      Hi Harsh,
      Thank you for stopping by. Pursuing an MBA is a big decision and it’s an excellent choice. As I do not know you personally and am not sure of your needs, it would be unethical for me to advise you which university you should choose. However I would recommend that you do enough research on Google and offline before you pick a university. Remember to read our article on accreditation certification of degrees as accreditation is extremely important or your degree will not be recognised.

      It would be wise to pursue a degree from your country however some international degree options are also excellent. When opting for an international online MBA program, remember to research extensively as the institution must be well regarded and you must ensure you are not getting trapped into a distance education scam. Last but not the least, remember to research potential employers and see if they will accept the particular distance learning MBA you are interested in, if not, look elsewhere as at the end of the day your MBA degree should be able to get you a better job.

      Hope I could help. Good luck Harsh.
