XIMB had the honour of becoming the third such B-school in India to be granted this prestigious recognition.
The South Asian Quality Assurance Systems or SAQS was evolved as a system to provide a quality assurance and accreditation framework for business and management schools in South Asia. It uses a set of criteria developed from business and management schools of high national and international standing.
The SAQS recognition will be valid for a period of 5 years. XIMB is expected to submit an institutional development report at the end of 2 ½ years, and apply for re-accreditation after the 5 year period is up.
This recognition will help XIMB showcase its qualifications in a format that will be acceptable to the top institutes and corporates in South Asia. It will pave the way for XIMB to apply for other prestigious accreditations like EQUIS and AACSB, in the future.
Commenting on XIMB's success in achieving this recognition, the Dean (Academics), Prof. W. S. William said, "Collegiate atmosphere and a learning environment in XIMB will get a further boost with such recognition, which qualifies our quality standards, in line with leading global schools of the world."
