What does it mean to be AMBA accredited?

COTRUGLI has joined the group of world’s best business schools accredited by AMBA, independent association providing independent proof of quality and excellence for MBA programs. COTRUGLI has been awarded the AMBA accreditation and became the only business school in Croatia to receive such accreditation for MBA programs.

AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best programs. The largest benefit of the accredited MBA programs is international recognition. As your MBA diploma is recognized around the world, you can apply for a managerial or executive position in any country and even pursue your Doctor’s degree in any of the reputable business schools.

“Accreditation gives business schools international credibility and status. The number of MBA qualifications available worldwide is now in thousands, but only a small percentage of these would achieve accreditation if they were submitted to our rigorous international criteria. Accreditation by the Association of MBAs identifies programmes as the best there is.Employers looking to acquire the best managers and future business leaders know that graduates of our accredited programmes have received the highest quality and most relevant management education. To recruit a graduate from one of our accredited programmes is to recruit top talent.” Association of MBA’s

Some of these include business schools with highest world rankings such as: IMD (Switzerland), IESE (Spain), London Business School (United Kingdom) and SDA Bocconi (Italy).

How to apply?

MBA admissions staff makes a concerted effort to advise prospective students and help them “self-select” before they apply for the program. Given that the programs will require a significant commitment of time and money, not only from you but also from your employer, it makes sense for program staff to help you assess whether or not you are prepared for the program and if you can expect to benefit from it at this point in your career. In evaluating candidates, admissions committees consider many factors, most of which have already been mentioned: work experience, current employment, prior education, ability to benefit and ability to contribute. If you are an exceptional candidate with university degree, fluent in English, and share an ambition to make a difference, schedule a one-to-one meeting with a COTRUGLI representative. There is no single formula for a successful candidate. You will be the core actor of the MBA program and the value delivered will greatly depend on your virtues. Therefore, we prefer the individual approach to learn your strengths, achievements and scan your potential. If you feel you have all the information needed and wish to apply directly, please fill in the application form. You can also schedule a one-to-one meeting with a COTRUGLI representative and learn more about our programs. >>>APPLY HERE <<<
