As the professor of Marketing Communication basks in the glory of being elected as the President of the prestigious council, his institute also takes pride in this latest development.
The organization is the regional division of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, US. The main aim for the ACBSP is to promote its accreditation through 17 countries in South Asia; right from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan up to Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and more. Thus the reach of the council is obvious and it does its best through several initiatives all around the year to improve the quality of business education in these countries.
Prof. Thevannoor will take the office of the President of the council to bring a difference to the level of management education in these countries. The man not only has years of experience in academics but he has also attended several National and International conferences that revolve around management and accreditation. Hence he seems to be the apt choice for the role that he will be playing for the council.

ACBSP is all about establishing, recognizing and propagating educational standards that improve the level of management education.” Accreditation from the council is seen as recognition for business schools and programs that keep up with the standards. With his experience, Prof Thevannoor is expected to raise the bar further for the council.
