The School of Management and Economics at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) 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.
UESTC is a prestigious sciences and technology university in China. The School of Management and Economics is part of the university and offers a full-time MBA, a part time MBA and an executive MBA.
As part of the joint AMBA & BGA accreditation, a panel of assessors comprised of senior Business School leaders from across the globe visited the School. The panel commended the congruence between the Business School and the University, especially in the overall strategic vision.
The panel also recognised the quality of the MBA delivered by the School. The ability to customise the full-time MBA was noted by the panel, as was the priority given by the Business School to attracting mentors from foreign companies to take part in thesis supervision in the MBA.
The joint bachelor’s degree in management and electrical engineering was also commented. The graduates of this course were said to be of ‘genuine international quality’ and highly sought after by employers.
‘It’s our great honour to become the first BGA accredited business school in China. Our school is dedicated to providing the high-quality and distinctive programs to undergraduate and graduate students.’ said Ma Yongkai, Dean of UESTC School of Management and Economics.
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 47,000 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: ‘The School of Management and Economics at UESTC is a dynamic and important part of the AMBA network. I am pleased that we can extend this relationship to include BGA. I look forward to working very closely with this School in the future.’
