The Association of MBAs (AMBA) is the international impartial authority on postgraduate business education, established in 1967 with the aim to raise the profile of business education and the MBA qualification in UK and Europe. AMBA’s accreditation service is the global standard for all MBA, DBA and MBM programmes and it is the only professional membership association connecting MBA students and graduates, accredited business schools and MBA employers in more than 110 countries.
Fr. E. Abraham S.J. Director, XLRI- Xavier School of Management remarked on the new development, “We are extremely happy to announce that our MBA & MBM provision has been awarded accreditation by AMBA’s International Accreditation Advisory Board. AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best programmes. XLRI with its singular philosophy of Magis, i.e., pursuit of excellence in all endeavors, has continually focused on three inter-related areas: academic excellence, personal values and societal concern. Our institution has spared no effort to make our curriculum world-class and deliver it in the most effective manner. This achievement is the result of continuous hard work and support by our faculty, employees, students and alumni and we will strive to raise the bar across all our management education-centric initiatives.”
“This accreditation will further enhance the credibility of the management programmes offered by XLRI to prospective Indian and foreign students ensuring them the finest business education available, which will impact their careers. It will also help recruiters looking to acquire the top talent and future business leaders know that our graduates have received the highest quality and the most relevant management education. The membership of AMBA would further open doors and opportunities for our students through careers support, job portals, networking opportunities, access to the latest research and training,” Fr. Abraham further added.
