Five Year AMBA Re-accreditation

Newcastle University Business School has been awarded a further five-year accreditation for its MBA programme, by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the maximum period that can be awarded.

The AMBA accreditation is widely acknowledged as the gold standard for MBA programmes, and the re-accreditation confirms that the School remains in an elite group of business schools globally that hold accreditations by all three international standard setting bodies: AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB.

Professor Sharon Mavin, director of Newcastle University Business School said: “We are extremely passionate about our MBA programme. In June, we hosted a weekend of celebrations to mark 30 years of AMBA accreditation and it’s a fantastic achievement for the whole MBA team to be re-accredited for a further five years.

“As we focus on educating for the ‘Future of Work’ and ‘Leading on Leadership’ we continue to engage with the supportive feedback AMBA provides to ensure that we attract high-potential individuals to lead and develop organisations and make a positive and responsible contribution to society.” 

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA, said: “AMBA is a truly global business organisation and the only accrediting body that specifically focuses on accrediting MBA programmes. We are very particular about who we accredit. In fact, AMBA accredits only 2% of the world’s entire portfolio of business schools.

“Operating as both an accreditation and membership organisation, AMBA is unique in the postgraduate management field, as we bring together the business leaders of tomorrow with the thought leaders of today. With its five-year reaccreditation, Newcastle University Business School is a valued member of the world’s leading business schools.

“We value working closely with them and AMBA’s MBA members 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.”
