Scope for Distance Learning in the Post-Pandemic World

For those who aspire to control the world, education is the hand that rocks the cradle.

Prior to the epidemic, brick-and-mortar learning institutions were preferred over online degrees. However, the outbreak of the epidemic has confined everyone to their homes, increasing the appeal of online learning.

‘Is the degree valid?’, ‘Will I get a job if I have an online degree?’, ‘Will I be able to work abroad?’, and ‘Is the degree acknowledged internationally?’  are just a few of the key questions that these online degrees raise.

Let’s take a look at these issues to clear things out once and for all.

Is it possible to earn a degree online? – Yes, it is correct. Yes, it is.

It’s understandable that such a worry arises because the tangible part of online degrees is limited, increasing the possibility of manipulation. However, there are accreditation bodies that issue a certificate stating that the degree is genuine and that the company/institution has completed all of the requirements and meets all of the characteristics.

NGASCE NMIMS is one such university, approved & recognised by University Grants Commission (UGC) & the Distance Education Bureau (UGC-DEB) of India. In 2018, we were granted Autonomy Category I by UGC  (University Grants Commission), thereby giving us a blanket approval to offer programs through open & distance learning modes. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council have accredited us with Grade A+ in its 3rd cycle of assessment in 2018, which signifies the highest standards of academic leadership.

Other than NGASCE NMIMS, there are certain MBA colleges and programs  that we have selected as the best Distance MBA University and Colleges in India
