Asian Business School (ABS) has added another feather to its strong credentials by getting the prestigious NBA accreditation for its flagship PGDM program. The accreditation now makes us one of the very few privileged colleges across India whose PGDM programme has this prestigious NBA accreditation.
The National Board of Accreditation (NBA) is one of the two major bodies responsible for accreditation of higher education institutions in India, along with the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).NBA accredits technical programmes, such engineering and management programmes, while NAAC accredits general colleges and universities. NBA is a full member of the Washington Accord.
What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a process of quality assurance and improvement, whereby a programme in an approved Institution is critically appraised to verify that the Institution or the programme continues to meet and/or exceed the Norms and Standards prescribed by regulator from time to time. It is a kind of recognition which indicates that a programme or Institution fulfills certain standards.
The purpose of the accreditation by NBA is to promote and recognize excellence in technical education in colleges and universities – at both the undergraduate and post graduate levels. Institutions, students, employers, and the public at large all benefit from the external verification of quality provided through the NBA accreditation process. They also benefit from the process of continuous quality improvement that is encouraged by the NBA’s developmental approach to promote excellence in technical education.
Thus, this acquisition of the much sought-after NBA accreditation by Asian Business School for its flagship PGDM program only adds to its growing stature as one of India’s top PGDM institute for management studies!
