Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the diversity on the MBA programme, both in terms of nationalities and, increasingly, gender. The panel noted that this diversity was seen in the strong recruitment the programme had experienced during the pandemic.
The School was also able to provide the programme a distinctive platform in an increasingly competitive national and global market. This came under the strapline, ‘The Geneva Advantage’, with Geneva being a prime location to study as it is a hub for international organisations.
Professor Markus Menz, Dean of the Geneva School of Economics and Management, said: ‘I am delighted that our Executive MBA program has been awarded with a re-accreditation by the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.
