AMBA Accredits MBA Programs at Six New Business Schools

ESA Beirut becomes the first business school in Lebanon to receive AMBA accreditation

The Association of MBAs (AMBA) has recently accredited MBA programs at six business schools. Here's a quick run-down of the new business schools that have received accreditation:

Beirut's Ecole Supérieure des Affaires, which becomes the first business school in Lebanon to receive AMBA accreditation. The school offers a part-time MBA in either French or in English, as well as an Executive MBA in English.

The International Management Institute Kiev, which becomes the second business school in Ukraine to have its MBA program receive AMBA accreditation (the first school was the International Institute of Business, which is also in Kiev.)

China's Hohai University Business School and Guangdong University of Foreign Studies.

Kazan Federal University, which is in the Volga region of Russia. 

India's Xavier Institute of Management (XLRI), which joins a handful of other AMBA-accredited business schools in the country, including Great Lakes Institute of Management and the Gurgaon-based Management Development Institute (MDI).

AMBA is unique among international accreditation bodies in that it accredits programs and not institutions. For an MBA program to be accredited by AMBA, a business school must undergo a rigorous process of institutional and curricular review. AMBA currently accredits MBA, DBA, and MBM programs at business schools in some 200 countries.
