Like a diamond, an MBA is forever!

Be sure it’s AMBA accredited. The COTRUGLI Business School MBA is.

Accreditation benefits

An important factor in choosing a business school is the official recognition of program’s quality, which can be validated through relevant accreditation. In a crowded and complex market, accreditation provides a reliable list of meticulously tested programs and ensures that students’ investments are rewarded with the finest business education available.

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 programs have received the highest quality and most relevant management education. To recruit a graduate from one of our accredited programs is to recruit top talent.“ – AMBA

NOTE: “MBA programs at COTRUGLI Business School are not accredited in formal system of education, specifically not in Croatia and Serbia.”
