    Can an individual get enrolled in the business school of IIM A for MBA through distance learning also?

    My name is Chirag Doshi and I am a final year student in Commerce stream. I aspire to pursue MBA however with family responsibilities; I might not be able to join a regular course. Can I join IIM A for correspondence or distance learning MBA course? I can prepare for CAT but giving full time to MBA might not be possible. Please help.

    Hello Chirag. I really admire your passion for higher studies. Well, unfortunately such distance learning program for MBA is not provided in IIM A. In case you want to pursue this course from this particular business school then it is essential for you to go there and study.

    This will also happen once you get good scores in your CAT and they select you for next rounds. However, there is nothing to worry about as there are many other business schools in India providing distance learning education for MBA to candidates like you. The one which is the most popular one is Symbiosis School of Distance Learning. Here you get to choose from a wide range of MBA programs in form of PG programmes.

    Re: Can an individual get enrolled in the business school of IIM A for MBA through distance learning also?

    Hi Chirag,
    Its good to hear your choice of IIM-A to do MBA. Ofcourse IIM-A is the best place in India to do MBA. But in IIM-A MBA course is Regular and they do not allow MBA through Part-time. If you wanna join in IIM-A, you need to take up CAT entrance exam and join in Full-time MBA course.
    But do not worry, there are few institutions in India offering part time MBA. You can join in some Institute and complete your course. Even Part-time MBA is good and fetch you good jobs.

    All the best

    IIM Ahmedabad offers regular full time two year programme in management,PGPM;two year PG Programme in agri business management;fellow programme in management and one year programme in management for executives.Thus it doesnot offer any programme through distance learning.
    But all options doesnot end there.There is no dearth of opportunities for hardworking and deserving students.You can do equally well in life while pursuing MBA from any other institute as well.There are number of universities and colleges offering distance mode MBA to students like Symbiosis Pune,Sikkim Manipal University,IMT ghaziabad.The IIM tagline only will not determine your success in life.
    So all the very best for your bright future.

    Re: Can an individual get enrolled in the business school of IIM A for MBA through distance learning also?

    Hello,
    It really feel nice hearing that you understand your responsibility towards your family and at the same time you are dedicated towards pursuing higher education. But you need not to worry because at the same time you will gain some experience through distance MBA and on other hand you will learn. So it is a learning from one end and earning from other end.

    Yes it is possible to do MBA distance course through IIM's. There are three IIM which are providing the same course i.e. distance MBA. These IIM's are-

    1) IIM-Bangalore
    2) IIM-Calcutta
    3) IIM-Kozhikode

    As far as IIM-A is concerned,there is no such distance MBA, so it is not possible in this case. However there are many good institutes in India which are known for their qualitative education and provides distance MBA such as ICFAI university, symbiosis centre for distance learning etc.

    So you have a great opportunities to choose MBA distance course from such colleges as they are known for their qualitative education in MBA only and has a huge wide repertoire. so go for it.........

    Thank you

However, there's nothing to fret concerning as there area unit several alternative business colleges in Asian nation providing distance learning education for master's degree to candidates such as you. The one that is that the most well-liked one is interdependence faculty of Distance Learning. Here you get to settle on from a good vary of master's degree programs in kind of PG programmes.

    Re: Can an individual get enrolled in the business school of IIM A for MBA through distance learning also?

    Good day Chirag. I actually adore the love for better studies. Perfectly, sadly these online education application regarding MBA isn't provided within IIM A. For those who like for you to engage in this product out of this special company university then it's essential so you might go there and study.

    That may even take place the moment you will get great ratings with your CAT they usually select people regarding upcoming rounds. Having said that, there is nothing to worry about as there are a great many other company educational facilities within India providing online education schooling regarding MBA for you to prospects just like you. One which is the most widely used an example may be Symbiosis Education with Distance Learning. Right here you're able to select an array of MBA applications within method of PG programmes.
    IIM Ahmedabad offers standard full time two year process within control,PGPM;two year PG Process within agri company control;many other process within control and 12 months process within control regarding executives.Thus the idea doesnot provide just about any process by mileage learning.
    But most selections doesnot end there.There isn't any shortage with opportunities regarding hardworking and deserving students.You are capable of doing just as well in life when subsequent MBA in the different start because well.There are volume of colleges and schools supplying mileage mode MBA for you to learners just like Symbiosis Pune,Sikkim Manipal Higher education,IMT ghaziabad.The IIM tagline simply won't determine your ability to succeed within life.
    So all the top for ones brilliant future.
    That sense wonderful experiencing that you recognize the liability in direction of your household and simultaneously that you are devoted in direction of subsequent better education. But you don't need to that will mainly because simultaneously you'll attain a few expertise by mileage MBA in addition, on other hand you'll learn. Therefore it is any gaining knowledge through a person end and generating off their end.

    Sure you possibly can perform MBA mileage training course by IIM's. You will find about three IIM which in turn offer the exact same training course i.e. mileage MBA. These IIM's are-

    1) IIM-Bangalore
    2) IIM-Calcutta
    3) IIM-Kozhikode

    Where IIM-A is involved,there's no these mileage MBA, making it difficult within this case. Having said that there are various great institutes within India which in turn provide qualitative schooling and offers mileage MBA just like ICFAI higher education, symbiosis centre regarding online education etc.

    Consequently you have a great opportunities to pick MBA mileage training course coming from these schools since they provide qualitative schooling within MBA simply and it has a tremendous vast repertoire. thus choose it.
