I am not sure whether it is worth it or not Placement is not my worry, probably learning/mastering management skills is my main Motive. Anyone who has done an online MBA from upgrad/edx/courseera. Please share your experience.

If you can take time off for a couple years or have a great profile for ISB, etc., it is always better to go for full-time MBA. But, if learning is your only goal without any worry about placement or alumni network, any decent online MBA would do. You can also look at overseas MBA programs.
