AMDISA’s Quality Assurance Programme

International Quality Assurance
Label for B-Schools

World over, the accepted measure of quality assurance in education is voluntary accreditation. Voluntary Accreditation is a concept of self-regulation which focuses on self-study and evaluation and on the continuing improvement of educational quality. It is both a process and a result. As a process, it is a form of peer review in which an association of schools and colleges establishes sets of criteria and procedures. As a result, it is a form of certification granted by a recognized and authorized accrediting agency.

Consistent with the above, AMDISA as an international not-for-profit association has taken the initiative and evolved its Quality Assurance program – SAQS as a service to the management education profession worldwide. SAQS embodies a professional approach and is designed as an international accreditation system.

    SAQS Quality Assurance Programme is an initiative of AMDISA.
    It is a voluntary, non-governmental process for a comprehensive review of a business school's ability to provide quality programmes of international standards.
    SAQS emerged in an EFMD – AMDISA cooperation through a European Union funded Asia – Link project in 2003–04. It is inspired by EFMD's EQUIS criteria guidelines.
    SAQS is designed as an international quality assurance programme for mentoring, quality improvement, quality assurance and accreditation.
    SAQS looks for a balance between high academic quality and professional relevance through close interaction with the corporate world.
    SAQS Quality Label is a recognition to the institution’s commitment to Quality and Quality Assurance through continuous improvement.
    SAQS involves an overall review of the entire institution and SAQS accreditation is institutional. Institution being defined as the organisational unit providing business and management education.


Institutions desirous of being BENCHMARKED with international quality standards in management education may enroll themselves for accreditation under SAQS. For more on this, please click on the link "ACCREDITATION" in the navigation bar above.
