The accreditation verifies the international business school’s high standards in research and teaching. It especially focuses on curriculum and student interaction and takes innovation in management education into account. ESMT was first accredited by AMBA in 2009.

Included in this year’s reaccreditation is the Executive MBA which is taught as part of the dual Executive MBA/MPA degree launched together by ESMT and the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies in October of last year. The two-year program is taught jointly by the two universities at the Doha Institute’s campus in Qatar with one module taking place in Berlin.
