What are the benefits of MCPS?

Different people have different opinions on this matter, but I put forward my opinion in this article. 

If you have one year of training, you can do a degree in a short time.

For those who are doing residency / diploma from BSMMU, the advantage is that they do not need separate training for doing this degree. They can directly increase their holdings by one degree with MCPS.
