If one is doing MBA frm a B-Scohool in Europe without any of the 3 accrediations:

How is it going to affect ?

Is there any preferences for accrediated students during recruitments ?

Is the reputation of the b-school (without accrediation) at stake ?

The big MBA employers don't recruit for MBA-level positions from the unaccredited MBA programmes. And even within the accredited programmes, there's a lot of hierarchy: some employers go only to the top 20, top 10 or top 5 schools that they prioritise.

Accreditation by AACBS, AMBA and/or EQUIS assures the employer that students have a rigorous curriculum, a solid student experience and adequate support facilities.

That is why there is a huge difference between the salaries that students get. In Britain, for example, I would imagine that pre-experience MBA students are probably graduating onto salaries closer to those of an undergraduate than to those of the MBA alumni of the top accredited schools.

PS There's a further element here, which is that generally (and not without exeptions) the unaccredited MBAs tend to be in lower-quality schools (For example: In Britain accredited in old universities and unaccredited in modern universities; In France accredited in the grande ecoles and unaccredited in the state universities; In Germany accredited in the elite universities and unaccredited in the Fachhochschules). That means that overseas students in particular, who understand neither the accreditation systems nor the differing reputation of universities, often end up making bad choices.

Thanks for this response. I had no clue about it.

Now I will make a refined search and choose from accredited universities only.

Yes accredited B-School does make lot of difference in terms of course, modules and skill development. I would suggest if your profile is eligible for an accredited B-School then you must opt for an accredited B-School.

Thanks for the response.


Actually I have not taken the GMAT yet.. Just the IELTS with a score of 7.
And I have 5 years of experience in software field.
And I was looking for this Jan-Feb intake.

But now I guess I have to wait.

I think Ashridge might still have places for a start in January; they were advertising scholarships a few weeks ago. With these smaller programmes, which have the minimum class sized allowed to still get into the rankings, sometimes they struggle if they lose one or two candidates very close to the start of the programme.
