AMBA’s Research and Insight Centre aims to provide thought leadership and understanding to the global Business School and wider community. Our in-house team delivers academic business research projects covering a range of qualitative and quantitative methodologies. At AMBA, we strive to understand the current issues and trends within the business management education sector, using our expert knowledge to develop the services we offer.

Some of our regular higher education research projects include:

Application and Enrolment

Conducted annually since 2007, looks into the average number of applications and enrolments around the globe from AMBA-accredited Business Schools. It provides insight into the demographic background of applications and enrolments, where they come from and how the programmes are delivered. 

MBA Careers Survey

AMBA’s Careers Survey looks to measure the experiences and perceptions of recent MBA graduates towards their MBA, how they will apply the skills they have learnt and where they see their career going in the future. It looks to assess the contribution of the MBA and how it affects students’ experiences and career outcomes. 

Views from the Top

This regular academic research project seeks to understand the perspectives of Deans and other leaders within Business Schools globally. It looks to understand key issues that are occurring within the sector, how they are impacting on Business Schools and ways in which they are responding.
