Trinity Business School confirms itself in top Business Schools globally with AMBA re-accreditation

22nd December, 2020

Trinity Business School officially received re-accreditation last week from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.

Accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation. AMBA accredits the Trinity MBA and the Trinity Executive MBA.

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the three MBA projects available on the Trinity MBA. These were said to be immersive modules which offer students applied management expertise. The panel also noted the continuing development and investment in infrastructure at the Business School.

The leadership team and supporting professional staff were commended as being committed to ensuring the wellbeing and success of the students. The panel also highlighted the strong sense of community at the School.

Professor Andrew Burke, Dean of Trinity Business School, said:

Trinity Business School is honoured to receive another 5 year AMBA Accreditation for its MBA.  The Trinity MBA is one of a few project-based MBAs which involve considerable immersive learning in co-operation with corporations, SMEs and social enterprises.  We are delighted to see this unique approach recognised at the international level.  A huge thanks is owed to our dedicated staff, students and alumni who together have combined their effort and innovation to ensure our MBA is at the cutting-edge of leading world programmes. 

AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said:

‘I am delighted that this School has received re-accreditation. AMBA only accredits the top 2% of Business Schools globally and it is therefore fitting that Trinity Business School is in this select network.’
