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


The School of Business of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) 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 HKBU 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, HKBU, 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, HKBU, 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.



浸大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。」
