Indian Institute of Management (IIM-Indore) received its first international accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), a UK-based accreditation agency, for four of its full-time programmes on Thursday.

The programmes include a two-year post graduate programme in management (both at Indore and Mumbai), a one-year full time executive post-graduate programme in management (EPGP) and a five-year integrated programme in management (IPM, 4th and 5th Year).

IIM-Indore is now among the few B-schools accredited by AMBA and the 4th IIM in the country to receive this accreditation. In a span of 20 years, IIM Indore has been the only institute to offer a five year integrated programme in management, a post graduate programme and a weekend post graduate programme for working executives in Mumbai. The institute is also the first IIM to offer a doctoral programme in management for working professionals.

Congratulating faculty, staff, students, alumni and other stakeholders of IIM Indore, professor Rishikesha T Krishnan, director, IIM Indore, said, “One of our key objectives is to maintain world class academic standards and international accreditation is an important affirmation of this achievement.”
