Cardiff Business School has 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.

Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of Cardiff Business School are 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 (AMBA) 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.

In awarding accreditation, members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the School’s commitment to its Public Value strategy, the leadership of the Dean, and the strength of the School’s research. The panel also highlighted the way the School’s research informs its MBA curricula, the executive coaching provided to MBA students, the School’s collegiate culture, and the professionalism of professional services staff.

We are incredibly proud to receive AMBA accreditation and delighted to be joining the AMBA community. This achievement demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the student experience and delivering outstanding and distinctive MBA programmes that reflect our Public Value purpose.

Professor Rachel Ashworth Dean and Head of School

I am delighted to welcome Cardiff Business School to our network of world-leading Business Schools. AMBA is committed to raising the profile and quality standards of business education internationally, for the benefit of Business Schools, MBA students and graduates and alumni, employers, communities and society. I look forward to working with Cardiff Business School to achieve these goals.

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA)
