The Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the leading authorities on post-graduate business education, renewed IE Business School’s accreditation, highlighting its excellence in management education and opening membership benefits to students and alumni.

Accreditation from AMBA represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-caliber programs achieve AMBA accreditation.

“IE Business School has shown that it is committed to excellence in higher management education,” said Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs. “It is successfully using technology to enhance student experience and ensuring that the learning experience is international, interdisciplinary and relevant to the needs of the market.”

Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current students and alumni of IE Business School are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of some 50,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits.

AMBA’s visiting accreditation panel praised IE’s focus on entrepreneurship, innovation and technology, as well as the pedagogical and digital teaching methods in programs it said were responsive to market needs.

“Innovation and entrepreneurship are key values at AMBA and these values are strongly represented at IE Business School.”

“I look forward to working with the school in the future to see how they continue to innovate and change the face of higher management education,” Wilson said.

Nine IE Business School MBA and executive MBA programs, as well as the Master in Management, are accredited by AMBA.

“IE is an institution where you can push initiatives, drive your own vision and generate impact, not only on the people around you but the wider community. The members of IE’s community possess a rare combination of character, ambition and readiness to deal with the unexpected; all of them are committed to making a positive difference in the world,” said IE Business School Dean Martin Boehm.
