Default MBA@ ICFAI, Hyderabad

Hi all,

I am Kaushal, from ICFAI Business School, Hyderabad.

Considering the rapid growth of business and the wide spectrum of opportunities coming up everyday, an MBA Degree is no doubt a powerful asset for any CV.

While a regular MBA course is everyone's dream but due to many considerations not all are able to pursue it. For those professionals who wish to do an MBA but are unable to leave there jobs and pursue a full time course, ICFAI Business School, Hyderabad (One among the top 10 B-Schools in India) has developed a comprehensive learning package in the form of MBA - Distance Learning Program.

This mail aims at providing an insight into the same.

Not only is this course as good as the regular one but also offers complete flexibility keeping in mind professional commitments and project deadlines.
The course material complies with the latest happenings in the market, a comprehensive analysis of the market scenario and has a cutting edge with a case study focus. An e-learning package with multimedia and CDs of lectures will enhance further understanding of the subjects.

Some of the Unique Features of the Course are:

1.) Flexibility in Examination Schedule: With over 130 examination centers across the country, you can appear for exams from anywhere according to your convenience. The exams are held quarterly and you can give exams in any quarter depending upon your feasibility. Hence in case of project deadlines, the exams won’t be an additional problem! Give them whenever you are free!

2.) Three Levels of Certification: Three certificates provided at different stages (3 Stages in Total) of completion of exams. On clearing the first level (i.e. 6 Exams) a Diploma in Business Mgmt is given followed by Advance Diploma in Business Management and MBA degree at the end of subsequent stages.

3.) Quality Course Material: Regularly updated study material (including text books, work books, books of reading, magazines and journals) is provided after every 3 months. The syllabus not only covers the subjects but also cover the latest market developments.

4.) Case Study Focus: Many Case Studies like McDonalds, Microsoft, HLL, ICICI, etc will be provided which shall give a practical side to the MBA Course.

5.) Unique E-Learning Package: Full multi media package of entire MBA course in CDs will be provided consisting of e-lectures, mock tests, e-notes, quizzes, articles etc.

6.) Job Assistance will also be provided after successful completion of the course. ICFAI has corporate tie up with ALCHEMIST, one of India's leading placement consultancy spread across the entire country.

Default word of caution about ICFAI

Hi All

ICFAI in order to milk money have opened MBA schol in practically all cities and all possible combintaions. See this
MBA portfolio management
MBA Brand management

etc etc

no School in world has come with such stupid two year courses so either wartons and harvards of the world are stupid or ICFAI is best of the lot s :twisted:

ICFAI fee are crazy and placements r zilch

so better ICFAI if you belong to top of the class and for mediacore , everything is good

My sympathies to you my friend.

I read it on wikipedia that ICFAI were sued sucessfully by CFA Institute (formerly known as AIMR, one which gives CFA cahrter worldwide) of trademark violation.

Apparently, ICFAI also awarded the CFA degrees to its student. The court without going into the quality of the program offered by ICFAI and comparing it with the CFA institute banned ICFAI from using CFA degree in North America (USA and Canada).

Also, the fees they charge is exorbitant and on par with CFA Institute. Their degrees don't have a global recognition either.

I urge all to make your decisions wisely.

Hi !

I am sorry to hear your fate with ICFAI. What you said is 100% true. There is absolutely no value to ICFAI and it's programs. They just make money. I have my cousin who works in ICFAI, hyderabad wihich i tihink is it's head office. He laughs at the number of people joining blindly.

a) Cost is too much and their service just opposite. You never get study material on time.
b) Exam fee is too costly.
c) There website is hopeless. Getting hall ticket ionline is a nightmare.
d) they never tell pass %age
e) All students enrolled are mostly techie guys already well employed and they don't care for 70,000 rupees etc.
f) Placement is just zero.
h) There is talk that these guy s fail you wantedly to make the curriculum apper tough.

PLZ PLZ don't join ICFAI. You will be fooled.

Default ICFAI DISTANCE LEARNING----moderators pls reply !!

hi

i was planning to pursue MS-finance (distance learning) from ICFAI,but after reading this thread am in doubt though i really liked the course contents.
infact one of my friend doing MBA -regular frm ICFAI ahemdabad had suggested me to pursue this course....and he also said that this course has great market value.
on coolavenues i've read a lot against ICFAI--distance learning prog;but actually could not get any concrete reason.

pls suggest if its worth to get enrolled in any of ICFAI distance learning courses specifically incase of working individuals.

thanks
sona
