If any of you is planning to pursue any course from SCDL (Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning), Pune, that will be one of the biggest blunders of your life.

I have somehow just completed my PGDIT form SCDL and found it worthless and pathetic. You will face many problems with their online services. Mails are never ever answered. You will die calling up them but no one picks up the phone calls to answer your queries.

Some more facts about SCDL:

1. Everyone and anyone does the course- its admission criteria is very low, so an employer does not look at you with high regard.
2. Your market value does not increase, as it has been seen that no one learns or benefits from this course.
3. If you were to work full time, you will learn much more in your job.
4. Although senior professionals in the field have written the course books, the language is so terrible, that the entire meanings of sentences often change because of that.
5. The assignments and exams test your english language more than your subject knowledge.
6. The questions are also in incorrect english, which change the meaning of the question, and therefore the answer.
7. The exams are no better with the similar points of 6. & 7. repeated.
8. In the exam I was actually asked the following question:
"Teams are sometimes shady":
True ___
False ___

Some of the assignment questions:
Question Organising does not facilitate smooth functioning of the organisation.
Correct Answer False

Question Collective bargaining primarily used for how many purposes?
Correct Answer 2

What are you trying to judge in these questions?!?!
Can you believe asking such sesnseless questions in a post graduate exam? or a "so-called MBA?".

9. They are not equipped enough to handle an e-learning course.
10. I wanted to give my online assignments for practice before my exam, and the system kept giving a message - "the system is busy just now. Please try after sometime". I tried at 1:00 a.m, 6:00 a.m, 11.m, and through the day, and it gave me the same error for 5 days. When I called them, they said- give your assigment in July, (my exam was in JUne), as the system is busy. If they are unable to afford a server that cannot handle such kind of load, they should not have an e-learning programme.
10. The week of my exam, the site refused towork, and I couldn't print my admit card. They told me- "u should have printed it earlier". Again, what is the use of having your admit card online, if you have to be at the mercy of their site working?!
11. THe site is down for maintanence from 2- 5p.m every wednesday. Who shuts their site down in the middle of the week?! Not only that, from my experience the site is usually down fr over 8-10 hours on every wednesday.
12. At this point of time, I am embarassed to write this course on my resume, as I feel an employer will think of me as stupid, and not smart.

Amit

hi the fees for PGDBA last year was 14000 per year. you have to pay that in installments as 8000 and than 6000. So the 2 yrs program cost Rs. 28000.

The fees for Certificate course i.e CRM is Rs. 7000 which is of 6th months.



All the best.
