Texas (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Bangalore University, one of the finest educational universities of India, has been granted Candidacy Status by IAO, the world’s leading international accreditation agency. The University is now entitled to display its candidacy status on its relevant official documents.
Lately, Indian institutions have started realizing the importance of improving their educational standards to compete with their international counterparts. The education sector of India is growing fast and an increasing number of students are opting to study at educational institutions or work for companies outside their native country. Indian educational institutions are seeking IAO’s international accreditation to show that they maintain high educational standards. IAO is an international quality assurance agency that grants accreditation to traditional, non-traditional, and vocational education providers. International Accreditation by IAO ensures that the degrees an institution offers are easily accepted by another institute in a different country. Besides, these degrees are also recognized and accepted by well-known companies and employers globally.
The University has been awarded Candidacy Status after the IAO’s Evaluation Commission assessed the University's institutional quality, academic programs and institutional integrity. The University was able to fully comply with the requirements set forth in the IAO’s accreditation application forms. It provided sufficient proof of the high educational standards of the institution. The information about the University’s infrastructure, academic environment, physical and human resources, and its supporting systems such as its library and computer facilities were also evaluated in the application forms.
The Vice Chancellor N. Prabhu Dev, at Bangalore University remarked: “Students who join Bangalore University with its international educational experiences will now benefit from belonging to an IAO accredited institution. We are proud to have acquired this historic achievement.”
The University of Bangalore is a welcome addition to the IAO’s long list of accredited institutes and universities across the world. “We would like to congratulate the management of University of Bangalore for all the hard work they put in and the documents they submitted to ensure that they get IAO’s Candidacy Status,” said IAO’s Evaluation Commission Member, Professor Brayden De Satg. He further added that the University’s programs offer world class educational programs to ensure that the students reach their full potential. “They are now better positioned to help students develop into highly capable leaders who can effectively realize their goals and contribute to the country’s growth.”
