Hi, this is Deepak Bhandari, I also did MBA from IGNOU, there is entrance exam called OPENMAT for qualifying the MBA course from IGNOU, duration is 03 years, entrance exams held twice in a year i.e. Feb. & Aug., but forms accepted only thirty to sixty days before the exams as far as fees is concerned student have to complete 21 courses each course fees is Rs. 700/-.
This year I suppose application forms will accepted upto Nov.'08 last without late fees for entrance exams which is to be held in Feb. for more details you can log on to <link outdated-removed>
Hope this information will work for you.

According to me I feel doing MBA in IGNOU is not advisable, Those people will not let u complete the course. The evaluation is very tough. A person like u working for 6 days is very difficult to complete it. Instead of IGNOU you can try ANNA University or Bharathidasan university. They r very much reputed universities and also u can complete your course... Anyway decision is yours.

If at all I am concerned there is value of IIM, OXFORD, XLRI and many other top business schools but still for distance learning I found IGNOU best, there course material really work at your workplace, you can refer there question papers for the same and compare it from other institutes, I also did my MBA in HR from IGNOU in 2007, while working for 6 days in a week, and you must note that students who have zeal to achieve there goals can set any targets for them.
See decision is yours first choose your preference regular or correspondance if correspondance then go for IGNOU or Symbosis. Choice is yours dear.

I am pursuing MBA from IGNOU in HR stream and I have found that MBA from IGNOU is more valid than any other university degree. The subjects are more practical and useful in day to day applications. But at the same time they are quite tough too. It requires good preparation.
If you are looking only for degree than you can even pursue from Symbiosis.
Its your choice.

IGNOU will give you the degree but Symbiosis thru distance mode gives only PG Diploma courses in various streams like Marketing,HR etc..& njot MBA degree.
Yes u need to submit the experience once u have qualified in OPENMAT(entrance exam of IGNOU). There is a standard format for this it is quite simple u need not worry.

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, now choice is yours.
Have a very nice day.

I am planning on joining IGNOU MBA. I work in Doha but wish to pursue the MBA course from a IGNOU center in India. I can come down every 6 months to write the exams. However, I was told that I may have problem regarding the project work in the 3rd year. Can some one please clarify regarding the projects? Is my presence in India necessary during the project period or can I do it in Doha and come down to India for submission and other formalities?
Thanks in anticipation..
