Ahmedabad University initiated its accreditation process with the National Council for Assessment and Accreditation (NAAC) in 2019. We were audited by the Academic and Administrative Audit of the Gujarat Knowledge Consortium, a government of Gujarat initiative, in 2015. We have also initiated the process of accreditation with Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACBS), the premier American body for Business School accreditation.

The University has prepared a 15-year strategic plan with a focus on expansion of Schools and Centres along with their programmes leading to deepening of academic interventions. At the core of the strategy is the aim of creating a serious research-driven university with specific milestones defined for the next 5, 7 and 10 years.

Our strategy will be driven by a set of institutional pillars, namely,

  • Student Centricity: to enhance the student-experience so as to help them learn better and contribute better to the society; and this is an aspect which needs distinct attention in Indian institutions
  • Impact through Research: to engage with the challenges that the society faces and develop good theory to solve them, advance the field of knowledge;
  • Congregation of the Meritorious: to recruit students, staff and faculty globally who are highly capable, sought after and will help us deliver our goals;
  • High Performance Organisation: to develop an organisation that is responsive, outcome oriented, innovative and create benchmarks in academic administration; and
  • Experimentation: to continuously test assumptions and perceptions; to disrupt and seek a higher challenge as soon as an experiment succeeds.
