BGA membership global nature

BGA Membership

BGA membership is the first tier of association with the network. Membership offers business schools consultative programme reviews for benchmarking and industry best practice, facilitated networking at workshops and conferences, the latest thought leadership and research, promotion of your school and a free membership platform with career services for your students.

BGA validation green shoots

BGA Validation

Validation is a less strenuous and cost-effective quality assurance designed to assess business schools against BGA's Nine Charter Principles, which include graduate achievements and employability, good governance and continuous improvement measures.

BGA accreditation tree growth

BGA Accreditation

A global and leading non-prescriptive, whole-school accreditation that focuses on positive impact, responsible management and lifelong learning.This highly-consultative accreditation is awarded to business schools that can clearly demonstrate value creation and an increasing impact on their students and communities over a measurable period.


AMBA accreditation

The world's leading and most prestigious MBA and MBM accreditation, which maintains high standards and fosters innovation in global postgraduate management education. AMBA accredits MBA, DBA and MBM degree programmes from the top 2% of business schools in over five continents.

Joint AMBA & BGA accreditation

Available only to schools who already hold AMBA accreditation, AMBA & BGA joint accreditation is a highly consultative quality assurance that emphasises the importance of an institution's overall impact and value creation for students, employers, and communities. It maintains the same level of rigour found in AMBA's accreditation of post-graduate business programmes, while expanding the assessment to cover additional programmes and criteria. Achievement of joint accreditation allows schools to demonstrate the quality of their MBA, impact on stakeholders, and alignment to responsible management principles.
