The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) has been accredited by the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) Accreditation Board for five years.

In a letter to the Director of IIMB, David M. Saunders PhD, Chairman, EQUIS Accreditation Board, said “The evaluating team was impressed with the significant progress made since the school was last accredited by EQUIS in 2013.”

 

Commenting on the achievement, Prof. R. Srinivasan, Director Incharge, IIMB said, “The prestigious five-year EQUIS accreditation is an affirmation of the world-class quality of IIMB – the school, its processes and its programmes.”

 

As of 2016 EQUIS has accredited 167 management schools from different parts of the globe with three B-Schools from India; namely, IIM Ahmedabad (5 years), IIM Calcutta (3 years) and IIM Bangalore (5 years).  EQUIS assesses institutions as a whole. It assesses not just degree programmes but all the activities and sub-units of the institution, including research, e-learning units, executive education provision and community outreach. Institutions must be primarily devoted to management education.

 

Prof. Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes, added: “Let’s celebrate and continue our journey towards making IIM Bangalore an exemplary institution.”

 

Five year accreditation, the highest that EQUIS confers, is a testimony to the fact that the evaluating team was confident about IIMB’s ability to sustain its efforts undertaken to achieve excellent standards in education, internationalization and research.

 

The Global accreditation body makes special mention of the premier management school’s high quality students, well-ranked programmes& industry connect

 

The Accreditation Board took particular note of the quality of the school as reflected in its attraction of very high quality students, the provision of well-ranked management programmes, and the establishment of close connections with Indian business and government, the career success of its graduates and the outstanding campus in India’s high technology capital – Bangalore.

 

The EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) is a global school accreditation system. It specializes in higher education institutions of management and business administration, run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). The fundamental objective of EQUIS, linked to the mission of EFMD, is to raise the standard of management education worldwide.
