    Re: Is IGNOU good for MBA?

    It is ideal to join a 2 year full time mba course. But since you are a working professional part time mba is fine. IGNOU courses are considered good for pursuing a managerial career line in India. If you are already doing it, then fine.

    However it is not highly recommended, if you are looking at having specialization in areas like HR. So you want to specialise in a specific area like HR you could look for more premier institutes like XLRI, Symbiosis which offer distance learning courses for working professionals. You only need to go and attend some contact classes in the institute, rest of the things can be done from your location through web conferencing facility. So if you are really looking at enhancing your career and get into some reputed firm, may be you need to get your MBA from such a top institute.

    Indira Gandhi National Open University or IGNOU is the resource centre for open and distance learning in India. IGNOU has its presence established in India and in different parts of the world through its study centers. IGNOU provides quality learning to millions of students and working professionals across the globe. Though it is not accepted by many foreign universities, it is quite accepted in the Indian industry. The IGNOU School of Management Studies conducts an entrance exam called OPENMAT twice a year. By passing this examination a person can get admission into the MBA program offered by the university.

    Flexibility in course administration, continuous evaluation and focus on assignments rather than exams make most of the employees to choose MBA from IGNOU. Students are given extensive project work which helps to learn and gain knowledge and also they can relate concepts to what they are working on. Students are evaluated in the form of tutor--marked and computer-marked assignment, projects, term-end examination. IGNOU provides study materials online or they deliver the materials by post. Students, especially working guys will find it very easy, as they donít have to go and collect the materials. Thus pursuing MBA from IGNOU is a good option especially for those who work.

    IGNOU is a open university and its good to do MBA from there.But as you are looking for HR specialization I would suggest you to go for XLRI. Its one of the top rated and reputed.Besides MBA course requires practical training and group projects.So its better to go for full time MBA course.You can also apply for executive MBA.

    One of the significant and prestigious institutions in the country offering good quality MBA education is Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU).

    Ignou is otherwise good but for MBA try for symboisis as its MBA programmes are really good.
    I personally know few people who have completed their MBA from Symboisis and are currently working at good places.

    In my opinion doing M.B.A. from IGNOU could be the best option. the study material provided by it is upto mark. As per M.B.A. degree is concerned, university brand is helpful by the time of your initial placement. If you are a working professional, the knowledge capital achieved by you will only be helpful, irrespective of which open university you have opted. any way have information to get admission.
