How to check the AICTE approval status of a Business School

Despite of awareness and regular announcements by UGC and AICTE, several students fail to understand the importance of AICTE approval. For technical and management courses the AICTE approval is like a hallmark, while joining any Business School for your MBA programme please make yourself satisfied by checking the Institute’s credibility. Follow the below steps to check the AICTE approval status of any Business School.

  • Visit AICTE official website


  • Go to the Tab MIS/Reports (fourth tab)


  • In the same tab scroll down to Approved Institutions (as shown above)
  • On the corresponding right menu select Management
  • List of states will be displayed
  • Select the state where the Business School is situated
  • Example take Karnataka


  • You will get the list of MBA colleges in Karnataka
  • Hit Ctrl F simulataneously
  • A search box appears, type the name of the Business School or some part of the name
  • Example to know the status of NITTE School of Management, you can type NITTE in the search box


This way the search can be simple, some Institutes spellings may be different so typing full name mayn’t show the Institute in the list. So search part of the name and scroll the arrow to see all the Institutes shown by the Find (CTRL F). In the example we are searching for NITTE School of Management, the Institute however is seen under NITTE Education Trust School of Management. We can confirm that NITTE School of Management is approved by AICTE. In the same tab there is a list of Unapproved Institutes also.
