Why an MBA and IIM
India: IIMs are allowed to award academic titles
The Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) are among the best business schools in India. Now they can also obtain academic degrees such as the MBA and Ph.D. forgive.
As “Institutes of National Importance”, the 20 Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) have a special position in India. They report directly to the Ministry of Human Resources Development and not to the Ministry of Education. So far, they have not been allowed to award an MBA title. Instead, graduates received a Postgraduate Diploma in Management. The doctoral programs were called “Fellow Program in Management (FPM)”.
Now the Indian parliament has passed a law that allows the IIMs to also award MBA and Ph.D. degrees. In addition, the institutes are given more autonomy in appointing their boards. And the director can now be elected directly by the board. This was previously done by the government (Central Government).
Although the IIMs were previously not allowed to award an MBA, they were placed in the international MBA rankings. The IIM in Ahmedabad was ranked 29th in the Global MBA Ranking of the Financial Times 2017 and the IIM in Bangalore was ranked 49th worldwide. The IIMs in Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Calcutta also have EQUIS accreditation, which is considered the most demanding of the three international accreditations.
The prestige of the IIMs in India is enormous and their strict selection criteria are legendary. Anyone who applies to one of the 20 IIMs must complete the Common Admission Test (CAT). In 2017 there were around 231,000 applicants for a total of almost 4,000 study places.
