The Association of MBAs was founded in 1967 by eight UK graduates from Harvard Business School, Wharton, Stanford and Columbia, and two graduates from the first intake of London Business School. The organization's development helped shape the growth of management education in Europe and the UK.
The Association of MBAs (AMBA) is a London-based international organization that accredits postgraduate business programs at business schools worldwide. The Association is one of the three main global accreditation bodies in business education and styles itself "the world's impartial authority on postgraduate management education". AMBA is the most international of the three organizations.
