Itâ€™s official – students graduating with a Master of Business Administration from Kingston University are among the best qualified in Europe. Kingston is now one of the elite handful of new Universities to have gained full accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
The sought-after seal of approval recognises Business Schoolsâ€™ ability to meet a stringent set of criteria focusing on the quality of staff, students
and teaching. There are almost 150 MBA courses taught in the United Kingdom, 33 with AMBA credentials.
Kingstonâ€™s MBA is offered abroad at the Haarlem Business School in the Netherlands, the ICBS Thessaloniki and ICBS Athens institutions in Greece and the Academy of National Economy in Moscow. All now boast AMBA accreditation after assessors recently agreed the Universityâ€™s Greek MBA programme had made the grade. The recognition has cemented Kingstonâ€™s place as one of the top European institutions for training business managers.
MBA Course Director David Browne said the 469 students updating their qualifications on Kingstonâ€™s programmes in Greece had been buoyed by the news. â€œOur Greek MBA students have told us they really value the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to actual situations in their workplaces. The AMBA recognition is the icing on the cake for us,â€ he said.
