Business Schools In India Offering MBA, PGDM Get Rude Shock From The AICTE

The new rules regarding MBA / PGDM will be applicable from the next academic year (2020-21). India has plethora of business schools which run MBA program from an affiliated University and PGDM Program from the AICTE.

AICTE said the new rule demanding separate infrastructure and resources for MBA and PGDM is in response to criticisms from local inquiry committees (LICs), which inspect the business schools when the colleges apply for AICTE affiliation.

Students have complained that they were troubled and even tricked on many occasion and not able to decipher details share by business schools on faculty, fees and infrastructure. Many business schools in Indian continue to use same faculty and share all infrastructure for PGDM and MBA program courses which technically is incorrect.

“While MBA colleges are affiliated to a particular university, business schools running PGDM courses need no affiliation but the AICTE approval. We have frequently observed that how the LICs are fooled by the business schools about infrastructure and faculty which might be registered for an MBA school but are projected like that of a PGDM course,” said Anil Sahasrabudhe, chairman, AICTE.
