Many students or people, for many reasons, are unable to attend a professional degree in various Universities due to financial reasons, office working or other personal reasons. With the increasing competition in the job market, higher education has become a need of today`s industry. Nowadays, almost every Company is expecting their employees to continuously develop themselves professionally rather than get freeze to one position. The lack of up-skills can create hindrance in getting the job of your dreams, and losing out to a slightly more qualified candidate that result in long wait for a promotion. A higher distance learning course can be the best choice to fill this gap.

Distance learning is a way to do higher certification by getting study materials that fulfills the coursework from remote locations, allowing lecturers and students to interact without being in the same place. These days this way of learning is a rising and popular mode of education especially for those who lives in far flung areas and somehow not able to attend regular classes.

The improved internet technology like emailing, video conferencing and other modern systems has enhanced the popularity of distance learning. These advance techniques empowers colleges and universities to provide new and unique mode of online teaching resources to students located globally. Thus student does not have to do attend classrooms to obtain good academic qualifications up to master degree level.

The big advantage of such e-learning programs is that it causes less disruption to professional and personal life. It is a good option for job seekers who look to boost their careers without causing much disruption to their regular working life. The experienced professionals who cannot afford the time required by a full-time M.Tech, MBA or any Post Diploma programs can make distance education as a gateway to add-up their qualification level.

The second major benefit of such education is less time consuming as compare to regular learning, more geographic flexibility and exposure to wide range of learners located globally. Moreover, class work can easily be scheduled according to personal or professional commitments.

The beginning of distance MBA for executives has given later a golden chance to acquire a management degree through various correspondence MBA courses. This distance learning education is easy to achieve as it simultaneously allows the employees to continue with their respective job. The scholars no need to be present in the classrooms and they have flexibility to continue their classes from home.

But in spite of all such flexibilities there are limitations with such remote learning procedure. The first and most important is no personal contact with fellow teachers or students thus very little chance of interactive learning with others. The second one is the reliability issue i.e. whether the online courses offered by colleges are genuine or accredited to some reliable university. However, some students hesitate while going for distance learning since they feel little insecure without visiting the college. Some highly educated and experienced professionals even feel that it is a poor choice for career switchers.

All in all, everyone can find some pros and cons in online education and it is up to him/her what type of learning to choose. Although it does not suit everyone and thus is situational and depends upon the person's needs. Today, there are thousands of good institutes which offer distance learning PG cources, Phd programs and Executive MBA programs to graduates and working professionals round the globe.
