Schulich School of Business officially received re-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 Schulich School of Business are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of more than 57,000 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.
Schulich School of Business is primarily based in Toronto, Canada. The Business School is one of 11 Faculties within York University and was founded in 1966. AMBA accredits the MBA and the Executive MBA at the Business School.
Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the School’s mission, vision and focus on ethics, CSR and EDI, commenting that these were, ‘laudable, authentic and tangible’.
The panel also noted that all the stakeholders met during the assessment were proud to be associated with Schulich and what it stands for. Faculty met by the panel were particularly noted as being committed to the success of the School.
‘We are delighted that Schulich has been re-accredited by AMBA, one of the world’s premier accreditation bodies,’ said Detlev Zwick, Interim Dean of the Schulich School of Business. ‘AMBA accreditation affirms that our School continues to meet the highest standards with regard to learning and employability outcomes, as well as real-world impact.’
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 congratulate Schulich School of Business on this re-accreditation. This School is an important part of our international network and I look forward to continuing to work with this School closely in the future.’
