GISMA extends prestigious AMBA accreditation!

It is with great honour that GISMA University of Applied Sciences can announce it has received confirmation that they have been officially awarded an AMBA Accreditation for its Global MBA programme following a rigorous and thorough assessment this year.

The AMBA accreditation of the MBA provision offered by GISMA Business School has been endorsed by the Association’s International Accreditation Advisory Board. AMBA accreditation denotes the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education, which is a true credit to the Potsdam based university.

An accreditation from AMBA for the Global MBA makes GISMA Business School one of only six universities in Germany offering an AMBA accredited MBA. AMBA set exceptionally high accreditation criteria and conduct a comprehensive assessment prior to giving their award, which involves a distinct panel of industry experts who meet with representatives from programme academic faculty, along with almost every department within the university and student representatives.

GISMA President, Prof. Dr. Stefan Stein said of the achievement, “I am thrilled to announce this accreditation of the Global MBA from an institution as highly regarded as AMBA. The accreditation is a prestigious seal of approval and is recognition of the academic excellence students expect and receive at GISMA. Our vision is to become globally recognised as the business school empowering its students to think with originality, and enable them to pursue innovative, creative solutions in a business environment. This is exactly what the AMBA accreditation impacts for us. Innovation and excellence in education. The AMBA accreditation reassures us that we’re on track with our vision as a new University, and we will go much, much further!”

In an internal memo to the GISMA team, Prof. Dr. Stefan Stein recognised the immense team effort to reach this achievement and thanked each and every member of the team for their continued hard work and commitment.

The programme itself is a modern MBA programme perfectly aligned with GISMA’s vision. The academically rigorous programme delivery is an evidence-based approach, teaching purpose-driven management techniques, with sustainability and society engrained into all the programme content. The programme is delivered from GISMA’s state-of-the-art flagship campus in Potsdam, Germany, where students benefit from facilities such as classrooms fitted with hyflex hybrid teaching technology, providing an environment in which students learn alongside their peers from around the world.
