Members of AMBA’s visiting accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the widening participation strategy of the School. This was exemplified by the low fees and the wide range of scholarships which were mentioned as a key strength of the School not only in enabling recruitment but in providing a positive and diverse student learning experience.
The panel also commented on the very supportive and engaged network of employers, who spoke very positively about their engagement with the School and the quality of the graduates that they hire. The panel noted the start-up incubator which demonstrated the school’s commitment to entrepreneurship and the success of this could be seen in the companies and jobs created through it.

Our social openness and the outstanding employability of our alumni brings us pride every day.’
The 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
