Distance Education

Education in the distance mode has always been popular for those desirous of enhancing their knowledge while pursuing their career.

In the current economic scenario where students are keen on opting for a job as soon as they graduate, the scope for distance education is unlimited. Once in service it becomes increasingly difficult to take a sabbatical to pursue higher education. Without enhanced qualification growth becomes retarded.
