If your company sponsors I think that would be best

You have lot of options to get into executive MBA

Any idea if companies do consider Distance MBA as equivalent to as Full Time MBA ?

It depends if you are specifically targetting a position then the company has to provide the eligibility criteria while the post is been listed

Else if you are targetting generally then most of the companies do not agree as there is less visibility in the genuineness of the degree because you can get the exams and degree done by anyone else in your place

In India Tier 2 & 3 college degree itself isn't valued so a distance education MBA isn't valued much with an exception only for HR field

Thanks ... This helps
