  1. This was informative. On similar lines……Would you be able to guide How do we find out about MBA degrees awarded by foreign universities ( in my case from SCU, Australia) that are being recognised by educational / government authorities like AICTE in India?

    1. AICTE is not responsible for accrediting foreign qualification. The body is AIU. You can look up its website and it states that India and Australia have an MOU for mutual recognition of each others qualifications. You need to also note that it is for qualifications such as Law, Medicine, Dentistry… where we need the recognition of professional bodies and not for MBA.
