Education is a composition of the curriculum, educator, methods of education, and finally the students. Growth in science and technologies is making available various developmental impacts on the education system; these developments bring a successful educational environment for the students. Distance education is one of the privileges of technological development for the students to have an indestructible education career. The study involves documenting the viewpoint of the hotel management populace towards the prospects and limitations of procuring post graduation programs of hotel management studies in distance learning mode. A stratified random sampling method was used in the collection of opinions with a structured questionnaire, data collected are analysed with the SPSS (24.0) statistical tool. The outcome result of the study shows that the population of study are not interested in spending their time and finance in taking post-graduation courses in regular mode hence they prefer distance learning. They feel that the regular mode courses are not more productive in developing their career, they are interested to build up their educational structure while earning than spending years in acquiring their degree qualifications. The study suggests that post-graduation programs are provided in distance mode; with an improved curriculum constituting the managerial and entrepreneurial-based subjects will improve the students educational values.
