Chandigarh based Aryans Business School (ABS) has become the first B-School in the region to get membership of US-based world’s best accreditation body, ‘Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business’ (AACSB). The membership certificate was granted by Ms. Eileen Peacock, Vice President and chief officer, Asia to Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman, Aryans Business School (ABS) in Singapore at Asian headquarters of AACSB, today
Expressing pleasure on getting the first international membership, Dr. Anshu Kataria said that with the membership of AACSB, Aryans would get a platform to exhibit its talent and leadership in the world. On the one hand, existing students would get benefit in placements, on the other hand, it would give us a platform to tap international market. India is becoming a hot choice for education for the students around the globe. With tough visa norms and the high cost of living, the number of students going to US, Europe, Australia would come down and India would be a preferred destination for education. Targeting Asian and African countries for our MBA and BBA programmes would be now much easier after AACSB membership, told Kataria to this correspondent while speaking over phone from Singapore
It is to be mentioned that world famous Harvard, Wharton, Kellogg London Business School etc are accredited member of this organization. In India, Around 15 Business Schools including S P Jain, XLRI, IIM Calcutta, ISB etc are having the privilege of being a part of this prestigious international body of the world.
It is worth mentioning that Aryans Group started its operations in 2007 under the leadership of young and dynamic entrepreneur Dr. Anshu Kataria. Today Aryans Campus is the largest stand-alone MBA campus in Punjab. The group has already tied up with London School of Management Education (LSME); Fontys University, Netherlands; Outline Systems, USA etc. The group is running five management institutes on Chandigarh-Patiala highway, near Chandigarh. Aryans Business School (ABS) got berth in CAT-2009(India’s biggest MBA entrance exam) about six months back as the Non-IIM member.
