    Founder : ITM, Group

    Greetings!

    I am Mukesh Dholakia, from Raipur, Chhattisgarh.

    My daughter , SHRADHA DHOLAKIA ( NOW SHRADHA GODA AFTER MARRIAGE) was student of your ITM- Kharghar, Navi Mumbai Institute and did her 2 years MBA course, two years back.

    Now she has been married and lives with an American in New jersey USA. She wants to continue her CPA in USA, for which she sent all her academic qualification papers for a evaluation report of her studies conducted so far to Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (http://www.ece.org)

    ITM, Navi Mumbai was reported by evaluator as :-

    An Institute with no

    ” Regional Academic Accreditation”
    which we requested for a review.

    We enclose herewith a reply received from Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (http://www.ece.org).

    Please inform what to do? My daughter’s career is involved. Please suggest us a way.

    Regards

    Dear Shradha Goda,

    I have received your request to review the results of the evaluation report
    prepared for you (ref# ) by Educational Credential
    Evaluators, Inc.

    I have reviewed the evaluation report, the information which you provided,
    and the information and resources used in preparing your evaluation report.
    Based on this review, I have determined that the conclusions of the
    evaluation report prepared for you correctly convey our judgment.

    We consider only those institutions in India that have official recognition
    from either the University Grants Commission (UGC) or the Association of
    Indian Universities (AIU) to represent the equivalent of an institution
    that has regional academic accreditation in the United States.

    The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is a quality control
    body, but it is not the governmental body in India that confers the
    authority to award degrees.

    Section 22 of the UGC Act states, “[t]he right of conferring or granting
    degrees shall be exercised only by a University established or incorporated
    by or under [1] a Central Act, [2] a Provincial Act or [3] a State Act or
    [4] an institution deemed to be a University under section 3 or [5] an
    institution specially empowered by an Act of Parliament to confer or grant
    degrees.”

    AICTE recognition or accreditation is not one of the five statutory methods
    by which institutions may receive degree-granting authority. Furthermore,
    there is no evidence that Institute for Technology and Management was
    recognized as a degree-granting institution by one of the five statutory
    methods at the time that you graduated. Therefore, in our judgment,
    Institute for Technology and Management is the equivalent of an institution
    in the United States that does not have regional academic accreditation.

    In summary, no change will be made to your evaluation report.

    Thank you.

      AICTE is licencing body and not “quality control body. The understanding of the US Evaluator is wrong

      ITM dies not grant degrees which is known to you. We operate under AICTE which is a Statutory Body having its own status equivalent to UGC

      AIU has recognised the ITM PGDM as equivalent to a Degree granted by any university in India.

      Prof Shelar our Director of Compliance will scan an send you copies of our latest AICTE approval of and also the latest AIU equivalency certification.

      Other bodies such as the World Education Council have verified and certified our status to various US employers and Universities for further education.

      Dear Sri Dholakia
      I understand your problem and also their problem. The US System is that the primary (and mandatory) Academic Accreditation is from the Regional Accreditation body, like for instance NEASC – North Eastern Association of Schools and Colleges. Also there is a Professional Accreditation available for Business Programs such as AASCB, which is not mandatory.
      In India there is no equivalent. The only Accreditation available is Federal, for instance
      – ITM Navi Mumbai is AICTE Approved
      – The PGDM from ITM Navi Mumbai has received “A” Grade from National Academic Accreditation Council (under University Grants Commission)
      – The Program has also received “A” Grade from the National Board of Accreditation
      – The Program has also received “Equivalence to MBA Degree” certification from Association of Indian Universities
      – It is wrong to say AICTE is only a quality control body since
      a. AICTE approval is mandatory even for Univeristy MBA programs
      b. AICTE approval is sufficient for autonomous programs like the PGDM, which is approved by AIU as equivalent to MBA in all respects, for instance to pursue a PhD in any university in the world.
      c. IIM award only a PGDM, and many IIM grads do PhD in US Universities.

      These are the highest accreditations and approvals for any program in India
      I feel that the critical point about ECE is that they are bothered that it is “not a Degree”. They also say that the AIU has authority to confirm it is equivalent to a Degree. While we cannot educate ECE about India, it is their duty to learn from prevailing practices in our country. I suggest that ECE may directly address us so that my Director of Compliance – Prof. J.V. Shelar ( jayshelar@itm.edu) may scan and send relevant documents re NAAC, NBA and AIU

      Ms Shraddha is a brilliant student and she would crack CPA in the first attempt. Our own PGDM and CA are about 10 times tougher than the American CPA!

      With blessings to Shraddha

    Dear sir, I am ITM kharghar finance 2007-2009 pass out, I applied for phd to nit jalandhar. They rejected my application on the ground that according to AIU the PDGM degree is equal to MBA from 2011-2016. I want to know whether my degree is equal to MBA or not, and what proof of equivalence I can produce. I would immensely appreciate your help in this matter.
