Re: required information about MBA correspondence at ICFAI


Hi everybody

I m doing MBA from ICFAI by Distance Learning. They take lot of money 70,000+ Examination Fees of Rs 1000 per group + Rs 12,000 Tution Fees+ placement + etc... It will cost u above 1 lakh. and its not easy

Their r 11 groups. 4 subjects per group. i.e. total 42+ papers. Its objective. 5 options per question. 3 hour paper. its not easy. course material is good.

choose symbiosis instead. its more reputed. much much easier than icfai, much cheaper (only 30 k including everything). only 24 papers of 1 Hr paper. they give PGDBM degree. yes, but u know IIMs also give PGDBM NOT MBA. But everyone calls it MBA and write same in their CV so it practically MBA.

I know about 4 options of mba frm Distance Learning
1.http://www.scdl.net : official site of symbiosis center for distance learning. there is also a sample paper ! of M. Accounting
2. National Institute of Business Management (NIBM) : AG, Anandraj Villa, (AU), 7, Second Canal Cross Road, Gandhi Nagar, Adyar
Chennai,Tamil Nadu see http://www.admissionnews.com/collegedetails.aspx?colid=14763
3.www.icfai.org : this is ICFAI Website
4. there is also a mba [Distance Learning] by sikkim manipal. it costs around rs 52,000.
they all send free prospectus.
my conclusion: dont go 4 ICFAI mba. its not worth the money & efffort u spend. choose symbiosis instead. yet its course material is good. its good if u want MBA degree with lot of effort.
i m writing all this becoz i took a wrong decision by choosing icfai and i trying to reduce my frustation. u may contact me prashant0084gmail.com

if u find more useful information about mba institutes kindly send me on prashant0084gmail.com
. so more people can benefit from your findings


if u have less time to study choose symbiosis instead. its much much easier than icfai, much cheaper (only 30 k including everything). only 24 papers of 1 Hr paper. But they give PGDBM degree not MBA. yes, But u know IIMs also give PGDBM NOT MBA. But everyone calls it MBA and write same in their CV so it practically MBA.

I m doing MBA from ICFAI by ICFAI Flexible Learning Program (IFLP). Icfai says IFLP is not Distance Learning and in the degree there will be no mention of word "correspondence" or "Distance learning". means it is virtually REGULAR MBA for u. icfai course material is very good. exam pattern is also good

But they take lot of money 70,000+ Examination Fees of Rs 1000 per group + Rs 12,000 Tution Fees+ placement + etc... It will cost u above 1 lakh. Its not easy. But its easier than regular mba from any other place .icfai is good if u want MBA degree with lot of effort. u can also do mca from icfai

Their r total 11 groups. 2 subjects per group. each subject has 2 papers of 3 hours. Up to group F (5th) all papers all fully objective. each question has 5 lengthy options. 2 groups are elective. i.e. total 42+ papers. its not easy, but if u study u can get through it. course material is good. see http://www.iutripura.edu.in for more info. If u want to go by Flexible Learning see http://www.iutripura.edu.in/flexibleprograms.asp

But u have to check weather icfai university, Tripura OR Dehradoon can give degree all over India. Currently I have sent letters which question Legality of degree courses offered by ICFAI to UGC,DEC and ICFAI. I think u should wait till i get replies of these letters.

ICFAI HAS 3 mainly BRANCHES :ICFAI Flexible Learning ProgramINC (ICFAI National College), - total 169 in IndiaIBS (ICFAI Business School), - total 18 in IndiaIts fees are one of the highest in country [IBS 6 to 10 Lakhs, INC 3 to 5 Lakhs, IFLP .8 -1.5 lakh] and they definitely makes thousands of crores of profit every year.

my conclusion: if u want easy mba choose symbiosis.

i m frustated becoz i wanted the easiest mba like symbiosis. and i choosed the quite difficult one (icfai)

Hi,

No doubt, ICFAI syllabus is quite good. But before you make any decesion make sure that you should also focus on other options like Symbiosis, Narsee Monjee, IMT etc.

You can also go for programs from IIM's in collaboration with NIIT Imperia & Hughes. All these Programs require 3-5 years of work exp to meet the eligibility criteria.

Please visit: www.niitimperia.com & www.dwge.com for more details.

Well, It is always be a better option to do MBA full time. This would definitely help you to shape up your career. If possible prepare for CAT/XAT/MAT/GMAT exams.

Kindly suggest which is the better option.
