Following is the brief answer for this question.
It is nice to know that you wish to upgrade your knowledge, skills and qualifications while working in your present job. Your decision to pursue MBA program is well appreciated. However MBA program through distance education is not valued by companies unless it is pursued from a good University. You must remember to register for MBA program only if it is DEC approved and in a regular University.
Manipal University does not offer distance education programs. However, their group institution Sikkim Manipal University offers distance education programs. Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning (SCDL), ICFAI University, Osmania University (OU), Andhra University etc. are some of the universities offering respectable MBA programs on distance mode.
