SBS-EM re-accredited by the Association of MBAs and by EQUIS for 3 more years!

Last December, the School was visited by an international committee of experts, chaired by Dr Mark Oakley, academic consultant and assessor, for a full re-assessment of its Executive MBA.
We are delighted to announce that AMBA accreditation has been awarded for three years.

“Tangible, authentic, high quality”

The School broadly provided evidence that its programmes are designed to meet the key outcomes of a high quality MBA. Assessors were impressed by the diversity and quality displayed by the MBA programme (faculty and students) and the integration of the Career Advancement Programme into its design. They also pointed out the enthusiasm and dynamism of the new leadership that is of great benefit to the future development of the School. The Peer Review Report provides great perspectives for improvement that the School has already started to implement.
Last March, was audited by an international committee of experts, commissioned by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and chaired by Prof. Peter Wolnizer, former Dean of Sydney Business School.
We are proud to announce that EQUIS Accreditation was granted for a further three years.
Among commendations of the Peer Review Team (PRT) are: comprehensive portfolio of the School’s programmes, faculty expertise, research excellence, strong entrepreneurial culture, outstanding corporate and alumni connections, and student-led initiatives.
The visit rolled out smoothly and the PRT was impressed with the high degree of professionalism and support services provided by the administrative and technical staff.

Based on the School’s Self-Assessment Report, visit and meetings with the staff and authorities, as well as the Student Report, the Peer Review Report provides a number of significant and constructive areas for improvement. Since then, the leadership team has already started strengthening the School’s comprehensive strategy and positioning. The next audit will be in 2021.
