Green light from AMBA

The Exeter MBA has received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs International Accreditation Advisory Board for a further five years.

AMBA accreditation is the internationally recognised quality kitemark for an MBA programme and the School is delighted that the Exeter MBA, available in Full-Time, Part-Time and Modular formats has once again received this recognition of quality.

As an AMBA accredited programme, participants on the Exeter MBA programme can be certain that the programme meets certain rigorous criteria, for example:

  • The host school must demonstrate commitment to its MBA programme and the programme itself must be kept up-to-date and relevant to employers' needs;
  • That participants have a minimum of three years work experience at managerial level and academic qualifications suitable for postgraduate study or relevant professional experience for at least eight years. Participants on the Exeter MBA have, on average, nine years of work experience;
  • That at least 75% of the teaching staff have a masters or doctoral level qualification and are actively engaged in research and consulting, at Exeter this figure is 100%.

Professor Richard Lamming, Director of the University Of Exeter Business School commented, “AMBA accreditation represents, in part, a business school’s commitment to its MBA programme because the criteria for accreditation are not easily met. Since the previous accreditation, the Exeter MBA has undergone a significant review, the structure of the programme has been radically altered and a Modular format has been introduced to complement the Full-time and Part-time programmes. We are delighted that the Association of MBAs has once again accredited the Exeter MBA and we see this further justification for having redeveloped the programme.”
