Best Business School Partnership 2024

The Best Business School Partnership award recognises business schools that share AMBA & BGA’s passion for building networks and have adopted a proactive, innovative approach to strategic collaboration.

It is open to any business school working strategically and collaboratively with (for example) another school / group of schools, an employer, a consultant, education partner or technology provider, a social impact group, an individual, a charity, or another organisation.


  • AMBA-accredited and BGA members, validated and accredited business schools are invited to nominate themselves if they are eligible, based on the Award Criteria  
  • When nominating a partnership, please ask the partner organisation’s permission first.  


  • Ineligible entries may be disqualified at any phase of the competition without notification 
  • Late submissions will be ineligible 
  • Incomplete submissions will be ineligible 

Award Criteria:  

  • A clear narrative that demonstrates why the strategy was implemented  
  • How the partnership is having an impact  
  • Describe the strategic link the business school has with the partner organisation  
  • Evidence that the partnership supports the values and purpose of the business school 
  • An outline of how the partnership and development strategy ties in with the goals of both organisations – it should be wider and more innovative than simply placing students in jobs, or selling a product, for example 
  • Evidence of success: how it has strengthened the position of both partners 

Award format 

Shortlisted Schools will be required to provide a school biography, logo (jpeg and eps), partner’s logo and bio, and answers to why they should win this award which we will use for marketing purposes.
