Sabin Lamichchane

Working as a loan officer, Sabin Lamichchane chose to pursue his online MBA degree from Manipal University Jaipur. When we asked him why he chose to pursue his MBA degree online, he said, “I was looking for an online degree for quite some time. Moreover, I couldn’t afford to attend classes on a regular basis in an on-campus set up because of my work. I didn’t want to quit my job either and wanted to pursue a degree from the comfort of my home.” 

Lamichchane then came across MUJ’s online MBA program and decided to enroll. “I chose Online Manipal because of flexible learning opportunities. Also, Manipal holds great brand value, and I thought MUJ was a credible university to pursue my online degree from.” 

Currently, Sabin Lamichchane is working as a junior officer. He wants to enhance his skillset and expand his domain knowledge to climb up the career ladder. Also, to move up to the leadership position, his job demands a master’s degree.  

Speaking about his experience with Manipal University Jaipur, he says, “Firstly, the curriculum covers all industry-relevant topics. Secondly, the mentors and course coordinators are helpful and approachable. I have interacted with a couple of mentors, and they have guided me in submitting my assignments. They also help us in case we require in-depth knowledge about a subject or concept. From course curriculum, e-learning material and assignments, everything is on the learning management systems (LMS) and is very easy to navigate.” 

Sabin Lamichchane is in constant touch with his peers across nationalities, who are giving him diverse perspectives.  

Quitting his job was never an option, and Online Manipal has helped him in his career growth without a career break.

Bhaskar Bhatt

The startup founder of his IT firm, Bhaskar Bhatt has been working in software development for the last 6 years. He dropped out of engineering to opt for a degree that is more flexible and one that does not hinder his business commitments. So, he chose to pursue his online BCA degree through Online Manipal. 

Speaking about the challenges he faces as an entrepreneur, Bhaskar says, “Becoming a startup founder in Nepal is not easy. It takes a lot of effort. The last few years have been very challenging for me. Having slept only for 3-4 hours a day, I ensure to balance my work life and academics well.” 

Speaking about Online Manipal, Bhaskar Bhatt says, “Firstly, the brand name- Manipal is globally recognized, and it gives students the right exposure. Secondly, free access to paid Coursera content has helped me a lot.”

Sudip Dhungana

With a BBA background and some experience in human resources, Sudip Dhungana realized pursuing an MBA degree was very important for his career growth.  

“One of my ex-colleagues had pursued an online degree and he suggested that I consider it too. After researching various universities offering online degrees, I came across Manipal University Jaipur and that was the best choice,” Sudip says. 

Sudip wanted to pursue his MBA degree without quitting his job, so he chose to pursue his online degree through Online Manipal. While there are many distance learning options available, Sudip feels online learning is more flexible. “In distance learning, we need to study by ourselves, and we must appear for examinations physically. However, with online education, the entire program is delivered in virtual mode, making it easy especially for working professionals,” he says. 

Through MUJ’s online MBA program, Sudip can enhance his knowledge and practically apply the skills he acquires on the job. The industry-oriented curriculum at MUJ is helping him overcome business challenges and come up with effective solutions.  

He has also made optimum use of the free access to paid content on Coursera to upgrade his domain knowledge.
