Macquarie Business School Receives Accreditation from AMBA

Macquarie Business School has officially received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.

All current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of Macquarie Business School are now invited to join AMBA’s global member community of more than 57,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits.

Accreditation from the Association of MBAs represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its 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.

Macquarie Business School was established in 2019 and is the single point of delivery for all business, management and economics teaching and research activities at Macquarie University. The School delivers programmes at undergraduate, post graduate and doctoral levels, as well as providing micro credential courses and executive education.

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the creation of the Global MBA programme at the School. They saw this as an appropriate response to the changing demands of the global MBA market and thought it allowed the School to make the most out of new learning technology.

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 post-graduate 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: “I would like to congratulate Macquarie Business School on achieving AMBA accreditation.
