Sheffield’s Management School joins global elite

The University of Sheffield’s Management School has been officially recognised for its world-class postgraduate management education programme, after receiving accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

AMBA is the internationally-recognised global standard for all MBA programmes. Accreditation by the association is a significant accomplishment for any university or business school and MBA candidates can be sure that an AMBA-accredited programme represents the highest quality of degree.

The Sheffield MBA is based on the University of Sheffield's strong tradition of educational excellence, combined with the city’s long-established tradition of business innovation.

Sheffield now joins 128 distinguished Schools from 64 countries around the world who have been accredited by the association. Accreditation will assure candidates of the global quality and relevance of the School’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme and provide Sheffield with a distinct market advantage and international visibility.

Professor Keith Glaister, Dean of the Management School at the University of Sheffield, said, “I am delighted that the Management School has obtained accreditation from the Association of MBAs. This is an international benchmark that validates the global standard of our MBA programme and represents an important step in the building of a world-class Management School at the University of Sheffield.”
