For immediate release 

Milpark Business School, part of Stadio Multiversity in Cape Town, South Africa, has officially received accreditation from The Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the leading authorities on postgraduate business education.

AMBA’s rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curricula, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation. AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach and we work with senior academics at top educational institutions around the world to continuously update accreditation criteria and maintain one unique, in-depth and detailed approach. 

AMBA believes accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in postgraduate management education and as such the accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation and challenges Business Schools to continuously perform at the highest level.

AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best postgraduate management programmes. AMBA accredits the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Business Management (MBM) and Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) courses in only the top 2% of the world’s Business Schools.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent alumni of Milpark Business School are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of 38,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of perks and benefits.

Milpark Business School empowers and equips current and future leaders through business education to effectively and efficiently manage in an age of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Its responsive and flexible learning solutions are grounded on the premises of relevant and quality tuition, service and support excellence, and dynamic partnership with industry.

All the School’s programmes, from the MBA through to short courses, are delivered via classroom learning, online learning and distance learning.

Cobus Oosthuizen, Dean of the Business School, said:, ‘In joining the top 2% of the world’s Business Schools with AMBA accreditation, we are demonstrating to the market that the quality, relevance and impact of our MBA are up there with the best in the world. This is an achievement we are very proud of, and the sought after AMBA accreditation also serves to recognise our team’s professionalism and commitment to world-class postgraduate management education.’

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA, added: ‘I want to congratulate Milpark Business School on its accreditation and look forward to working closely with colleagues at the School – as well as its MBA students and graduates – to ensure outstanding postgraduate management education continues to be the top priority for employers, governments, and ambitious executives who will become the global business leaders of the future.

‘With its accreditation, the School joins a group of the world’s leading Business Schools, as AMBA continues to grow across Africa, building a network of the highest-quality Business Schools across the region.’
