Milpark Business School receives AMBA re-accreditation
Milpark Business School officially received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of Milpark Business School are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of more than 57,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits.
Accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation.
Milpark Business School is primarily based in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Business School is one of five Schools within Milpark Education, which is a private, higher education institution. AMBA accredits the contact and distance learning MBAs at the School.
Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the School’s ability to create brand loyalty, which has led to several of the students being repeat customers.
The panel also mentioned how well the School had dealt with the pandemic, particularly noting the high-quality online platform which was used to support interaction and engagement at the School during Covid-19.
‘We are extremely proud of receiving re-accreditation from AMBA, which is testament to our dedication to excellence in management education and positively impacting the careers and lives of our students. It is an honour to be part of the global network of world class Business Schools, and we look forward to actively participate to shift the frontiers of management education,’ said Dr Cobus Oosthuizen, Dean, Milpark Business School.
AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.
Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said: "Congratulations to everyone at Milpark Business School for this successful re-accreditation. The School is an important part of our global network of world class Business Schools. I look forward to continuing to work closely with this impactful Business School in the future."
