AVT Business School’s Executive MBA Program is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the three international accreditation agencies for business schools—and the most prestigious in evaluating quality MBA programs.
AMBA accreditation places AVT Business School among a small number of high-quality schools. AVT is only the second Danish Business School with the prestigious AMBA accreditation.
During the accreditation process, AMBA commended AVT Business School on the following:
- High-quality faculty members, drawn from leading business schools
- Intense dedication of faculty to the school
- Superior quality of students and graduates
- Excellent corporate liaisons and a high level of support from Danish employers of all sizes
- An attractive learning and social environment
- A highly professional and capable staff
“The AMBA accreditation team commended AVT on the fast progress we have made in developing a credible Executive MBA program, which was launched in 2005. They noted the enthusiastic students and alumni they met at AVT as well as our high-caliber, committed faculty,” says AVT Business School’s Dean, Ronald Tuninga, who joined the school in September of 2011.
The Association of MBAs (AMBA) was established in 1967 by several alumni of well-known American business schools who had returned to the United Kingdom. In those days, no alumni organizations of individual schools existed in the UK or continental Europe. In the 1980s, AMBA decided to start accrediting MBA programs to help prospective MBA students in choosing a good-quality MBA program.
Today, AMBA is an international accreditation body and the fastest growing accreditation agency in terms of our international coverage. They currently accredit business schools in every continent. AMBA now accredits MBA, M.Sc. in Management, and DBA programs at approximately 200 business schools worldwide, including London Business School and INSEAD.
More than 30 years later only 200 MBA programs in 70 countries worldwide, and only two Danish business schools, have been able to meet the high standards of the AMBA accreditation. Two hundred MBA programs may sound like a large number but in reality less than 1% of the more than 20,000 MBA programs offered worldwide are accredited.
