The Main Accreditation Services

AMBA (Association of MBAs)

is a UK-based organisation developed in 1967 to examine only the content of an MBA programme. Unlike the other two, it focuses on the programme itself and not the school. Thus, it is common for business programmes to have AMBA accreditation alongside another standard.

EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System)

was launched in 1997 to characterise the European approach to management education.

AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International

was founded in the US in 1916 and began its accreditation function with the first adoption of standards in 1919. It has continued to evolve by including new measures for business schools through rigorous review.
