Kozhikode: The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) has received international accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) for its Post-Graduate Programme (PGP) and Executive Post-graduate Programme (ePGP).
AMBA accreditation is an internationally recognised standard for post-graduate business education and its network currently has 9,000 members from 88 countries. AMBA has so far accredited 168 business schools located in 72 countries.
The AMBA accreditation differs from AACSB in the US and EQUIS in Europe as it looks at the specific post-graduate business programmes rather than the entire school. According to a statement from IIMK, the accreditation panel from AMBA made a thorough review of the campus, curriculum, operations and the stake-holders and expressed satisfaction over the quality of faculty and the students, industry interface and the world class physical infrastructure.
Prof Debashis Chatterjee, Director, IIMK, said that this was yet another milestone for the institute.
