Alliance Manchester Business School in top 1% with triple accreditation

21 Apr 2017

AMBS has this week received a further five years of accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

AACSB

This means Alliance MBS continues to sit amongst the top 1% of business schools globally that enjoys triple accreditation status from EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB. The School has received AACSB accreditation since 2001.

This endorsement follows the initial recommendation for reaccreditation made by the Peer Review Team who visited the School in February.

Head of School, Professor Fiona Devine said: “The reaccreditation is testament to the excellent research and teaching at the School. We must use this firm foothold as we look to the future and address the challenges presented by an extremely competitive market, made ever more complex by unprecedented economic and political uncertainty.”

AACSB provides internationally recognised, specialised accreditation for business and accounting programmes at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level. The AACSB Accreditation Standards challenge post-secondary educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement throughout their business programmes. AACSB Accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognised form of specialised/professional accreditation an institution and its business programmes can earn.
