CNBC TV18's 'Uncovered' had a feature on Indian business schools offering foreign degrees without AICTE approval.
IIPM and Rai are among the 36 Indian B schools who were issued notices by AICTE for offering 'foreign degrees' to students without getting the necessary green signal from the council.
In their defence, both IIPM and Rai claim that they are not offering any technical course - they are offering programs in planning and entrepreneurship.
In which case it is not clear why these programs use the term 'MBA' in their advertisements (MBA being classified as a technical subject coming under purview of AICTE).
Why not offer 'MPE' (Master in Planning & Entrepreneurship!)
