pripripri SaysCan someone tell me if.....
-Two main monitoring bodies: DEC and UGC (I am leaving AICTE, AIU, etc out of this discussion, for now)
-DEC gives approval to the Distance Learning wings (DDE) of Universities (Univs)
-UGC accredits Univsre: Cases
-A Univ approved by DEC can run DDE for only
the State it is approved for, so if DEC has approved a Univ for an X State, the Univ can run its DDE course ONLY in the state of X.
-To my knowledge only
IGNOU is approved to run DDE thoughout India (PGites: Update if KSOU too is approved.
A Univ might have its approval revoked, because of expiry of validity or by a notification. DEC's approvals are not perpetual, it is renewable.re: Choosing your MBA
This decision is highly contextual, here are some factors to consider while deciding:-
Your plan for the future-
Will it help you do a Phd if you want to do it later (Very critical for overseas Visas)-
If you want to migrate or study overseas, then does the target country recognise the Course/Univ-
Will you use the Degree to advance within your current organisation. Is your current organisation a stable one. -
Will you need to use your DDE degree for a better job option.-
If you don't have a job, then do you know for sure
if Organisations have actually employed someone on the basis of the Degree/Cert you are targeting.-
Is your Work-experience aligned to the Certification/Degree/Specialization you are aiming for. Work-Ex is your kid. Never let it go
Do not base your current plan solely on past successes of others. Do factor in the change in circumstances and growing competition.-
Think laterally. Explore:
-Certificates like ISO Auditor Exam,
-Accounting Technician by ICAI,
-Company Secretary (CS) by ICSI
-MBA from IGNOU
-Short-term Management Development Campus-programs of IIMs/XLRI
-IIM/XLRI-programs conducted by HUGHES
-Distance Learning Certificates of Symbiosis, NMIMS, etc.
Finally, do not spend too much time (over)analysing: Plan, Enroll, Finish.
All the best.
