What makes a college popular and reputed? Is it the courses they offer, the faculty, or their successful alumni? The answer is all of the above. You’re drawn to institutes that offer the course you want, but you also require the right type of support for the course in terms of faculty. 


You also need to know how good the course and faculty are, which can be found out by looking at the success of the past students of the college. The more successful the alumni are, the more likely you are to want to go to that college.


What about distance education institutes?


This rule isn’t applicable only to colleges that offer full-time courses, it also applies to institutes that offer distance education courses. It’s a huge misconception that those who opt for distance MBAs or BBAs and so on, are less successful. These courses equip students with the same skills, knowledge, and opportunities as that who have done full-time courses.
