    This is the worst decision I have ever heard of !you have 12 years of experience ,why are you even thinking about the distant MBA which is a complete waste of time for a professional like you ,yes ,you are eligible for it but ,why not to go for the EXECUTIVE MBA ..you would have such a strong point of your experience while getting admission ….
    If you are worried about loosing your job ,let me tell you that many of the indian institutions offer a Friday-through-Saturday weekend sessions for providing executive MBA .The fee is very less ,even the duration is about one year in most of the institutions including the IIM’s…
    You just need to fulfill some eligibility criteria like
    For Self Employed professionals - IT Return + MOA & AOA or Trade License or Partnership Deed is mandatory.
    For other working professionals - Salary Slip (current period) + all joining & relieving letters (if applicable) is mandatory.

    Desired Proficiencies in the Candidate (in addition to the Eligibility Criteria) –
    Proficiency in English since it would be the medium of instruction.
    Basic numerical ability and mathematical skills - including Algebra (eg. Equation of Straight Line), Basic Differential & Integral Calculus and Ability to Interpret Graphs.
    Ability to reason logically
    General awareness – including knowledge of Industry

    Besides this,you can get letters of recommendation from your seniorsin companies you have worked for …. This can be an extra benefit providing in getting admission to executive MBA !

    Hi, take a look a t the programmes the Open University have to offer. They are flexible but full of information you would find useful even after 12 years in the industry. If you still have to maintain a work life and don't have the luxury to take time off then a distance MBA could be just what's right for you.
