The University of Birmingham: an online MBA like no other

Online Masters of Business Administration – or Online MBA – courses are quite common these days, but not all are created equal. At the University of Birmingham, we have worked hard to make our Online MBA stand out from the crowd to deliver maximum student benefit:

AMBA accreditation

Our Online MBA is the first in the world to receive formal accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA)

AMBA accreditation exists to highlight the best qualifications available to students – a clear and trusted sign of quality. The organisation only recognises institutions and courses that meet its rigorous assessment criteria, which are aimed at identifying high standards in areas like teaching, curriculum plans and student interaction.

Business School triple-crown accreditation

Furthermore, the Online MBA is taught through the University of Birmingham’s Business School which holds triple-crown accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), and of course AMBA. This type of recognition places Birmingham Business School amongst a handful of top business schools in the world.

Russell Group member

The Russell Group is a prestigious organisation representing universities in the UK that are committed to research. There are 24 members in total, of which the University of Birmingham is one.

Being part of the Russell Group confirms that research standards are high – these institutions have the best academics using the best facilities to foster more innovation, all to the benefit of students and their future employers. The group is also focused on solving the under-representation of students from a range of backgrounds at top-level universities, among various other objectives. Along with our AMBA accreditation, this is another trusted mark of quality.

An award-winning global university

As well as academic credentials, those considering enrolling at the University of Birmingham will be glad to know that this year, we were awarded University of the Year for Graduate Employment (2016).

Birmingham Business School is dedicated to developing the next generation of global business leaders through online learning.

I have a Msc in Management. Would prefer to go on to my DBA if available, but I am very much interested in your MBA if you do not have a DBA online. Please advise.
