The Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Macau’s MBA programmes receives AMBA re-accreditation

The Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Macau has 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 The Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Macau are invited to join 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 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.

The University of Macau is the only public comprehensive university in China’s Macau Special Administrative Region (SAR) among the 10 higher education institutions in Macau (four of which are public). AMBA accredits the full-time MBA and the full-time EMBA at the school.

The panel commended the unique environment provided by a combination of elements: the solid academic and civic foundations of the University; the school’s opportunities as a bridge to Mainland China and the Greater Bay Area; and the world-class Hengqin Island campus location.

The panel also mentioned the collegiate and cooperative spirit at the institution and the well-coordinated team under the Dean. This was aided by the strong support of the University leadership.

The dean of the business school said, “With our AMBA re-accreditation, FBA continues to be a triple accredited business faculty. This confirms FBA’s dedication in pursuing continuous improvement to provide excellent business education, nurture talents and contribute to the economic development of Macao.

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 AMBA & BGA, said: ‘I would like to congratulate everyone who worked towards this accreditation at the Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Macau. The AMBA re-accreditation shows the quality of the MBA programmes at the school. I look forward to continuing working with this school in the future.’
