Become an accredited business school

We believe that MBA, DBA and MBM programmes should be of the highest standards and reflect changing trends and innovation in postgraduate management education.

We work with Business Schools to accredit MBA, DBA and MBM programmes globally, against defined criteria and we include input from all stakeholders including business school staff, students, graduates and employers. Accredited programmes are also reviewed at least every five years, to ensure that quality is maintained and continuous improvement is achieved.
