In 2006, Association of MBAs (AMBA, UK) had awarded its accreditation to MDI's PGPM, PGP-HR and NMP and consequently MDI became the first Indian B-School with Global Accreditation (AMBA, UK). Now in February 2011, in recognition of MDI's rising profile as a B-School with global standards, all its 6 Programmes namely PGDM, PGP – HR, PGP - IM, Executive Management Programme (EMP), National Management Programme (NMP), and Executive PGDBM (Energy Management) have been awarded accreditation by AMBA, UK, making it the first B-School in India to have received this coveted stamp of global approval. This brings all Programmes of MDI in the international league. The Institute has partnerships in several regions of the world and has a thriving exchange programme with many leading international institutions.
MDI nurtures a vision to be a truly global business school. As economic networks gained eminence over geographic boundaries, MDI realized the emerging role of international markets and the need for B-Schools to groom managers with international perspective. The process of building linkages was started more than a decade ago. As on date, MDI has partnerships in almost every continent of the globe. In fact MDI is the first B-School from India to partner with countries in Africa which reflects on MDI's efforts to be a truly global B-School.
MDI was the first Indian business school in Asia to be accredited by AMBA, London, UK. MDI is also accredited by South Asian Quality Assurance System (SAQS)
