Stockholm Business School, Stockholm University 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 EMBA students and recent EMBA alumni of Stockholm Business School 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.
Stockholm Business School was established in 1962 and enrols around 3,500 students each year. The School delivers four bachelor programmes and seven Masters programmes in addition to their EMBA and doctoral programme. AMBA accredits the EMBA programme at the School, which was established in 2011.
Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the Schools commitment to research, which was seen to be well integrated into teaching.
The EMBA was seen to be valued by students, alumni and employers. The panel noted the responsiveness of EMBA administrators and faculty in response to EMBA participant work, which they thought was impressive by international standards. They also commended recent investments in campus facilities for professional education which demonstrated a strong commitment to the EMBA and executive education delivery.
The values of sustainability and social commitment were mentioned by the panel as ingrained into the EMBA, and these values were seen to align with those of the university.
Maria Frostling, Head of School at Stockholm Business School, commented: ‘SBS is once again delighted to receive AMBA accreditation for its Executive MBA programme. The award reflects the tremendous work that has gone into producing education and research of the very highest quality at the School. We’re especially pleased that the School’s work in the area of executive development is recognised by AMBA and that SBS continues to take its place among leading providers in this area’.
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.
