Distance Learning :
The Directorate of Distance Education (DDE) is one more feather in the cap of the Pondicherry University. The University, in the academic year 1995-96, entered into the field of offering distance education to cater to the needs of the student community. It serves the citizens who have been denied the opportunity to continue their studies earlier. The programmes offered by the Directorate are innovative and job-oriented. The programmes such as MBA General with four specialization in Marketing, Finance, International Business & Human Resource Management are some of the very emerging programmes to be launched through Distance mode.
The curriculum of the programmes have been designed in such a way so that the course content is the most up-to-date and stimulates every aspiring manager to enroll.
Its uniqueness lies in the Personal Contact Programmes which are conducted regularly and systematically for all the programmes. Experienced Faculty from various Universities/Industries is drawn to deliver lectures so that the target audience receives the maximum benefit and derive academic inputs from these Personal Contact Programmes.
At the end of every Personal Contact Programme, the students are asked to evaluate and give a feed back on the Programme conducted so that an objective assessment of the programmes is made. Course materials are prepared assiduously by experienced Faculty who has made a mark in their area of specializations.
The Directorate has opened Personal Contact Programme centres in some important cities spread throughout the length and breadth of this country, starting from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Some of the remote centres are Jammu, Port Blair and Guwahati.
