A thriving International Exchange Programme ensures that one out of every five students enrolled for PGPM & PGP-HR gets an opportunity to study abroad. Other programmes such as the PGP-IM, NMP (executive PGPM), PG Diploma in Public Policy and Management, and several MDPs each have a significant international component. Under various exchange programmes, nearly 150 students from MDI go abroad. The number of international students studying at MDI campus has also increased over the years and MDI's exchange programme is one of the largest in the country. MDI insists on partnering with only the top business schools of any country with a stipulation that the partnering B-School has quality as well as an extensive international agenda of its own for its activities.
What started as a student exchange programme has additionally evolved into an entire gamut of academic exchange that includes exchange of distinguished faculty, research collaboration, development of academic materials, and collaborative work on projects of international scope.
MDI was the first Indian business school and second in Asia to be accredited by AMBA, London, UK. MDI is also accredited by the South Asian Quality Assurance System (SAQS).
