Chuo Business School earns AMBA business education accreditation
On September 20, 2022, the Chuo Business School (CBS) received accreditation for business education from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), an international accreditation body based in the UK.
Business education accreditation ensures the quality of education and research activities at business schools based on accreditation assessment by a third-party international institution. This accreditation assures that the quality of education and research at CBS is compatible with the world’s top business schools. CBS will also be required to maintain and improve the quality of its offerings continuously to maintain its accreditation.
AMBA is an international accreditation body for business education established in the UK in 1967, and is one of the three major international accreditation bodies, along with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in the United States, and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) in Belgium. As of 2021, 287 schools, or approximately two percent of the world’s business schools, have received an accreditation from AMBA. CBS is the third school to be accredited in Japan.
In receiving AMBA’s accreditation, the CBS educational programs were highly valued, in particular their focus on nurturing adult graduate students and the CBS alumni community throughout Japan. The history and tradition of Chuo University, which began as the English Law School (Igirisu Horitsu Gakko) also served as a strong tail wind in this process.
Through this accreditation CBS is expected to develop a broader and stronger network among the world’s top business schools. Taking this opportunity, CBS will leverage the added value for students, alumni, and educational programs, with the support of the entire Chuo University.
