The Association of MBAs – or "AMBA" – has awarded accreditation to the MBA programs at South Africa's Rhodes Business School and the UK's Hertfordshire Business School.
With the new accreditation round, Rhodes Business School becomes the sixth business school in South Africa to receive the honor, joining Wits Business School and the University of Cape Town, among others. Rhodes offers a modular MBA program aimed at working professionals; modules are delivered in two-week long blocks in Grahamstown, which is about 900 kilometers east of Cape Town.
The University of Hertfordshire Business School is the 43rd business school in the UK to receive AMBA accreditation. Like Rhodes, Hertfordshire offers an MBA program aimed at working professionals; it's delivered on a part-time basis over ten weekends each year. The school is located some 30 kilometers north of central London.
To be accredited by AMBA, a business school has to go through a rigorous process where the accreditation agency evaluates teaching, curriculum, and student interaction.
MBA programs at some 225 business schools around the world are currently accredited by AMBA.
