Association of MBAs

The Association provides a network for MBAs, business schools and employers. We also offer an important forum for the exchange of knowledge, ideas and best practice.

History
 
The Association of MBAs was founded in 1967 by eight UK graduates from Harvard and Wharton. Realising the fundamental strength of the qualification in terms of business and leadership, but seeing little knowledge of it in Europe, they decided to form a lobby and membership group. This started as the Business Graduates' Association and coincided with the setting up in the UK of London and Manchester Business Schools and the growth of management education in the rest of Europe at IESE and INSEAD. The BGA developed into the Association of MBAs which began to accredit the growing number of MBA programmes as well as developing a strong membership brand.
 
 
Where are we now ?
 
The Association's role is to be the Advocate for the MBA. We currently accredit 127 schools in 64 countries and have a network of 8000 members living and working in 80 countries. Schools accredited by us include INSEAD, London Business School, IESE, HEC Paris, Instituto de Empresa and Rotterdam to name a few.
 
The Association's vision for the future is to become the international authority on business and management education. We are working to establish a tripartite network to improve the lines of communication between members, employers and leading business schools.
 
 
Where are we going ?
 
The realisation of this vision entails various strategies to bring the three constituents of the MBA world under one umbrella, the Association.
 
Firstly, we are expanding the membership base, to improve our service delivery to both the business community and individual members, so as to continuously evolve the strengths of our network in an ever-changing business environment. We will continue to deliver high-profile events that offer the opportunity to broaden horizons, forge new relationships, and address the mercurial challenges of business.
 
In terms of Business Schools, we will foster existing relationships and create new contacts; building on our recent international expansion of accredited business schools, which now stretches across the globe. As the world of business embraces the challenges of globalisation, we plan to be visible at every stage, responding to change and maintaining the prestige and quality of postgraduate management education, through the accreditation of the MBA, DBA and PEMM (pre-experience Masters in general management). In addition, we will focus on MBA alumni and establish an alumni steering group that will promote new relations with Association members, and identify areas of potential collaboration.
 
It is vital that we continually respond to the demands of business. Therefore, it is our aim to increase the level of corporate exchange, and to implement a more integrated system of communication with employers. Involvement of corporate employers is essential to the future success of the Association, and we plan to generate and nurture our links with this sector. We wish to continue our success with various corporate initiatives, and to further develop and promote the relevance and value of the MBA in the corporate world.
