In today’s demanding corporate world, experience alone isn’t enough. More and more companies are insisting on the right qualifications to go with the job. Those that have already spent some years in the workforce, but lacking relevant qualifications, are feeling the heat. Taking a break from work to pursue bridging qualifications is simply not an option for many – especially those with dependants.
Taking cognizance of the situation, Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (Declared as Deemed to be University) has revamped its distance education programs through its NMIMS Global Access – School for Continuing Education (NGA – SCE). Carefully developed in consultation with industry and academic experts after a thorough analysis of corporate world demands, competitive market requirements and global education standards, these programs allow aspirants to keep their day jobs while providing them the flexibility to acquire the necessary qualifications from the comfort of their own home.
The curriculum at NGA – SCE consistently reflects market realities as innovative techniques are employed in upgrading course material. The programs are thus always relevant to the current corporate narrative, while being high on quality and rigour.
All programs are extremely flexible with an emphasis on self-paced learning. There is a constant endeavour to improve program quality in terms of both content and delivery, complemented by a robust 24x7 online student support system. The sheer bandwidth of content caters to diverse needs of management students, working executives, fresh graduates and housewives. This is available through a bouquet of programs at Certificate (6 month), Diploma (1 year) and Post-Graduate (2 year) levels. Program highlights include:
· Self study instructional material supported by e-books
· Online lecture delivery
· Personal Contact Program
· Access to Learning Mgmt System and exhaustive digital library
To enhance student interaction, NGA – SCE has increased its footprint across 11 cities in India. NGA – SCE Authorised Information Centres and University Regional Offices allow value addition and ease of access to students.
Within the distance learning space, NGA-SCE was named ‘Top Distance Learning Institute of India’ by Competition Success Review in both 2013 and 2014; while also consecutively ranking 2nd in Zee Business’ report.
Across rating lists, NMIMS has consistently been ranked amongst elite B-Schools. In 2011, 6th amongst India’s top ‘Ivy League’ schools on the basis of recruiters’ perception conducted by the Economic Times and IMRB. That same year, it was the only Indian institute to be recognised in the McKinsey & Company report for growth of entrepreneur and family business. In 2012, across all B-Schools, ranked overall 3rd best B-School by Competition Success Review, 7th by Business Today and 5th by Outlook Magazine.
Over the years, the legions of students that have passed through its portals have gone on to harvest great success in the corporate world – domestically and globally.
