The Association of MBAs (AMBA)


The Association of MBAs (AMBA) is the international impartial authority on postgraduate business education, established in 1967 by a small group of business graduates with the aim to raise the profile of business education and the MBA qualification in UK and Europe.


•Our accreditation service is the global standard for all MBA, DBA and MBM programmes. We currently accredit programmes at over 200 business schools in more than 70 different countries.

•We are the only professional membership association connecting MBA students and graduates, accredited business schools and MBA employers in more than 110 countries.

•Through our research centre, the Evidence & Ideas Lab, we explore global trends and thought leadership in management education.

•We work with our corporate partners around the world to offer unparalleled networking opportunities and access to a global database of knowledge and talent.

•We provide our accredited business schools and their student and alumni with exclusive access to a range of services and benefits, including world-class events.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be recognised internationally as the authoritative voice in postgraduate management education.

The achievement of our vision depends on four strategic objectives which will bring together our key stakeholders: business schools, MBA students and alumni and employers.

Specifically, we will:

•Continue to deliver a world-class accreditation service focusing on the quality assurance of postgraduate general management programmes at the top tier business schools

•Strengthen our collaborative relationship with our accredited business schools, providing them with relevant insights, intelligence and networks to give them the advantage in a competitive environment

•Support our exclusive global network of MBA students and graduates and deliver services that will assist them in their professional development and lifelong learning

•Engage with business and MBA employers, building awareness of the Association’s reputation, the benefits of accreditation and our professional network

Our Values

•We provide quality in everything we do; in the criteria we set, in the way we conduct our services and activities and in our day to day delivery.

•We have integrity: we are fair, straightforward and transparent in our processes.

•We are impartial: representing no particular vested interest and offering a reliable and trustworthy resource for information and services relevant to postgraduate business education.

•We are collaborative in the way we work together as a team and in the way we work with others to be able to grow.

•We are global and we reflect this in everything we do – from our staff team to our outreach: members all over the world, global events, offices in Latin America, China and India, international pages on our new website.

•We are stakeholder-focused: the stakeholder is at the centre of what we do, whether it is the public we are offering a service to, our individual members, our business schools, employers or the press.
