To be assessed globally and then be a part of the exclusive club of 716 B-schools is a great opportunity. Therefore this is a major breakthrough for us."

IIM-Calcutta underwent five years of assessment by AACSB, and based on 21 standard assessments of which 19 are applicable to the B-school, as it don't offer any undergraduate programme, has been given accreditation for a period of five years.

"We all like to be a global player, to have international faculty and students and with this accreditation we will be a part of the top international network of B-schools. What helped us is that we think differently in our continuous improvement. We were assessed on our international research and their relevance, faculty and student quality, infrastructure, financial stability, among other. With this accreditation our responsibility has become many manifold. And indeed this is a huge opportunity for us to go global," added Chattopadhyay.
