We are delighted to announce that we have officially received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world's leading authorities on postgraduate business education.

This re-accreditation demonstrates our continued commitment to excellence in management education. The rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation.

"We are delighted with this re-accreditation", said Professor Wendy Loretto, Dean of the Business School. "Our MBA programmes are a key part of the School, signalling our commitment to world-leading, post-experience education. Working closely with AMBA assures the highest standards of quality for all our students and alumni."

Members of AMBA's accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the School's research-informed teaching and the emphasis on interdisciplinary learning. Also mentioned by the panel was the School's swift adaptations to its programmes due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in postgraduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said:

Congratulations to the University of Edinburgh Business School on this re-accreditation. This prestigious School is part of our select network of Business Schools globally. I am very much looking forward to working with this School in the future.

Our AMBA accreditation allows for current MBA students and recent MBA alumni to join AMBA's global member community of more than 60,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis. This membership means they can enjoy a variety of benefits including networking opportunities, thought leadership, and career development.
