School of Business receives another five-year accreditation from UK’s Association of MBAs

工商管理學院再獲英國工商管理碩士協會頒發五年認證

The School of Business recently received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) in the UK for another five-year term for its Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Science in Business Management (MScBM) programmes. The five-year term is the maximum period awarded and recognises the international standard attained by the two world-class programmes.

AMBA accreditation is based on a detailed assessment and benchmarking of programmes against the AMBA standards, covering curriculum design, quality of teaching and learning, and industry connections. The School of Business was praised by the AMBA review panel team for its collegial environment and caring Faculty, who bring the School’s mission to life in creating a nurturing environment.

Professor Edward Snape, Dean of the School of Business said: “This award is a significant and impartial endorsement of our longstanding commitment to providing quality business education at the highest global standard. The re-accreditation by AMBA retains our position as the only business school in Hong Kong with accreditation from three main management education accrediting bodies, namely AMBA, the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), and the US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a distinction shared by only 1% of leading business schools worldwide. I would like to thank colleagues, students, alumni and friends of the School of Business for their hard work and contribution in winning the re-accreditation.”

Dr Raymond Chan, Programme Director of MBA and MScBM programmes said: “The re-accreditation is a remarkable result for several reasons: for potential students, the accreditation provides a credible indicator of international quality on our programmes; for our graduates, it reaffirms the value of the degrees they obtain; and for employers, it gives them confidence to recruit top talent from our School. I would like to express my gratitude to every member who was involved in the rigorous assessment exercise and contributed to the development of the programmes.”

Setting the highest global standards for postgraduate business education, AMBA is an independent authority which provides accreditation for general management business programmes, including MBA and master’s degrees. It accredits the top 2% of business schools in over 70 countries.

工商管理學院最近獲得英國工商管理碩士協會(AMBA)再度頒發認證,為期五年。學院獲頒最長期的五年認證,再次確認了轄下的工商管理碩士和商業管理理學碩士課程的質素達至國際最高水平。

AMBA所頒發的認證是根據國際標準,詳細評估課程內容設計、教學質素與業界網絡,並將該課程與其他相關課程作比對。協會評審專家肯定了工商管理學院所上述兩個課程的質素,並讚揚學院的教學氛圍,以及致力培育學生的教學團隊,有效切合學院的使命,締造良好的學習環境。

工商管理學院院長施立培教授(Edward Snape)說:「浸大工商管理學院多年來致力提供高質素,並符合國際標準的商業教育。是次再度獲得AMBA的認證,是一項重要和客觀的肯定,並讓我們繼續成為全港唯一並列全球百份之一的商學院,同時獲得三項主要國際商管教育認證,包括AMBA、歐洲質量發展認證體系(EQUIS)和美國國際商學院促進會(AACSB)。我在此感謝同事、學生、校友與同儕的努力和貢獻,讓我們能再次成功取得認證。」

工商管理碩士學位課程、商業管理理學碩士學位課程主任陳兆陽博士說:「這次學院獲續認證具有多重意義:對準學生來說,認證是具公信力的指標,代表課程符合國際標準;對我們的畢業生來說,是確立其學位的價值;對僱主而言,則表示他們可以放心從浸大吸納高質素人才。為此,我要感謝所有參與這個繁複認證過程及為課程作出貢獻的師生校友。」

AMBA是國際獨立認證機構,為商科研究生課程訂立最高的環球標準。現時,全球70個國家當中,只有百份之二的頂尖商學院獲得AMBA頒發的認證。
