T. A. Pai Management Institute, Manipal, Karnataka popularly known as TAPMI, Manipal has earned the initial accreditation for its post graduate programmes, PGDM and PGDM (Healthcare) by recent action of the Board of Directors of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, International (AACSB) on April 11, 2012. TAPMI joins an elite group of institutions that have achieved business accreditation from AACSB International. TAPMI and ISB are the only two business schools in India to have earned this distinguished hallmark of excellence in management education.
"We warmly congratulate TAPMI and its director Dr. R. C. Natarajan, and welcome them into the AACSB family of internationally accredited business schools," said John J Fernandes, president and CEO of AACSB International. He further said, "AACSB Accreditation represents the highest achievement for an educational institution and its college of business. The director, faculty, deans and administrative staff of TAPMI are to be commended for their dedication and commitment for a continuous improvement, and for their role in earning initial accreditation."Dr. Ramdas Pai, chairman, TAPMI said, "The entire TAPMI-community worked for many years to put together the quality-process in place. Whereas the faculty members and staff were very actively involved in this process, they kept the trustees and the members of the governing council closely involved in various parts of the effort, leaving no stone unturned. This is recognition for their ability to bring the whole team collectively together and their commitment to high quality education.""During the accreditation process, TAPMI was visited and evaluated by business school deans from reputed institutions with detailed knowledge of management education, applying the accreditation standards that are widely-accepted in the educational community. These evaluations processes involved rigorous review of TAPMI's mission and how its curriculum, structure, systems, processes and people fit together to achieve this mission. They used what is known as triangulation process that checked the veracity of the school's claim of following the processes they declared by talking to various stakeholders in formal as well as informal settings," said Dr. Natarajan. TAPMI's achievement will be recognised at the end of April 2012 at the AACSB International Conference and Annual Meeting (ICAM) in San Diego, California, US.
