Does doing distance MBA make sense?

Before thinking about where you want to do your distance MBA from, a more important question that you need to answer for yourself is why do you want to do an MBA? If its for learning then you can learn by reading books in any case so no real point in spending money over a degree. If you want to do an MBA to get a job then a full-time MBA is what you should be looking at. However, full time MBA degrees can be very expensive and it may not be possible for everyone to invest the time and money towards a full time degree. In that case, a part-time degree/ distance education is your best bet. While you can find multiple links to compare distance learning MBA degrees in India which may be good to start evaluating but a rule of thumb that you should always follow is that a degree is as good as the institute it is from. All the top 10 B-schools in India offer a part-time MBA either directly or through study partners. Those would always be my first preference.
