The University of Salford’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) has been accredited by the world’s leading professional association for postgraduate business studies – the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
The prestigious award has been made only three years after Salford Business School was founded and means that Salford’s qualification is now among a select band of universities around the world with an AMBA-accredited MBA.
As well as Salford, AMBA accredits MBAs offered by 161 business schools in 72 countries and has over 9,000 members in 88 countries.
Salford’s MBA is an intensive 12-month course for people with at least three years experience of management.
Professor John Wilson is the Head of Salford Business School. “It’s great news that our MBA has been accredited by AMBA,” he said.
“It reflects the quality of the teaching, resources and students. AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best MBA programmes throughout the world.
“Most importantly though, the quality that the accreditation endorses and the networking opportunities provided by AMBA will greatly enhance the career prospects of our graduates. With students from all over the world at the School, having an internationally recognised qualification will help them wherever they decide to work.”
