What is an online MBA?
The word online MBA is self-explanatory, online here is the mode of education. The lectures are either pre-recorded or the university conducts the live interactive sessions.
The curriculum and structure are designed to match on-campus programs as much as possible.
Why Online MBA?
With little comparison, you are going to understand why you should consider an online MBA.
Fee structure: The fee structure of on-campus programs offered by the same university is 80%- 90% higher in comparison to their online programs.
Brand value: Do you know your degree will have the same accreditation as the regular program? Yes, you heard that right. NMIMS online MBA has been recognized by UGC (University Grant Commission), DEB (Distance Education Bureau), WES(World Education Services). It also has a NAAC A+ ranking. Accreditation is given to a university, not a particular course.
Networking: Would I be able to network with like-minded people? Isn't it one of the reasons to not consider an online MBA? I know you are concerned about peer interaction, but networking is a skill, and if you have it already then why worry? I understand building relationships online is tough but it isn't impossible. When you enroll for brands like NMIMS, you ensure to form a network of like-minded peers through interactive live sessions and social media groups.
Faculty: How would you react if I told you the faculty for an online MBA are the same as the ones for an on-campus MBA. Surprised! Getting to be taught by the top faculty is a worth it deal.
Travel cost: Hey! It's all online, so no travel either and that’s another few bucks added to your pocket.
No relocation: You wouldn't have to relocate either, you can spend time with your loved ones. What else would one want?
Time-saving: You save a lot of time that you can utilize otherwise.
P.S: Time is money :)
