Future of management education is closely linked to a strong quality orientation at the campuses which integrates the campus with the world as their output, the student managers are to take up jobs in an increasingly globalizing world where they are expected to possess extraordinary knowledge about global businesses. India with a high growth trajectory will be requiring future manpower honed not only in basic skills of management but also exposed to the best benchmarks of quality and tools of doing business with. Ordinary classrooms are now being converted into global classrooms with the use of state of the art of learning and teaching tools and the pedagogy is being completely revamped to suit the growing needs of the students.
In this context, GNIMS with its clear focus on benchmarking with the best in the business had teamed up with Association of Indian Management Schools (AIMS), India’s premier association of top management schools , Peregrine Academics , the global education services company with footprint in 30 countries worldwide and its partner in India SEAA Trust, New Delhi , the only International Accreditation and quality benchmarking advocacy agency in the world to bring to you an one day International Seminar on Future of Management Education which will also focus on all available international accreditation options.
It is the reckoning of top management thinkers that accreditation gives a shape and body to the quality perception of a business school and both the process and the actual branding that the school receives from quality accreditation agencies would provide a high competitive edge to the business schools.
The accreditation processes enable the schools to streamline their own working and align their systems and structure to suit the best in the world and also open venues for acquiring state of the art of benchmarks of quality from around the world. Globally leading accreditation systems including AACSB, EFMD-EQUIS, AMBA, ACBSP, IACBE, SAQS and British Accreditation Council have perfected their learning and have put in place systems and processes themselves to constantly update their own knowledge for passing on to their member schools.
