The All India Management Association (AIMA) offers a postgraduate diploma in management (PGDM) with specialisations in insurance, human resource management (HRM), finance, marketing, operations and international business through distance learning. The precondition of admission is clearance of AIMA’s Management Aptitude Test (MAT).
The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) also offers an MBA with specialisation in HRM, finance, operations and marketing through correspondence. Admission is for students who have passed MAT. Both these study programmes are good.
Another correspondence option is offered by the Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University, Dnyangangotri, Near Gangapur Dam, Nasik 422 222 (www.yemou.com). The advantage of AIMA and IGNOU is that they have a countrywide network of study centres.
