The School of Management at Dalian Polytechnic University achieves accreditation by the Business Graduates Association (BGA)


The School of Management at Dalian Polytechnic University has achieved accreditation from the Business Graduates Association demonstrating its positive impact on students and society, against independent international quality standards.

Launched in January 2019, BGA, which is the sister organisation of the Association of MBAs (AMBA), is the only business school quality assurance organisation to offer candidate schools a middle ground between membership and full accreditation.

BGA accreditation is a gold-standard quality assurance achievement that is awarded to business schools that can clearly demonstrate an increasing impact on their students and communities over a measurable period, using BGA’s Continuous Impact Model (CIM), which assesses the improvement in impact across a range of metrics.

All undergraduates and alumni from any of the business school’s programmes are invited to join BGA’s individual membership network. 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.

Dalian Polytechnic University was founded in 1958 as one of the first four universities of China to focus on light industries. Formerly an institution focused solely on the textile industry, the university has expanded its orientation to include general health (such as elderly care), food science (with focus on sea food), and art and fashion (textiles), and light engineering technologies. Established in 1980, the School of Management is currently seen by the University as one of its most important schools.

Yang Weihua, Dean of the School of Management, added: ‘The health industry is a rapidly growing sector with enormous potential for improving human health and well-being. Our goal is to train the next generation of leaders who can drive innovation, create sustainable business models, and promote social responsibility in this field. We believe in a holistic approach to education that combines academic rigor with practical experience, and we are committed to working closely with industry partners to provide our students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Let us work together to create a healthier, happier world for all. ‘

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA & BGA, added: ‘I am delighted to announce that the School of Management at Dalian Polytechnic University has achieved BGA accreditation. I welcome all the students and recent graduates from the business school to join our network which offers a plethora of services aimed at supporting a student’s or graduate’s career growth.’
