Renowned Miami Herbert Business School receives AMBA-accreditation

The University of Miami Patti and Allan Herbert Business School has officially received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.

Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of Miami Herbert Business School 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.

Miami Herbert Business School was founded in 1929 and is one of the 12 schools and colleges at the University of Miami.  The School is globally renowned for its research capabilities. AMBA has recently accredited a wide range of MBA programmes at the School.

The School’s mission is ‘to develop transformative scholarship and principled leaders for business and society’.

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel commended the commitment at the School to teaching in small class sizes. They believed that this provided a high-touch experience for MBA students.

The panel also noted that there had been a significant and impressive investment in faculty size and the research capability at the School.

Stakeholders who met with the assessment panel during their visit also mentioned that they greatly appreciated the personal touch brought by the Dean of the School. His close involvement with all areas of the School was seen to strengthen engagement with internal and external colleagues.

Finally, diversity was noted as being a key differentiator for the School and for its MBA programmes.

‘This latest accreditation from AMBA recognizes continuing progress at Miami Herbert,’ said John Quelch, Dean of Miami Herbert. ‘At Miami Hebert, we cultivate a premier learning community that values diversity, technology, a global mindset, and sustainable prosperity. We don’t just talk the talk, or only walk the walk—we shape the future.’

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 am delighted to welcome Miami Herbert Business School into our network of the top 2% of Business Schools globally. This School is internationally known for its quality of teaching and research.

‘I would like to congratulate everyone at the Business School who worked towards this accreditation and I have enjoyed meeting with Dean John Quelch and his team at our Latin America Deans and Director Conference in Cartegena.’
