I was a resident of Tamil Nadu as I completed my graduation in regular college then I started working and all so couldn’t complete my post-graduation degree. That was the reason I took up distance MBA in this Open University and this was best institute for distance learning in which I could take admission. For distance MBA the fees paid yearly was Rs. 50,150. For buying application form online the fee is Rs. 200 and for registration it is Rs. 300. Tamil Nadu Open University admission for the distance MBA will need just graduation degree. This is the one institute which is been recognized by the IGNOU as well as the state government.
