The survey results from Synovate, an agency commissioned by BusinessWorld, to rate and rank India’s best business schools that offer distance education says  WeSchool at the Second post

The different parameters used by Synovate to conduct the survey were experience/year of inception, affiliations, full-time courses offered, Option of on-line admissions, IT infrastructure, study centers and foreign collaborations.

WeSchool started the Distance Education programs way back in 1977, initially with short term programs of six months and one year duration. From 2005, the institute added the Post Graduate Diploma programs of two years duration in various management streams.

WeSchool offers a PGDBA program of two years of duration which is really popular with students who cannot spare the time to attend regular lectures because of their career pressures. An exclusive feature of Welingkar PGDBA-DLP is an array of specializations available in the second year. The institute offers Ten specializations like Marketing, Finance, HR, Operations, Supply chain, Banking etc. These specializations are updated keeping  in view  the new dynamics of the industry, a prospective professional should be updated with e.g. , HR has subjects like Recruitment management, International HRM etc. or Marketing has subjects like Customer centric organization .

The other courses like Diploma in Business Management, Marketing, Materials Management, Human Resource, Financial Management, Industrial Management, Advertising and PR, Tax Management, Export-Import, Entrepreneurship Management vary from one year Diplomas to six months certificate courses.

While expressing his thoughts about the new rankings,Dr Uday Salunkhe,Group Director, WeSchool  said,” Distance learning programs are offered by various institutes and universities but  WeSchool tries to provide a holistic experience to Distance learning students by providing books for all subjects, CDs, learning content, virtual class room lectures, industry visits, video library and placement support. Apart from this, experiential learning workshops are conducted and technology is used to the extent possible to remain in constant touch with the students of WeSchool.  The distance education courses are therefore actually as advantageous, when compared to full time classroom environment . Students choose distance learning courses for a variety of reasons. Many want to further their formal learning to remain competitive in the marketplace and enhance their career opportunities but do not want to interrupt their employment or earning power to return to university on a full-time basis.  They have come back to school because they want and need new ways of looking at things outside of their competencies.  . Many of them are there to reflect on their experiences, to see them in a broader perspective which they need to cope with today’s rapidly changing business environment”

The surveys have become important decision making tools for students and their parents who have to decide between the several schools that the student has managed to get admission into.
