Goa Institute of Management receives joint accreditation from AMBA, BGA
GIM received AMBA and BGA accreditation for commitment to responsible management, Give Goa initiative and school infrastructure.
NEW DELHI: Goa Institute of Management has received joint accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Business Graduates Association (BGA) for commitment to responsible management, a course to sensitize students about health requirements of the society, and school infrastructure.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current and recent graduates of the school’s MBA and MBM portfolio are invited to join AMBA’s global membership network of around 60,000 students and alumni in over 150 countries. Meanwhile, all undergraduates and alumni from any of the business school’s programmes are invited to join BGA’s individual membership network. Through both these organisations, students and graduates can strengthen a community that acts as a force for good in management thought and practice, through exclusive events and business content.
As part of the joint AMBA and BGA accreditation, a panel of assessors including senior business school leaders from across the globe evaluated the school. The panel commended the school and its staff for having a very strong, clear and passionate commitment to responsible management which permeated the majority of its activities, and was further evidenced by international partnerships and awards.
The panel also mentioned the Give Goa initiative which is a course aiming to sensitise students to the health needs of the community and to make them aware of the social responsibility needed towards the underprivileged and marginalised communities.
Finally, the panel mentioned the school infrastructure which they thought was conducive to a high quality, supportive, and safe learning environment.
Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA and BGA, said, “I would like to congratulate everyone at the Goa Institute of Management who worked towards this double accreditation. Being AMBA accredited shows the quality of the schools MBA and MBM programmes, while BGA indicates the schools commitment to social responsibility. I look forward to working with this school as it joins our network of the top 2% of business schools globally.”
Ajit Parulekar, director of Goa Institute of Management, said, “I am very pleased to see GIM setting new benchmarks in management education with emphasis on responsible management and in the comprehensive development of students. With our commitment to create research based knowledge, and making leaders through world class programmes, we are happy to have received these robust and independent reaffirmation of our commitment to management education.”
