SPJIMR earns AACSB International accreditation

AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools

AACSB International announced that the SP 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 recognises institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. Today, 831 institutions across 54 countries and territories maintain AACSB Accreditation. Furthermore, 187 institutions maintain a supplemental AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programmes.

“There has been significant learning for the institute through the accreditation process,” said Ranjan Banerjee, Dean of SPJIMR.

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.

AACSB 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, 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 also earned accreditation in business.
