Accreditation and Rankings


Tuesday, 14th April 2020
11:00 am IST

Mostly limited to the US for AACSB, US World News; and Europe for EFMD, AMBA, Financial Times 20 years ago, international accreditations and rankings have become a clear marker of the quality of business schools and are more and more widely used by students and partners in their choice. Furthermore, they share many similarities in the criteria and supporting strategies. This workshop will focus on the two central accreditation bodies for business schools and the national rankings in India and their specificities.

Based on the direct experience of the panelists in business schools in many countries, working on rankings, ratings and accreditation leads in most cases to discuss the impact of the business school and consequently how they need to review four strategic activities: internationalisation, digitalisation, entrepreneurship activities and research.
