Executive MBA Options

International Recognition

The CBS Executive MBA belongs to an exclusive group of global business schools to hold a triple accreditation from the awarding bodies AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. This sets us apart from our peers and ensures that an Executive MBA degree from CBS is recognised, respected and rewarded globally.

Quality assurance

An accreditation from a recognised body is your guarantee that the course you are applying for is worth your investment. And at CBS, we are proud to be among the top one percent of business schools worldwide to have been recognised by the three separate awarding bodies: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.

This rare ‘triple crown’ of accreditation is your assurance that we will provide you with the very best business education. And in addition, our leading programme is also accredited by ACE and PIMS in Denmark.

Global Rankings & Recognition

The Association of MBA, AMBA
In 2007, CBS became the first university in Denmark to receive accreditation from the AMBA, underlining its international credibility and status. The number of MBA qualifications available worldwide is now in the thousands, but only a small percentage of these would achieve accreditation if they were submitted to AMBA’s rigorous international criteria.

Accreditation by the Association of MBAs identifies programmes as the best there is. In a crowded and complex market, the AMBA accreditation provides a reliable list of meticulously tested programmes and ensures that students' investments are rewarded with the finest business education available.

European Quality Improvement System, EQUIS
CBS has been accredited by EQUIS since 2000. The EQUIS accreditation is awarded to business schools based on general quality, taking into account the business school's level of internationalisation. EQUIS assesses institutions as a whole. It assesses not just degree programmes but all the activities and sub-units of the institution, including research, e-learning units, executive education provision and community outreach.

The Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business, AACSB
In August 2011, CBS was the first school in Scandinavia to receive the AACSB accreditation. The accreditation standards are used as the basis to evaluate a business school’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programmes, and other critical areas. AACSB accreditation ensures students and parents that the business school is providing a top-quality education. It also ensures employers that AACSB-accredited business school graduates are ready to perform on day one.

Additionally, AACSB accreditation provides many benefits to the faculty and staff at its accredited schools by attracting higher quality students, providing greater research opportunities, and allowing for global recognition.
