About the MBA Employer Award

Every generation, more than one million MBAs graduate from AMBA’s more than 240 accredited schools around the world. This community has the potential to exert a huge and positive influence globally, shaping businesses, government policies, environmental issues and countries’ future wealth creation. 

AMBA’s vision is to bring this Member Community to reality, working closely with thought leaders (our schools) and organisational leaders (our members and the world’s leading employers).

As such, MBA Employer and Business School Partnership Award celebrates the businesses that have taken a proactive, positive and strategic approach to the recruitment and talent development of MBA students and graduates, and those that are effectively working with Business Schools to bridge the gap between business thought and business practice.

This award recognises organisations that share AMBA’s passion and have adopted a proactive, innovative approach to MBA attraction, recruitment, talent management and succession planning.

AMBA will present this accolade to an employer that can demonstrate evidence of innovation and bottom line contribution through the focused recruitment and retention of MBA graduates.
