Press Release

Discipline-Targeted Accreditation for Universities

June 1, 2023
Discipline-Targeted Accreditation for Universities

Academik America’s action on the global front of discipline-focused accreditation is quietly yet powerfully resetting the popular understanding of accreditation. This is indicated by their partnership as the exclusive global implementor of the accreditation programs of the World Data Science Initiative (WDSI). Undoubtedly, Academik America's 100% digital process is a big draw for universities as it ensures no disruption and eliminates the need for on-campus audit visits by audit teams.

In Africa and Asia alone, Academik America is helping more than 200 institutions get their technology and computer science departments accredited by global leaders in data science and artificial intelligence standards. Previously limited to local audiences, these institutions are now receiving international recognition and support for their high-quality education standards. This has led to an increase in the employability of their students on a global scale.

Academik America is making powerful changes in the accreditation space on a global scale and is expanding the scope of accreditation beyond traditional disciplines. Using its globally distributed ecosystem, it is helping universities of all hues and sizes in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East get departments accredited by global standards bodies like the Data Science Council of America (DASCA) and the Artificial Intelligence Board of America (ARTiBA) with objective, no-fuss, non-disruptive and speedy implementation of knowledge standards and audit processes.

Academik America’s model is simple but demands a vast apparatus to make things happen. It deploys its unique digital backbone and relationships with international certification bodies to get the best knowledge and education delivery standards across disciplines to flow into local, small, and niche universities at great speed, convenience, and RoI.

Academik America’s recent foray into professional certification and accreditation has helped the company significantly in rapidly expanding its overall capabilities and reaching a point where it is virtually setting up a whole new industry around Accreditation. This is critical because it manages front- and back-end business operations, including logistics, customer experience management, publishing, testing, billing, and invoicing for its client certification bodies.

“We are seeing education around the world change and evolve very rapidly,” says Aariya Goel, Managing Director and the lead of Global Initiatives at Academik America. “Our goal is to empower education institutions and their students for greater success, and we think discipline-focused accreditation is one of the best ways we can do that right now. We are pleased to have assisted numerous institutions in adapting to these challenging times through this enhancement.” Goel continued. As universities face the challenge of declining student enrollment and strive to enhance their educational offerings in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, obtaining accreditation has become crucial. We are prepared to address this need and provide the necessary support.
