With rapid expansion of management education after 1994, the need for maintaining quality of education became imperative. Ministry of Human Resource Development, AICTE and NBA, etc., are the regulatory agencies for deciding bench marking and ensuring quality assurance in management education. At present, Indian B – Schools are of different shades. There are IIMs and other super – league management schools with global standard of quality. On the other hand, there are also business schools which seriously lack quality. In spite of growth in access, however, with more than 20 crore population in age group of 17 to 25 years, the country needs much higher number of managements schools. More over, India has potential to export education but contrary to it, due to lack of access, every year about 1,40,000 students go to foreign countries for higher education, draining out $ 4 billion foreign exchange per year. It shows the need to promote quality management institutions in India rapidly.
