    Hi,

    I have been working in a refinery as an engineer since November 2006. Now I am switching my career to human resource department in the same company. I wanted to do an MBA after one year, preferably 1 year executive MBA.

    During this one year in my hand before MBA, I wanted to study something which will help in later in my career after my MBA.

    I am thinking of few options, corporate law, labor laws, human psychology, managerial economics, corporate behavior, emotional intelligence.

    Now I wanted to know about best universities which provide distant learning courses in any of the above subjects. I found a number of them via Google, but I am afraid I shouldn't join some fake university.

    Any suggestions?? One more thing if you find any other subjects which is related to Human resource field please let me know about those too..

    Thanks

    Due some course in Behavioral Science, Psychology won't help you, specifically Applied Behavioral Analysis if they offer it.
    Human Psych would only help you if you want to diagnose mental disorders or theorize/research how the mind and the brain work. Despite the stereotype put on psychologists by media many are no more certified to deal with people and their problems as an engineer.

    Check their accreditation among brink and mortar schools or college rating services or the state.

    Why dont you just do the distance course at the University of Chennai? they offer them in English and they are recognised by the government of India?

    Although I hear Indian colleges are impossible to get into....

    Does it have to be an american college? Have you thought of British, Australian, Canadian too? I think American might be very expensive
