Hi,

It's me, Tanzy. Working as a software engineer.
Having three years of experince in IT industry with web development.
Worked on ecommerce and banking project.

Well, i did BTech in 2006. Already prepared for CAT in 2006-2007 but just able to secure 80 percentile in that.
So didn't go for this.

Now i want to do MBA.

My query is whether it's good to do MBA through correspondence?
Or should i wait and prepare for other colleges entrance exam to do live MBA?

Please tell me some good institution (for live and corespondence as well) and course to adopt as per the experience i am having.


Thanks,
Tanzy.

Hi Tanzy,

I think FullTime MBA is better than Correspondence MBA. Because company consider real and practical experience.

Ask your boss or the Human Resources folks at work, see if they thing a correspondence school is considered valuable.

I know that I would not. Or at least, not in general. There may be a few worldwide that are serious, but most seem to be more interested in taking your tuition and fee money than actually teaching you anything.

Plus, a significant portion of what you learn in Business School is done working in group projects. You simply can't do that without being on campus.

Sure you can. I went to graduate school (for technology) online and almost every class had group projects. The group came up with a time we could all be online at the same time. Interestingly, this was a good experience for learning how to work with remote offices and telecommuters.

The networking aspect of business school is harder to replicate. Especially if you live in a big city with a lot of "networking over beer" going on.

Showing my biases, I think the networking over beer, or at least face-to-face is critical. I'm not a big fan of the "all telecommuting, all the time" business model. I know, its popular these days. Some parts of human communication are non-verbal.
