MBA Development

The AMBA Development Network

The AMBA Development Network is a community of Business Schools working towards achieving AMBA accreditation. The network strives to support these institutions through active desktop reviews, MBA coaching and 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. It 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 it against AMBA accreditation criteria and industry best practices.

Members also receive access to MBA coaching as an add-on, which provides one-to-one guidance from an experienced, AMBA-approved expert with Business School accreditation.

Conference Networking

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 Business School networking opportunities. Members receive discounts on all AMBA conference networking events.

Alongside conference networking, we also manage multiple closed LinkedIn groups where members can share content, such as research, case studies, Business School industry trends and much more.


Members receive access to AMBA’s wealth of resources. This includes bespoke research covering global MBA and Business School industry trends, and video interviews with business professionals covering a wide variety of subjects of interest to Business Schools.

In addition, members can also view 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.

AMBA Accreditation Branding

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 that 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.
