Birmingham Business School has officially received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the University of Birmingham reports.
The Birmingham Business School offers a range of MBA Programmes; the reaccreditation means staff and students can continue to benefit from free membership of the association, providing them with access to networking events and resources.
AMBA, established in 1967, is a prestigious organisation that assesses the standards of business schools around the world. Their accreditation service sets high standards for postgraduate business degrees globally.
The AMBA website states the ‘international, professionally diverse’ organisation has over 60,000 members. It aims to ‘share insights’ and ‘create business networking opportunities’ around the world.
During the accreditation process, members of the AMBA accreditation panel spoke to current students who discussed their experience of the business school. The panel commended the quality of the MBA courses and the extra events (such as skills workshops and networking) provided by the Birmingham Business School, as well as citing Gatsby, the hearing aid dog, as a reason for their accreditation.
Professor Edgar Meyer, Dean of Birmingham Business School, described himself as ‘immensely proud’ of the accreditation, calling it ‘a testament to our commitment to excellence’.
‘We are honoured to be part of AMBA’s global network, which will provide our current and past students with opportunities for networking, accessing thought leadership, and developing their careers,’ said Meyer. ‘This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our students, faculty, and staff.’
Dr Cristina Sandbrook, Director of the Executive MBA programme, explained that the result acts as a ‘marker for excellence in postgraduate business education’.
‘We are honoured to stand among the world’s leading institutions and will continue to empower future business leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to excel in today’s dynamic global landscape,’ said Sandbrook.
