Well, most of us have been through this question more or less when selecting higher study options.

And this has been discussed in so many places that it might sound sore here!
But, even if you have enrolled yourself to a PGDBA/PGDBM (distance program) the conventional ideas tell you some how the MBA is better preferred.
