AMBA (Association of MBA's)



AMBA (Association of MBA's) is an independent association founded by graduates of the best MBA programs from around the world, working since 1967. Its overarching goal is to raise the standards and quality of post-graduate school education for the benefit of students, graduates and employers.

  • the diploma gained after completing the AMBA accreditation program is recognized globally as a confirmation of the quality and standard of received education
  • AMBA is an association that connects MBA students, graduates and employers around the world, giving the opportunity to expand international contacts
  • Thanks to its own research center, AMBA creates a rich collection of reports examining global trends that guide the thought of leadership in the industry

  • Accredited business schools, their students and graduates of accredited schools have full access to a range of exclusive services and benefits, including world-class events and training

 EQUIS accreditation



EQUIS is a prestigious accreditation. The verification commission assesses the institutions applying for this distinction very critically. Only 176 business schools worldwide have this accreditation. The Faculty of Management at the University of Warsaw is the second university in Poland, which according to EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development), meets all of the following requirements.
The main goal of EQUIS, related to the EFMD mission, is to raise the level of management education around the world.

To achieve this goal the commission distinguishes the universities by assessing:

  • the institution as a whole. It assesses not only the study programs, but also all the activities and sub-units of the institution, including research, e-learning units, educational benefits for the managerial staff and the reach of the community. Institutions must be primarily geared to management education. The scope covers all programs offered by the institution from the first degree to the doctoral degree
  • the balance between high academic quality and the reference to professional practices provided by close interactions with the corporate world. Close cooperation with the business world is therefore as required as the research potential. EQUIS pays special attention to creating an effective learning environment that supports the development of managerial and entrepreneurial skills and supports the sense of global responsibility. He is also looking for innovation in all aspects, including designing programs and pedagogy
  • internationalization. Due to the fact that companies recruit employees from around the world, future students choose education outside their own country, and schools build alliances across borders and continents, there is a need to identify those institutions that provide high quality education in international management
