Assessment of quality

Accreditation by an independent third party agency provides us a detailed assessment of whether our programmes meet the highest standards of quality as compared to global benchmarks or not. Additionally, a team of global experts also provides us detailed feedback during the assessment process on how we can further improve the quality of programme to conform to the global standards. It not only ensures genuine feedback on our content, processes and outcomes, but also takes us on the path of continuous commitment. International accreditations lend a global benchmarking opportunity to any institute. As a result, an institute gets objective and novel inputs on various dimensions to improve its offering, and for its overall sustainability. It also helps us take a step back and assess the strategic positioning of our institute. Our Indian students therefore get a scope to have detailed knowledge about global management practices and cross cultural behaviour, which is necessary.

Program accountability

Accreditation helps the institutions of higher learning foster program accountability to the stakeholders, including students, recruiters, regulators and general public, and engagement in continuous peer review and improvement. For the students, having a degree from a program that is nationally or internationally accredited provides an assurance of learning outcomes, but it can also mean that the degree will be valued by employers and other external agencies.

Role in student selection

Accreditation is also useful for other stakeholders such as students and employers. For students, it provides an assurance of the quality of the institution while making selection choices. For employers, an institutional accreditation is an assurance of program graduates’ acceptable skills and competencies imparted during the programme, enhancing their ability to perform broad range of professional responsibilities.

While accreditation, without doubt, helps signal the quality to protect the interests of the various stakeholders, it does guarantee that the program participants can potentially demonstrate a certain set of skills and abilities as envisaged in the outcomes as reflected in the accreditation criteria.

Do the IIM interview panel recognize certificates from MOOC like edx ?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 24th Oct, 2019

Hello Ninad,

During the interview, the members of panel wants to know about you, and how much passionately you are doing things in your life. They go through your academic profile as well. If you have some extra and interesting things to show it will definitely attract the panel. And they are bound to ask questions related to that course. If you are able to give answers, you will surely get benefitted. But stating a certificate doesn't means marks always. Your marks may get deduce also, so be careful.

Hope this will be helpful.

Good luck
