The Hyderabad based Indian School of Business (ISB) has become the South-Asia's first B-School to earn an accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Less than five per cent of the world's business schools are accredited by AACSB.
"The AACSB is unique because of its mission-driven approach, evaluating the applying schools against peer schools with similar missions," said Ajit Rangnekar, Dean of ISB during the announcement. "We are confident that this recognition will translate into increased interest by the international community including faculty, students and recruiters."

Achieving AACSB accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, evaluation, and adjustment. The ISB's accreditation coincides with the tenth anniversary of the school, which has become the youngest institution to be ranked among the top 20 b-schools in the world.
