PG courses are certainly equal to MBA.
Please note that IIM ( Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Kolkatta, Indore, Lucknow) offer PG Diplomas and not MBA degree.

Hi, most of the organizations accept distance learning courses and institutes also accept these courses for further studies. However, distance learning courses cannot be compared with full time degree courses. Some of the organizations/institutes give low credibility to distance learning/correspondence courses. As such there is no fixed criterion. SCDL is very reputed institute and SCDL course are considered to be of repute as far as the distance learning courses are concerned. MBA is very popular course among the industry professionals who want to upgrade their skills while continuing his job. Most of the organizations (private and public sector) accept courses from SCDL. However, every organization has its eligibility criteria and selection procedure and candidate have to follow that procedure. Minimum eligibility for PhD is post graduation degree from any recognized university, with a Bachelor’s degree/ equivalent qualification obtained after a minimum of three years of education after completing higher secondary schooling (10+2) or equivalent. Post-graduate Diploma in Business Administration, considered equivalent to MBA are also accepted for PhD. Some institute might have some additional criteria like 2-3 years' post qualification full time relevant work experience in executive capacity, 55 % marks or equivalent CGPA at PG level, entrance test etc. Some of the institutes require GATE/NET for PhD. Every institute has its own selection procedure which you can find out directly from the institute. All the best!

@shree Janani
yes, you are correct.SCDL has self declared and replied me through mail that its PG Diplomas are not equivalent to an MBA or any other PG programme hence those who do PG Diplomas from SCDL are not eligible for any job in public sector where MBA in a pre requisite and they are also not eligible for Ph.D

Hi Piyush,

SCDL offers PGDBA which is just a diploma and not a Masters degree. On its site nothing is mentioned about its equivalency of this course to MBA. For a Ph.D course it is important to have a degree in Masters.

All the Best!

Hi Friends...
In this blog created lot of confusion about the SCDL PGDBA degree.
I have gone through "DISTANCE EDUCATION COUNCI", University Grants Commission, and MHRD (Indian Ministry of Human Resource and Development) websites. Came to know that SCDL is approved institution from DEC and UGC.
All the deemed universities degrees are equal to Govt. universities degrees (this order is found in Govt. Gazette Notification). So SCDL students are eligible for Indian Government services also. So wherever Gov.t is asking for diploma holders SCDL PGDBA students also eligible. So don't worry.
Now the question is whether SCDL-PGDBA equals to Post graduation degree or not. In some of the notification i saw that, the diploma holders having the course duration (2years 4 semesters in PGDBA case) same as general post-graduation are eligible as general post-graduation students. In this case SCDL-PGDBA equals to general post-graduation. Note: This is not applicable to all the cases. It depends on organization and employer (Govt. & private) …..>>Contd in next Blog.

I dont think you can do a Ph.D with PGDBA from Symbiosis. You need a master's degree for doing it, not a diploma. I have raised this question to SCDL before, and got myself clarified.
