Internal Quality Assurance Cell

Durgadevi Saraf Institute of Management Studies established its Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) on 6th January 2016.


The establishment of IQAC was an important and significant step taken by DSIMS in pursuing long-term quality assurance standards.


Since the IQAC is an integral part of the institute, the cell aspires and endeavours to realise the goals of Quality Enhancement by developing a rigorous system of consistent and continuous improvement in the functioning of the institute. This is done by maintaining and enhancing quality standards in teaching, learning and evaluation.


IQAC also serves as an effective and efficient mechanism for internal coordination and monitoring, besides fostering a culture of research among faculty and students.


The mission of DSIMS is “To create a culture for academic excellence, to emphasise on social sensitivity and to inculcate a global mind-set amongst students”. In sync with this IQAC has worked diligently with the institute administration and other committees by offering valuable suggestions and actionables, geared towards the over-arching objective of consistently maintaining the highest standards in imparting education. To that end, IQAC is an important step forward towards excellence through Faculty Development Programs, interventions aimed at enhancing the employability quotient of students, feedback analysis for quality sustenance and overall improvement in teaching, learning and research.


Some of the Best Practices promoted by IQAC at DSIMS include the following:

  • Academic Council and Board of Studies
  • Immersions – Rural and International
  • Industry Institute Partnership Cell (IIPC)
  • LIM / MIM
  • Special Engagement Program
  • Institute Social Responsibilities
  • Entrepreneurship Cell
  • Mentoring
  • Blended Pedagogy


IQAC promotes and encourages research in an enabling environment, for our Faculty, through participation in conferences and symposia and by organising Conclaves for students on future-oriented themes.


Thus IQAC works towards the attainment of the DSIMS Vision: “To be one of the preferred B-schools in India by developing socially sensitive business professionals with a global mind-set.”
