The value of accreditation

AMBA accreditation is awarded to the best programmes internationally and denotes the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education. Students, business schools, graduates and employers all recognise it as a gold standard.

Students: Accreditation is an assurance of quality

For students, the decision to embark on an MBA represents a major commitment, in terms of time, effort and money. In a crowded education market, our accreditation provides a reliable list of meticulously tested programmes and ensures that students' investments are rewarded with the finest business education available - and will certainly have a demonstrable impact on a career path.

Employers: Acquire future business leaders

Employers looking to attract the best managers and future business leaders know that graduates of our accredited programmes will have received the best quality and currently 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 worldwide recognition and kudos. The number of MBA qualifications available globally is in the thousands, but only a small percentage could achieve accreditation if they were submitted to our process. AMBA accreditation identifies programmes as the best available, and the developmental nature of our process often helps business schools spot potential shortcomings. We provide a comprehensive report detailing recommendations for potential future improvements. Find out more about becoming a AMBA accredited business school.
