Programme and Institutional Accreditation of the JBS
Our MBA is accredited nationally by the Council for Higher Education, and we have the backing of the internationally recognised University of Johannesburg. We are working towards aligning our MBA with the requirements of the international accrediting agencies. However, to apply for international accreditation, our MBA has to have graduated three cohorts of students. Our first intake was in 2020, therefore, it will be two years before we can apply for international accreditation with AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS.
In 2022, JBS will be applying for the institutional “BGA Validation” international accreditation from the Business Graduates Association (BGA) in the UK (AMBA’s sister organisation). In addition, the JBS will be making an application to the Association of African Business Schools (AABS) in 2022 for institutional regional accreditation status.
