Regular MBA Vs EMBA, Distance Learning, Online, Weekend & Commonwealth MBA

MBA Executive (EMBA)
MBA Executive (EMBA) is a best option for professional and senior executives as in this program emphasis is given on practical aspects of business management. You will not taught basic concepts and theory as this program is designed for professionals only. Although many universities grant admission in EMBA program to the students with just 2 year experience, but we shall recommend you that after getting at least five years’ experience you should go for EMBA option. Remember that EMBA is just like part time M.B.A. You cannot hope to learn the business and management tricks in EMBA degree. Minhaj university is offering global executive MBA (EMBA) program. Its a practical program during which students start their own business with other class fellow for getting practical experience.

Distance Learning MBA
Distance learning MBA is a best option for the professionals of less than 5 years practical experience. AIOU and VU are most important distance learning universities in Pakistan which offer distance learning MBA programs. Now many regular universities like BZU, GCUF and Gomal University have also launched their distance learning programs including M.B.A.

Weekend MBA
Generally EMBA is called weekend MBA but now a days am seeing many ads of unfamiliar universities and colleges about weekend MBA program. I shall not recommend you think about this option as majority of these universities have doubtful charter status. Last year I saw a ad in newspaper about online MBA program. On my query I was told that if I have got the bachelor degree two years before, I will have to just pay the fee and I will be awarded MBA degree in two months. Spokesman of so-called university was asking me to deposit the half fee in advance. I cannot name the name of university of Islamabad as he might be bluffing by naming the name of a so-called prestigious university. Unfortunately in the regime of Musharraf so many universities were given charter. Number of master students who can bear the fees of private universities is much lower than the number of private universities, so these universities are attracting the students by unbelievable offers. Kindly beware of them.

Commonwealth MBA
It’s a distance learning program by AIOU and 100% acceptable and recognized as Commonwealth of UK is supporting it and AIOU is also a prestigious distance learning university of Pakistan.

Online MBA
After the axact scandal no normal student from Pakistan can even think to get admission in any online university. More than 90% of such online universities are diploma mills.

Regular MBA
There is no alternative of regular MBA as it can polish your hidden business administration and management skills. You can learn the basics from A to Z. Just take interest in this field as a talented M.B.A degree holder can rule the business world as an executive or businessman. The time has passed when only a businessman’s son could learn the tips of business. Now you can get the all the knowledge of human history about business administration and management science by taking interest in this field. Hard work of few years can make you a business and management genius. All successful businessmen of the world have share their experiences with the world. Essence of their experiences and proven business techniques and theories have been included in the syllabus of MBA.

Super Tips
1-I will not name the University of AJK whose MBA degree is not admitted in many banks of Pakistan due to its past record although now university have improved its standard a lot. So first tip is that you must get admission in HEC approved university only with good track record. We published the news about the fake and bogus campus of BZU Lahore in the mid of 2014 but now in the end of 2015 many students are protesting against this scam. There are many other universities and their sub campuses with suspected charter and affiliation status are working in Pakistan. You will have to very careful at the time of selection of university.

2-There is no need of getting admission in elite class universities as in the field of business administration and management your skills matter more than your university. Degrees of very costly university can win a job for you, but you will have to prove your abilities in the field for further progress in the career. So your emphasis must be on understanding the basic concepts and theories of business administration and management science.

3-Universities which demands GMAT for granting admission in Master in Business Administration are considered genuine universities.

4-Serious business students must go for BBA degree after intermediate. It will help them a lot in mastering the management techniques. BBA degree holders can get MBA degree in just 1 1/2 years.

5- Females must read our article “Scope of MBA & EMBA For Girls in Pakistan“.

6-Stay in touch with and its facebook page for guidance about all business administration and management degrees. This last tip is very important, just kidding.
