Announcing our 14th International Accreditation Conference & the 5th Student Instant Case competition in association with Peregrine Global

Business education is experiencing fundamental  changes  in content, delivery & assessment. The pace of  Edu-tech  adoption got a sudden impetus owing to the unexpected occurrence of a global Pandemic. Everyone is innovating and so are the accreditation agencies to cope with the new normal. One thing is quite clear that Business education will never be the same. In continuing with the same theme and keeping in view the ongoing campaign for Digital Transformation of Business Education SEAA Trust, New Delhi is committed to we are  launching our 14th International Accreditation Conference focusing on "Leadership building for the Digital future-the B-school challenge".

The global business leaders are convinced  the technology is no longer the challenge but leadership definitely is. Increasingly the top business schools from around the world are under pressure to tweak their curriculum  to ensure  the passing out batches of student managers are going out equipped with high level of technology exposure and awareness about the challenges ahead.

The traditional MBA curriculum is being  replaced with a forward looking sylabbi that  agile, adaptable and in line with the tectonic shift in business focus.The challenges are many as much of the student cohort are from non-technology  or traditional technology schools rooted in theory with little practice. And many among the faculty also are not trained or are not aware about the  new technologies that are being invented almost on the fly.  

There is much learning to be done and the industry involvement in education is going to be much greater and not less in the future of Business Education.  The old school MBA programmes have to be rewritten and made more practical and new tools with the help of the industry need to be crafted to hone the   MBA graduates  so that they would be able to face the challenges of the digitally transformed businesses. 

In fact the greatest challenge is the  uncertainty of the future  as the technologies are only now maturating and the industry segments like Space, new urban transportation, ocean exploration, Block Chain technology led financial services, Internet based services, Cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3 D Printing, Augmented Reality etc., are posing new challenges and opportunities.

There would be panel discussions on all the three days, agency presentations, short films,  presentations by industry leaders on top of the line technologies and  release of books and weblinks for use by the B-schools leadership, faculty and the students. We expect the three days to be power packed as with every year. Details

Handbook of International Accreditation 11th edition: The must  keep International Accreditation  Handbook's 11th edition would be released at the conference sponsored by Indus Business Academy , Bangalore the official sponsor of the Handbook since its inception. Handbook page. 

Our 13th International Accreditation conference endorsed  the fact that there is no going back and possibly flipped and blended classrooms and lifelong learning may be the  answer for the future.
Edu-tech holds the key and Accreditation, Indian or international, is now more a necessity than an ideal option for acquiring cutting edge quality strategy for an uncertain future.  

Almost 30 speakers from around the world spoke at our conference and agreed that campuses and industry need to understand the digital future and prepare leaders accordingly to steer future industries. Corona might have caused human catastrophe but it also created a new hope for the future of mankind.
