King’s Business School, King’s College London has officially received joint accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Business Graduates Association (BGA), two of the world’s leading authorities on business education. These two organizations are globally recognized authorities in the field of business education. The accreditation was awarded after a thorough evaluation process, which involved a panel of senior business school leaders from around the world.

The assessors praised King’s Business School for its strong focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles, and sustainability. They observed that these values are deeply ingrained in the school’s culture, faculty activities, and programs, and are embraced by all stakeholders involved.

The panel also acknowledged the interdisciplinary opportunities provided by King’s Business School, particularly highlighting the collaborations and interactions between different faculties within King’s College London.

This joint accreditation from AMBA and BGA serves as a testament to the high quality of education and the strong commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices at King’s Business School.

Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current and recent graduates of the school’s MBA and MBM portfolio are invited to join AMBA’s global membership network of approximately 60,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries.

Meanwhile, all undergraduates and alumni from any of the business school’s programmes are invited to join BGA’s individual membership network. Through both these organisations, students and graduates can strengthen a community that acts as a force for good in management thought and practice, through exclusive events and business content.

AMBA & BGA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and the organisation works with senior academics at top educational institutions around the world, to update accreditation criteria continuously and maintain one unique, in-depth and detailed approach.

AMBA & BGA believes accredited schools should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education.  As such, the accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation and challenges business schools to perform at the highest level continuously.

We are delighted to have achieved accreditation by AMBA, which is a particularly important recognition of the quality of our MSc in International Management programme and of course, of our excellent staff, students and alumni. We are proud to be a triple accredited business school and part of a community that is committed to ensuring that the education we offer continues to remain relevant to the needs of the world around us.

I would like to congratulate everyone who worked towards this double accreditation of King’s Business School. The AMBA accreditation shows the quality of the school’s MSc International Management programme, while the BGA accreditation shows the commitment the school has to responsible management. “It is a massive achievement to have successfully gained these two accreditations at the same time, and I look forward to working closely with King’s Business School in the future.
