ISB gets AACSB accreditation

Dec 02, 2011

The Indian School of Business (ISB) has received the accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), making it the first business school in South Asia to be recognised by the premier global body. The accreditation by AACSB coincides with the 10th anniversary of the b-school.

The AACSB accreditation has been earned by less than five per cent of the world’s business schools. AACSB, founded in 1916, is an association of more than 1,200 educational institutions, businesses and other organisations in 78 countries.

“The AACSB is unique because of its mission-driven approach, evaluating the applying schools against peer schools with similar missions. Given our commitment to creating research-based knowledge, and developing leaders through innovative world-class programmes, we are delighted to have this robust and independent reaffirmation of our adherence to our mission,” said ISB Dean Ajit Rangnekar.
