    Technically there is a major difference between the distance learning MBA/distance education MBA and correspondence MBA. Correspondence MBA is the traditional form of providing distance learning. It involves sending the study material prepared by an MBA college to a candidate through post and depends completely upon self study. The objective of correspondence MBA initially was to be cost effective and exclude the hassle of classroom learning. However, with technological advancement distance learning came into the picture which included many added features other than posting the study material. Distance learning MBA programs also make use of multi media facilities, these being audio-video, internet and satellite communication to conduct lectures, hold conferences, take viva and create a sort of virtual college environment. A third form of out of class MBA is the online MBA programs wherein everything including the study material is available online and all communication happens through the World Wide Web.

    Though there are these basic differences between correspondence MBA, distance learning MBA and online MBA programs, most universities and institutes fail to differentiate between them and offer the Distance Learning program under the tag of correspondence MBA or online MBA. Some of the most popular Universities in India like the Symbiosis Pune and the Sikkim Manipal University provide to their candidates the distance learning programs in MBA but they are listed all over the internet under the heading of correspondence MBA also. Hence, it is important that the candidates should not get confused by the sheer name but should try to understand what the course has to offer.
