ECUST School of Business, East China University of Science and Technology has officially received joint accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Business Graduates Association (BGA), two of the world’s leading authorities on business education.
ECUST School of Business, East China University of Science and Technology is based in Shanghai, China. The school runs a range of programmes at the undergraduate level; academic masters level; professional masters level and PhD level. The school’s vision is “To be a leading business school in China.”
As part of the joint AMBA & BGA accreditation, a panel of assessors comprised of senior business school leaders from across the globe evaluated the school. The panel commended the internationalisation drive at the school, which they thought was visible from the multiple joint projects and programmes, including the joint Sino-Romanian school and the French, US and Australian partnership programmes.
The panel also mentioned the cohesion and collegiality of the entire school’s team and their continuous improvement spirit.
The school’s theoretical foundations and focus on Action Learning, which was seen to create an opportunity to leverage the role of practice and bridge theory with practice was also mentioned by the panel.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current and recent graduates of the school’s MBA and MBM portfolio are invited to join AMBA’s global membership network of approximately 60,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries.
Meanwhile, all undergraduates and alumni from any of the business school’s programmes are invited to join BGA’s individual membership network. Through both these organisations, students and graduates can strengthen a community that acts as a force for good in management thought and practice, through exclusive events and business content.
AMBA & BGA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and the organisation works with senior academics at top educational institutions around the world, to update accreditation criteria continuously and maintain one unique, in-depth and detailed approach.
AMBA & BGA believes accredited schools should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. As such, the accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation and challenges business schools to perform at the highest level continuously.
Prof. Tieju MA, Dean of ECUST School of Business, said: “Receiving the joint accreditation of AMBA & BGA is not only an important recognition for our past achievements but also a great impetus for our future progress. Our school will continue to align ourselves with international standards and keep making innovations in our pursuit of excellence.”
Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA & BGA, said: “I would like to congratulate everyone who worked towards this double accreditation at ECUST School of Business, East China University of Science and Technology. The AMBA accreditation shows the quality of the MBA programmes at the school, while the BGA accreditation shows the commitment the school has to responsible management. I look forward to continuing working with this school in an AMBA capacity and am delighted that this relationship will be added to with this new accreditation by BGA.”
