IIM Calcutta and Wuhan University Receive EQUIS Accreditation

IIMC becomes India's first triple-accredited business school

EFMD, the international accreditation organization, has announced that it has awarded EQUIS accreditation to India's IIM Calcutta and China's Wuhan University.

With the new accreditation, IIM Calcutta becomes India's first triple-accredited business school. The school offers various master's-level programs in business, including a PGP—which, in India, is the general equivalent of an MBA.

Wuhan University's Economics and Management School was also awarded EQUIS accreditation. The school is the first in central China to be awarded EQUIS accreditation; the school's MBA and EMBA programs are already accredited by AMBA.

With the new awards, EQUIS now accredits some 161 schools in 40 countries.

To receive AMBA accreditation, a business school must undergo a self-assessment, a peer review, and an assessment by an awarding body. EQUIS looks at various aspects of a business school, including governance, programs, faculty, students, research, and sustainability.
