The Glorious Sun School of Business and Management at Donghua University 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.
The Glorious Sun School of Business and Management is one of 17 Schools and Colleges that make up Donghua University. The School has more than 130 faculty members and staffs. There are more than 4,000 current students in the School, including over 2,000 undergraduates, about 1,000 academic master’s and doctoral students, and about 1,000 professional/post-experience master’s students such as MBA-level, engineering master’s and international cooperation students. The School is located in Shanghai, China.
As part of the joint AMBA & BGA accreditation, a panel of assessors comprised of senior Business School leaders from across the globe evaluated the School. The panel commended the launch of the Fashion MBA programme, which they thought was a strategically sensible development and a platform for developing a distinctive niche in Shanghai.
The panel also noted the leadership team at the Business School was very inclusive, and clearly dedicated to the academic and pastoral wellbeing of students. The panel mentioned that the quality of English spoken among the senior leadership team was impressive.
Professor Yinfeng Xu, the Dean of the School, said: ‘The School provides fair, caring and creative educational resources, devotes to the inheritance and innovation of economic and management knowledge, and contributes outstanding wisdom to the management improvement and sustainable development. Referring to the standard of international high-level Business Schools and based on the core concept of sustainable development, the School has developed the strategies of comprehensively improving faculty quality, concentrating on disciplines, focusing on the fashion and innovation industry, and cultivating international-orientated, socially responsible, innovative and entrepreneurial talent.’
AMBA & BGA’s rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre Schools which demonstrate the highest standards in teaching, curricula, and student interaction achieve accreditation.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current and recent graduates of the School’s MBA portfolio are invited to join AMBA’s global membership network of approximately 57,000 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.
Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA & BGA, said: ‘I am delighted that the Glorious Sun School of Business and Management at Donghua University has received both BGA accreditation and AMBA re-accreditation. The School is clearly committed to responsible management, which can also be seen by its achievement of winning silver in the Best Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiative award at the AMBA & BGA Excellence Awards 2021.
‘I look forward to working with this School to further the principles of responsible management in higher education and beyond.’
