. Hi,
      If you have ATKT then even at Annamalai University, you have to appear for all the subject of FY, SY and TY B.Com
      Better you should clear your ATKT of 2nd year and 1st year from Mumbai University this OCtober and then apply for a TY from mumbai University only.
      In TY B.Com you can skip accounts subject and may opt Business management with following subjects
      Business Management Group
      I Management and Organizational Development – Paper I
      II Financial Management Paper II
      III Marketing Management Paper III
      (Study Material Available in English and Marathi)
      4. Applied Component Group (Any two of the following)
      I Export Marketing (Study Material Available in English and Marathi)

      III Trade Unionism and Industrial Relations

Including airfare and other cost, it may come within INR 100000 i.e. around 1500 USD. You do not need to come down for interview, you may apply oneline. visit pondiuni.edu.in

      You may also opt Open University of Hong Kong
      Eligibility
      A recognized degree, or equivalent professional qualification, in a business-related area, or a qualification equivalent to the OUHK'S PCBA.

      Madurai Kamraj and other universities in Tamil Nadu are not authorised to offer course outside the state and UGC has asked them to stop offering course. If you are not worried about government recognition, you may go, but I do not advise as MKU is not good in quality too

  83. Hi Sir,

    I wanted to pursue MBA through distance learning and i have shortlisted two colleges for the same namely, NMIMS-SDL PG Diploma in Banking & Finance and Bharati Vidyapeeth MBA degree in Finance Management. I verified that NMIMS-SDL is approved by UGC-AICTE-DEC but the membership of AIU is given to the parent body, NMIMS University. So, can u please guide me as to whether AIU taken by the parent body, NMIMS University will also be applicable for NMIMS-SDL and can you please suggest me as to which college i may join as i wanted to work in public sector in future.

    1. NMIMS PG Diplomas are not MBA and NMIMS itself does not accept these PG diplomas for higher studies in its own university. Don't opt that
      instead, you may opt their executive MBA. It is module based programme and you may complete it from 15 months to 4 years time. Course fee is around 4.5 lakhs
      A part time MBA has more value than a distance MBA and it does not require DEB approval. NMIMS has AICTE approval
      Bharati Vidyapeeth has not got approval from DEB for current year

    1. Hi,
      As of now, only Pondicherry University as an option for you as none of the university in Karnataka has authorisation to offer MBA in distance mode.
      IGNOU is also good, quality wise better than Pondicherry but problem is private employers have prejudices against a private university

      You may also look for executive MBA from NMIMS and SIBM they are good in quality

    1. No, as per AICTE guideline, minimum 50% mark in graduation is must for full time MBA. You may start doing job and then can do an executive/ part time MBA where minimum percentage is not mandatory

  86. Hello Sir,
    I had completed my 10th and 3 Year full time diploma in Computer Technology from Mumbai (Department of technical Education). Because of some financial & family reason, I had unable to continue my education. After diploma result immediately I got job in IT firm. Now I have around 18 year experience. In between I tried to complete my graduation from IGNOU BCA. But that also not completed. So finally I completed same BCA graduation from YCMOU ( Year 2013 to 2015) and waiting for final marksheet & certificate.
    In current organization my job is like management staff (Like Manager). So I need some kind of certification or master in business management in IT or similar field. So I am searching genuine distance education institute or university within or near to mumbai. Because i can't leave or shift the job. I sorted Bharati Vidyapeeth Distance Education, YCMOU and IGNOU . But both YCMOU and IGNOU does not provide MBA in IT related field.

    So request you please guid me and suggest any way to complete MBA from genuine distance education institute or university

    Thaks for kind Help,
    Prashant

    1. Difficult to answer your query as you have not specified from which institute you had done your B.Sc.
      The institute must be a central university or a state university or a UGC approved private or deemed university
      For more info please visit ugc.ac.in and check whether your institute name is in the list

  88. Hello Sir,
    I have some queries related to Distance MBA. I have read your blogs; it’s very informative for readers. But still I want to know about Distance MBA and related to my career.
    I am Prashant Desai and had completed 3 years full time Technical Diploma in Computer Technology from Mumbai conducted by Board of Technical Education of Maharashtra (Year 1997).
    Due to some family & financial issues I cannot continue my education and joined one IT firm, immediately after diploma result. Now I have 18 years of experience in same IT firm, also got growth in position. To complete my graduation, in between in year 2000 to 2004 I had try in BCA from IGNOU. But along with job and because strict rules/regulation of IGNOU, I was failed to complete the BCA within time. Finally i have completed BCA from YCMOU this year 2015 (In distance education mode).
    Currently my job profile is like management kind of work. So to achieve a certain position in company or to apply for job in another company, I need some extra qualification like MCA or MBA. I also cleared ATMA MBA entrance exam by 67.82 percentile. I have shortlisted some universities/institute to do MBA in distance education mode like Bharati Vidyapeeth, IGNOU, YCMOU, NMIMS, Welingkar. Because full time or part mode is not suitable for my work time so i need distance education mode only.
    Request you to please suggest & guide me for above mentioned condition or suggest if any other way. Thanks for kind help.
    Prashant Desai

    I have done my graduation from Mumbai University in 2008. I am from the field of Gems and Jewelry. I am also a Graduate Gemologist from GIA, Carlsbad, USA. Currently I am working in US. I am interested in doing distance post graduation related to operations and my field. i ma looking for something which allows me to give exams online here in US as work restricts me from coming to India. Kindly guide me through.

    I was planning to do PGDM - Operations Management and then dual specialization in Supply Chain Management or International Business Management from Welingkar.

    As I know that if the college is recognized, it will help in future... so I looked for PGDORM from Mumbai University. This needs me coming to India for exams which i might have to do it.

    Kindly guide me through.

    Thanks.
