Every year, the MBA Awards are a celebration of the very highest achievements in leadership, accomplished by the most remarkable Business Schools which form the AMBA global network and their eminent MBAs. 

On 20 January 2017, in London we will recognise the talents and accomplishments of the most outstanding and inspiring Business Schools, start-ups with MBA founders, and MBA students. 

For the first time, this year we are excited to announce two new awards rewarding the MBA employers with the highest level of dedication to the recruitment and talent development of MBA students, and the most inspiring lifelong academic achievements of our Business School staff.
