In 2016, University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business (the SEB LU) has officially received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) one of the leading authorities on postgraduate business education.

“From the beginning, our goal on the SEB LU MBA has always been to release the potential of our students and expand their horizons. To achieve that, we have often pushed them out of their comfort zones and tossed them out into the ocean for them to learn how to navigate. I’m proud that when they finish the programme, they are ambitious, the ethical boundaries and the sky are the only limits they have and also what makes me proud is that this path has taken us where we are now, is the one which also awarded us with this prestigious accreditation”.

Professor Andreja Cirman, SEB LU MBA Programme Director

“It is great to see the University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business join the most elite club of global business schools: those with Triple Accreditation, also known as the “Triple Crown”.

This exclusive club of about 75 institutions worldwide meets the highest standards of all three global business school accrediting bodies: AMBA (London), EQUIS (Brussels) and AACSB (Tampa, US).

The University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business runs an outstanding MBA marked by very strong connections to the corporate world in Slovenia and the wider region. With its stellar reputation and visionary leadership, it has fully deserved its AMBA accreditation, officially awarded in July 2016.”

George Iliev, Director of development markets at AMBA

AMBA Accreditation

AMBA is the world’s only MBA-specific Accreditation Organisation, accrediting just 2% of the world’s MBA Business Schools.

The Association of MBAs (AMBA) accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best post graduate management programmes. Only the top 2% of the world’s business schools are accredited by AMBA in their Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Business Management (MBM) and Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programmes.

“AMBA is a truly global business organisation and the only accrediting body that specifically focuses on accrediting MBA programmes.

We are very particular about who we accredit. In fact AMBA accredits less than 5% of the world entire portfolio of business schools. Operating as both an accreditation and membership organisation, AMBA is unique in the postgraduate management field, as it brings together the business leaders of tomorrow with the thought leaders of today.

With its accreditation the SEB LU joins the world’s leading business schools. We value working closely with them and AMBA’s MBA members to ensure outstanding postgraduate management education continues to be the top priority for employers, governments and ambitious executives who will become the global business leaders of the future.”

Andrew Main Wilson, AMBA Chief Executive

What does AMBA accreditation mean for students, employers, business school and MBA graduates?

For students, the decision to take an AMBA represents a major commitment, both in terms of time and money. In a crowded and complex market, AMBA accreditation provides a reliable list of meticulously tested programmes and ensures that students' investments are rewarded with the finest business education available, which will have a demonstrable impact on their careers.

Employers looking to acquire the best managers and future business leaders know that graduates of AMBA accredited programmes have received the highest quality and most relevant management education. To recruit a graduate from one of AMBA accredited programmes is to recruit top talent.

Accreditation gives business schools international credibility and status. The number of MBA qualifications available worldwide is now in the thousands, but only a small percentage of these would achieve accreditation if they were submitted to our rigorous international criteria. AMBA accreditation identifies programmes as the best available. The developmental nature of our accreditation process often helps business schools spot potential shortcomings in their programmes, and our comprehensive and consultative report outlines recommendations for improving provision in the future.

AMBA membership means that MBA Graduates can network with one another, knowing that they are connecting with individuals from the best global MBA programmes. Member services provided to graduates from AMBA accredited business schools include careers support, job portals, networking opportunities, access to the latest research, and CPD events and training. MBA graduates know that AMBA accreditation opens doors and opportunities for them.
