HKBU School of Business awarded five-year re-accreditation by AMBA

26 Jan, 2018
The School of Business of the Hong Kong Baptist University has been recognised for its world-class MBA (Master of Business Administration) and Master of Science in Business Management (MScBM) programmes and awarded reaccreditation for five years by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) – the maximum award period.

AMBA accreditation is based on a detailed assessment and benchmarking of programmes against the AMBA standards, covering curriculum design, quality of teaching and learning, and industry connections. The School is commended by the AMBA panel for its collegial environment and caring Faculty, who bring the School’s mission to life in creating a nurturing environment. 

Prof. Ed Snape, Dean of the School, commented: “This award is a significant and impartial endorsement of our longstanding commitment to providing quality business education at the highest global standard. This AMBA re-accreditation retains our position as the only business school in Hong Kong with accreditation from each of the main accrediting bodies, a distinction shared by only 1% of leading business schools worldwide. I'd like to thank Business School colleagues, students, alumni and friends for their hard work and contribution in winning the re-accreditation.”
Dr. Raymond Chan, MBA and MScBM Programme Director added, “This is a remarkable result for several reasons: for potential students, the accreditation provides a credible indicator of international quality; for our graduates, it reaffirms the value of their degree; and for employers, it’s an opportunity to recruit top talent from an accredited school. I’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the rigorous assessment exercise and who contributed to the development of the programmes.”

Setting the highest global standards for postgraduate business education, AMBA is an independent authority, providing accreditation for general management business programmes, including MBA, and Master’s degrees. It accredits the top 2% of business schools in over 70 countries.
