The Institute of Business Administration has joined a group of seven other top business schools in South Asia, six from India and LUMS from Pakistan when it was awarded the coveted certification by the South Asian Quality Assurance System (SAQS).
SAQS has its headquarters in Hyderabad, India. Its main function is to rigorously evaluate business schools in the region against the quality parameters of the European Quality Assurance System. IBA’s dean and director, Dr Ishrat Husain, said that this is just beginning of a long journey upon which they have embarked. The next hurdles they hope to overcome are European and American accreditation.
