Singapore Management University Receives AMBA Accreditation

Other schools that have recently received AMBA accreditation include Spain's ESIC and Peru's ESPAE

The Lee Kong Chian School of Business at Singapore Management University (SMU) has received AMBA accreditation, according to the school. 

With the new accreditation, the school is now 'triple-accredited,' meaning it has accreditation from the three main international MBA accreditation agencies: EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB.

A few other schools have also received AMBA accreditation in recent months. These include ESPAE Graduate School of Business, which becomes Ecuador's first business school to receive the accreditation, and Peru's PAD Escuela de Dirección, at the Universidad de Piura.

Additionally, Spain's ESIC Business & Marketing School, which is based in Madrid and offers several MBA programs, has also received AMBA accreditation.

To achieve AMBA accreditation, a business school must go through a rigorous vetting process. According to the agency, over 240 business schools in over 70 countries currently hold AMBA accreditation. The accreditation is for individual degree programs, such as MBAs and DBAs.
