Accreditation

Accreditation

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 (AACSB), 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.

Centre of Excellence
The Government of Gujarat has recognised Ahmedabad University as a Centre of Excellence (CoE). This recognition is part of a flagship initiative of the Government of Gujarat to select the best universities in the state and provide them with greater autonomy and regulatory freedom to allow them to achieve global standards in education. Ahmedabad University was assessed for its achievements in research, infrastructure, and quality of faculty among a host of other parameters by a high powered committee prior to the granting of this recognition.

Ahmedabad University in its strategy plan for the CoE has committed to increase financial support for students, enhance diversity of its student body, and also set up special research support mechanisms to usher in a globally benchmarked education.

UGC 12(B)
University Grants Commission has recognised Ahmedabad University under section 12(B) of the UGC Act, a recognition given to select research universities. Ahmedabad University is one of the very few private research universities in the country to have received this recognition, after a detailed assessment of the innovative research and teaching ecology at Ahmedabad University by an expert committee appointed by the UGC. The University is now eligible to receive research and development grants, projects, and scheme-specific support from the University Grants Commission.
