Fears of pursuing an online degree 

We asked our learners why people hesitate to pursue online degrees, and here is what we found out.

A myth about online degrees is that they take more time than offline degrees. However, the course duration of online degrees is the same as offline degrees.

Another concern is job opportunities. Online degrees will land you jobs on par with offline degrees. Online Manipal’s supportive faculty provide valuable placement assistance along with professional resume building and interview tips.
