Association of MBAs to widen accreditation role
The Association of MBAs will extend its accreditation service to career-entry masters in general management programmes and the Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) from Spring 2005.
"Given the proliferation of masters courses, there is now a need to distinguish between the Accredited MBA, which requires several years' work experience, and the career-entry masters in general management which is targeted at those with no previous work experience", said Association of MBAs' Chief Executive, Jeanette Purcell.
"The Association also sought advice from its International Accreditation Advisory Board, which comprises representatives from top international business schools. It was felt that, in the interests of clarification, a distinction should be made between the two.
"As an independent Association we are focused on safeguarding standards of excellence and ensuring clarity around the purpose and the nature of postgraduate management education".
Accreditation of career-entry masters in general management programmes and the DBA will only be available to institutions currently offering MBA programmes accredited by the Association.
