Which Is Better, Distance MBA Between IGNOU & Symbiosis?
Are you a busy working professional? Are you interested in improving your CV but feel constrained by your budget and time? Long-distance MBAs are designed specifically with you in mind. There is a wide variety of learning institutions , you can choose from including NMIMS SDL, IMT-CDL, AIMA -CME, and SMU – DE but IGNOU and Symbiosis stand out.
Before you decide on IGNOU or Symbiosis, I will give you a couple of considerations to have in mind. The first difference between them is that IGNOU is government-run while Symbiosis is a Private Institution . If you are eying a job in the public sector then IGNOU would be a better choice than Symbiosis.
This is not to say that graduates from Symbiosis don’t stand a chance in government positions. Even if it were so, opportunities abound in the Indian private sector. The Symbiosis learning curriculum incorporates a blended learning methodology that employs the use of digital distance learning materials, virtual classrooms, and chat sessions.
You can consider eligibility criteria for admission into IGNOU when compared to Symbiosis as a way of deciding which is better. Admission into IGNOU requires a minimum of 50% in undergraduate studies for general candidates or 45% for candidates with at least 3 years of managerial experience. Admission into Symbiosis only requires an undergraduate degree.
The eligibility differences mean that Symbiosis is preferable if your undergraduate scores are below 45%. The same cannot be said for IGNOU which restricts admission to the above-mentioned requirements. In terms of admission fee, IGNOU’s is Rs 30,000  while Symbiosis requires Rs 35, 000 for admission. Here, IGNOU has an edge over Symbiosis purely from a budgetary standpoint.
