AACSB International (AACSB) announced that the S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) has earned accreditation. Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide.
AACSB Accreditation provides a framework of 15 international standards against which business schools around the world assess the quality of their educational services. These standards ensure continuous improvement and provide focus for schools to deliver on their mission, innovate, and drive impact. AACSB-accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB Accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally and, as a result, has been earned by only 5 percent of the world’s schools offering business degrees at the bachelor level or higher. Today, 831 institutions across 54 countries and territories maintain AACSB Accreditation. Furthermore, 187 institutions maintain a supplemental AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programmes.
“The S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication – not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole. Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of SPJIMR to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally.” – Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International.
AACSB International also announced that the Business School at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, ESCA Ecole de Management, Indian Institute of Management Udaipur, International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF), Jyväskylä University, Macquarie University, National Chung-Hsing University, the School of Accounting at Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, Troy University, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Universidade de Lisboa, and the University of Mary Washington have earned accreditation in business.
