Only 15% of Higher Education Programmes in India Hold NBA Accreditation, Says Sahasrabudhe

Only about 15% of higher education programmes in India hold National Board of Accreditation (NBA) accreditation, despite the fact that this accreditation offers global recognition through the Washington Accord.

Dr. Anil Sahasrabudhe, the chairman of the NBA, stressed the significance of accreditation for programmes in higher education on Thursday. During the annual convocation of Mumbai University (MU), where more than two lakh degrees were conferred, Sahasrabudhe was in Mumbai as the guest of honour.

He shared an example of how a group of Indians staying in Kuwait was denied visa renewal because their higher education courses were not accredited.

“The NBA has been accorded permanent signatory status of Washington Accord for many years now, allowing international On Thursday, Dr. Anil Sahasrabudhe, the chairman of the NBA, emphasised the need for accreditation for recognition for all NBA-accredited programs. Yet only 15 percent of academic programmes have NBA accreditation.

It is less than the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) accreditation, which evaluates entire academic institutions,” he said, adding how as chairman of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), he encouraged engineering colleges to opt for program accreditation for international recognition.

Sahasrabudhe also elaborated on his vision for the National Education Technology Forum (NETF), a newly formed national body aimed at providing new-age technology-driven educational content. Insisting that it is not a government-run ed-tech platform, Sahasrabudhe said, “Children are not interested in textbooks, but they like cartoons. The educational content in cartoons might be more effective.

There are already so many organisations that are working on developing technology-based, engaging educational content. The NETF will be a single platform where submissions by such organisations will be evaluated and good content will be recommended to different states.”

MU granted 1,75,602 bachelor’s degrees, 31,543 master’s degrees, 270 PhDs, and 23 M. Phil. degrees in addition to the other degrees listed. Six males and twelve girls combined for the 18 gold medals that were given out.

79 220 girls and 96 382 boys received graduation degrees overall, according to data released by MU. There were 12,992 boys and 18,551 girls among those who received postgraduate degrees. According to faculty statistics, there were 56,004 degrees awarded during this year’s convocation ceremony for science and technology faculty, 4,937 degrees for multidisciplinary courses, and 26,645 degrees for arts faculty. Commerce and Management faculty awarded the highest 1,19,559 degrees.

Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr. Ajay Bhamre, Registrar Dr. Sunil Bhirud, and Director, Board of Examination and Evaluation, Dr. Prasad Karande, were all in attendance. MU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Digambar Shirke also attended.
