The Graduate School of Strategic Management of Chuo University, Japan, has officially received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the world’s leading authority on post-graduate management education, demonstrating its commitment to excellence in business education.

Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of Chuo University are invited to join in AMBA’s global member community of more than 60,000 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.

Chuo University is one of the oldest and most prestigious private universities in Japan and has a strong and established reputation for specialising in law. It was founded in Tokyo in 1885 under the original name of English Law School. AMBA has recently accredited the University’s Part-time MBA.

The mission statement of the School is: “We foster strategic leaders who turn knowledge into action through reflection to change the world.”

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel commended the School’s focus on students, and particularly the welfare of students.

The panel also noted the strength of the alumni community, which has successful graduates in corporate positions across Japan. It also noted how supportive this alumni community is.

Finally, the panel commended the authentic and collaborative (mostly female) leadership of the School.

Emiko Tsuyuki, Dean of the Graduate School of Strategic Management, said, ‘We are pleased to announce that we have received the AMBA International Accreditation. We have been working towards this accreditation since 2017. We would like to thank everyone involved for their cooperation.

‘Receiving the AMBA accreditation, one of the three major accreditations in the world, is proof of the high international standards of education at the school. At the same time, it is the result of our efforts to build a high-level learning community with our students. We will continue to aim even higher to produce world-class business professionals.’

AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said: ‘I would like to congratulate everyone at Chuo University who worked towards this accreditation.
