The Indian School of Business has officially received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities in post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA and recent MBA alumni of The Indian School of Business are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of more than 60,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits.
Accreditation from the Association of MBAs represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation.
During the accreditation process conducted by AMBA, members of the accreditation panel, representing senior management from globally accredited business schools, commended the business school’s premises as being best-in-class on an international scale and providing a truly impressive learning environment that was evidently appreciated by all stakeholders.
The panel also noted that the research output among the institution’s faculty was highly impressive and believed that this would play a key role in the school’s future development.
Finally, the panel noted that the institutional and programme leadership teams are very collegiate. They thought the academic and pastoral well-being of students was a top priority and was managed by caring and dedicated teams at the school.
Professor Ramabhadran Thirumalai, Deputy Dean – Academic Programmes, Indian School of Business (ISB) said:“I am delighted that ISB continues to be recognized by AMBA as an institution of pre-eminence globally. This re-accreditation is a testament to ISB’s relentless pursuit of excellence, world class pedagogy, rigorous research, and outstanding faculty who mentor some of the brightest students. There is more to an institution than its physical infrastructure. The greatness of an institution is shaped by its people who mould it in myriad ways. I congratulate everyone at ISB who continue to make the school a great place to learn every day and in every way.”
AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and consider changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding business schools to perform at the highest level continually.
Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said: “Congratulations to The Indian School of Business for this re-accreditation. The business school is a hugely influential school in the higher education network and I am delighted that it is part of AMBA. I look forward to working with the school in the future.”
