The value of accreditation

AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best programmes.

Students, Higher Education Institutions, Graduates and Employers recognise that AMBA accreditation is an assurance of quality.

Students: Accreditation is an assurance of quality

For students, the decision to take an MBA represents a major commitment, both in terms of time and money. In a crowded and complex market, our accreditation provides a reliable list of meticulously tested programmes and ensures that students' investments are rewarded with the finest business education available, which will have a demonstrable impact on their careers.

Employers: Acquire future business leaders

Employers looking to acquire the best managers and future business leaders know that graduates of our accredited programmes have received the highest quality and most relevant management education. To recruit a graduate from one of our accredited programmes is to recruit top talent.

Business Schools: International credibility and status

Accreditation gives business schools international credibility and status. The number of MBA qualifications available worldwide is now in the thousands, but only a small percentage of these would achieve accreditation if they were submitted to our rigorous international criteria. AMBA accreditation identifies programmes as the best available. The developmental nature of our accreditation process often helps business schools spot potential shortcomings in their programmes, and our comprehensive and consultative report outlines recommendations for improving provision in the future.
