The School of Management at Politecnico di Milano confirms itself in the top 2% of Business Schools globally with AMBA-re-accreditation

The School of Management at Politecnico di Milano officially received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.

Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of the School of Management at Politecnico di Milano are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of more than 56,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits.

Accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) 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 Association of MBAs accreditation.

The School of Management at Politecnico di Milano was founded in 2003. The Business School’s mission is to ‘contribute to the collective good through a critical understanding of the opportunities offered by innovation.’

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the culture of innovation at the Business School which was seen to be present in all its activities.

An example of this innovation was seen in the FLEXA life-long learning initiative, which is based on artificial intelligence. The panel noted that this was ‘highly distinctive’ among European Business Schools.

The leadership team at the School was said to be dedicated to the academic and pastoral wellbeing of the students.

“We are extremely proud to be in the top 2% of Business Schools that received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA). A recognition that demonstrates our engagement in reaching the highest level of achievement in our programmes and in pursuing excellence in management education.” said Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini, President and Dean of MIP Politecnico di Milano.
”We are really pleased that on this occasion, the members of AMBA’s accreditation panel also commended our culture of innovation, well represented by FLEXA, our continuous and personalized training platform, that we have made accessible to everyone, free of charge, just in these days.”

AMBA 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 the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said: ‘I am delighted that the prestigious School of Management at Politecnico di Milano has received AMBA re-accreditation. This is a School which is constantly innovating and increasing the standard of business education. I look forward to continuing to work with this School to further these endeavours.’
