The RU MBA programme accredited by AMBA for the second time


The RU MBA programme has been awarded the AMBA accreditation, for the second time. AMBA (Association of MBAs) accredits MBA programmes around the world. The aim of AMBA is to increase the quality of postgraduate business education.

This is the second time the quality of the RU MBA is affirmed by the association. There are around 25 thousand MBA programmes taught world-wide but only 200 or so out of this great number has received the accreditation.

The process of receiving the AMBA accreditation involves publishing an in-depth report on the programme and its courses and hosting a committee at the University. Certain criteria have to be met regarding, among other things, course material, student participation and quality of teaching.
