What topics should be in your MBA?

Global business, responsible management and strategy have emerged as the top priorities for MBA curricula over the next five years.

The results came from a survey of MBA graduates at the Association of MBAs’ (AMBA) Global Leadership Conference held at the University of Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa in February.

The survey also revealed the AMBAssadors’ global outlook with each MBA graduate expecting to work in four different countries during the next five years.

“Our goal is to link the MBA pioneers of accredited, quality business schools all over the world to develop a strong global network that shares the same vision and values,” said Global AMBAssador, Anca Mandruleanu, an MBA student from Kingston Business School.

“The conference has revealed the Global AMBAssadors’ commitment towards responsible, values based leadership and our common engagement to make a change in the business environment across every country.”

The Global AMBAssador Programme is a service offered by AMBA to all accredited business schools to help improve their engagement with alumni, MBA seekers and employers. The aim of the programme, which launched in 2012, is to create a worldwide accredited MBA alumni network championed by the AMBAssadors.

During the year the first group of AMBAssadors have held networking events in their countries and connected online with the MBA and business communities.
