University of Exeter Business School’s ‘transformative’ MBA programmes receive AMBA re-accreditation

One of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education has reaccredited the University of Exeter Business School’s MBA programmes for a further five years, demonstrating the Business School’s continuing commitment to excellence in management education.

Reaccreditation for The Exeter MBA and the Senior Leader MBA from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) is among the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education.

The rigorous assessment criteria ensure only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve AMBA accreditation.

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited business schools globally, commended the leadership team which were said to be an inclusive, dynamic, and passionate team that is clearly dedicated to the academic and pastoral wellbeing of students.

The panel also mentioned that the Business School has the ability to attract excellent students that become loyal and supportive alumni, and its facilities were said to provide an excellent MBA learning environment.

Professor Alexandra Gerbasi, Dean of the University of Exeter Business School, said: “We are delighted to have been re-accredited by AMBA, which is testament to the University of Exeter  Business School’s unswerving commitment to providing the highest standards of education, and serves as evidence that our approach of delivering MBA programmes that focus on environmental sustainability, technological transformation and responsible leadership is the right way to go about creating leaders for a better world.”

AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and programmes that are accredited are deemed to be the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education.

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said: ‘The University of Exeter Business School is an important part of our global network of the top 2% of business schools globally. The school clearly has great facilities and staff which allows students to have a transformative experience on their MBA journey. I look forward to working with this school closely in the near future.’

The University of Exeter Business School launched its first Master’s programme in 1973, and its first MBA in 1988.
