I would go for IGNOU compared to any other university as it is a national university. While applying for a job name of any particular university also matters. It is better if the name of the university should not carry any regional tone or bias. Moreover IGNOU has unmatched accumulated experience in distance learning courses. It offers much better competition and learning experience to the students.

In order to grab your MBA from an open university, you may choose IGNOU since the same has better acceptability from student circle. The cirricula of most of the courses including MBA is at par with other distinguished universities. You can get a better learning experience here. In the class - session, which is conducted for a specific duration, you may wipe out your doubt for which you don't find solution yourself.
IGNOU has a number of study- centre across the country for better accessibility of the courses among the student - community.

IGNOU has wider acceptance and lot of offshore and internal universities give much preference to it. So I'd say go for the IGNOU's MBA. You can also checkout Symbiosis and Kota depending on the type of the education you want. There are plenty of options for you in case of MBAs via distance education mode. There is one popular course for MBA in Finance from Punjab University. Do check out some of the other popular universities from states in india. This should give you an idea of which course is good for you.

Are you planning to go for MBA as your additional post graduate degree?
If not, then I would suggest you to do it as your regular course.
Distance learning post graduation degree is only advisable if you are already post graduate and want to pursue this course to enhance your professional profile.

If we compare IGNOU and Kota Open university, IGNOU has nation wide acceptance where as Kota is very well known but in Rajasthan. So go for IGNOU. Although the course will be similar for both institutes, IGNOU will give positive impact when you will try for a job in any state of India.
