AMBA Development Network

The AMBA Development Network is a community of Business Schools working towards achieving AMBA accreditation, which supports them through active desktop reviews, mentorship, and research.

It is no longer possible to join the ADN, however, Business Schools looking for similar consultative services and accreditation journeys can now sign-up with the Business Graduates Association (BGA).

BGA is AMBA’s latest initiative that takes a holistic approach to Business School accreditation and evaluates the School’s performance in stakeholder impact, social responsibility practices, and continuous learning efforts. For more information about BGA and how to become a member, click here.

Receive an annual desktop review of your MBA, MBM, and DBA degree programmes. The review is a thorough analysis of your portfolio and comes with recommendations on how to improve your portfolio against AMBA accreditation criteria and industry best practice.

Members also receive access to mentorship as an add-on, which provides one-to-one assistance and guidance from an experienced, AMBA-approved Business School expert.


One of the distinct advantages of joining AMBA is the exposure to the industry’s best networking events for Business School Deans, Directors, and professionals. Traditionally hosted in astonishing venues across the world, AMBA’s events provide in-depth sessions on industry trends and developments plus ample opportunities to network. Members receive discounts to all AMBA events.

Alongside events, we provide closed LinkedIn groups for easy networking and sharing of content such as research, case studies, and much more.


Members receive access to AMBA’s wealth of resources, including bespoke research covering the Business School industry, global MBA trends, and video interviews with business professionals covering a wide variety of subjects of interest to Business Schools. Alongside this, members receive access to our award-winning monthly magazine, AMBITION, which highlights developing trends, thought-leadership, and more from AMBA’s community of business schools, MBA students and graduates, and alumni.


Member Business Schools receive the opportunity to join an organisation that has stood by and supported the industry since 1967. This heritage is something we at AMBA are incredibly proud of, and we want our members to feel the same way. We are committed to raising the profile of Business Schools who show progress in their continuous improvement journey.

We offer a full listing on the AMBA Business School search, which is used by prospective MBA students, use of the AMBA brand on your marketing materials, and a feature story of the Business School in AMBITION.
