Distance Education refers to the education imparted remotely with the help of modern communication technology. SMU offers distance education programs to provide quality education to students who, for various reasons, cannot be part of a classroom set-up.
Postgraduate and Graduate Programs are offered in the disciplines of Information Technology, Management Studies and Healthcare Sciences. SMU-DE programs are learner-centric, using distinct delivery methods like Self Learning Materials (SLMs), Counselling sessions and EduNxt - a virtual classroom.
At present, passing the entrance examination is compulsory only for taking admission in our MBA Program. The admission to various programs is purely based on eligibility criteria, as prescribed in the prospectus.
