The AMBA accreditation 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 AMBA accreditation.
RSM’s post-experience programmes include an International Full-time MBA, an Executive MBA, a Global Executive OneMBA and a Cologne-Rotterdam Executive MBA.
A force for positive change
Members of AMBA’s visiting accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended RSM’s leadership team in creating the new mission statement being a force for positive change in the world. The panel was impressed that staff felt an ownership over the new mission statement, due to the process of creating it being rigorous and inclusive.
The panel noted that the School’s personal leadership programme added value to students. This programme is available to all MBA students and includes self-reflection and career development exercises.
The panel also commended the fact that MBA students from across all the programmes at the School were able to mix with one another, allowing for more networking opportunities and adding value to the overall student experience.
RSM Dean Ansgar Richter said: “Successful accreditations make a big difference to the international standing and reputation of a business school, so I am very proud of this AMBA achievement, completing the five-year cycle of our triple-crown accreditations. This accreditation is again a recognition of our positive, collaborative spirit and the quality and impact of our education and research.”
Changing trends and innovation
The 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 AMBA, said: ‘RSM offers one of the best experiences in management education globally. AMBA only accredits the top 2 per cent of business schools in the world and it is therefore fitting that AMBA continues to work with the School."
