AMBA accreditation extended by five years

The International Accreditation Advisory Board of the Association of MBAs (AMBA)has recently extended its accreditation of Vlerick Business School’s MBA programme portfolio for five years. Having received the AMBA accreditation for the first time in 2001, this is the third time in a row that the AMBA committee grants a full five year extension.

With this re-accreditation the School continues to be part of a select group of global educational institutions in possession of three of the most important international accreditations in the field of management education: the European EQUIS, the British AMBA and the American AACSB. Vlerick Business School was one of the first schools in the world to achieve the so-called “triple crown”. This threefold accreditation confirms that teaching and research at Vlerick has achieved the highest global quality standards.

The AMBA Advisory Board was very much impressed by the progress the School has made in the past five years, even exceeding the Association’s criteria. According to them this suggests strong and effective leadership and a collective entrepreneurial spirit. Furthermore, the Board commends Vlerick’s physical resources, combining modernity and functionality with an agreeable ambiance. Other highlights are the approach of the School towards developing links to corporate organisations, which the Board describes as ‘impressive in its professionalism and effectiveness’. Finally, Vlerick is commended for its well-qualified academic faculty who are highly collegiate and enthusiastic towards the students.
