Default Re: Continuing Education for working Professionals

I think most cases, why distance education is treated as second string in our country is primarily because many see it as a ticket to add a degree to the resume rather than an enabler to their skill and learning curve.

Add to it the usual measure of education itself being treated as business. If the classic class-room based course itself comes under scanner, imagine the fate of distance education.

Just see how many folks add a one month course taken at an IIT/IIM as their achievement on their linked in, just to get attached to the brand of the institute.

Now coming to continuing education; its a fantastic option for working professionals provided; they choose the right options and their motive is pure. By pure I mean, they are really interested in the learning curve rather than just wanting to add a feather to their cap. Some of those executive programs by IIMs are very good and gruelling to say the least. The candidate really needs to get into the thick of things to see it through.

But having said that, many programs fall through the crack owing to the basic flaws of goal and fulfilment aspects. And to add to it: Options for research in sciences and engineering are very limited in India (I mean for working folks) as against institutes in other countries (US etc).
