BGA Membership

A membership designed to enhance, support and develop business schools around the globe

BGA believes that business schools should innovate and venture beyond conventional means of teaching and research. This is reflected in the services delivered to BGA’s member institutions.

Premium services built for business schools


School/Programme Consultancy Review

BGA accreditation offers consultation services designed to support business schools in improving against areas that require attention.

The School/Programme Consultancy Review is a complimentary service that offers an in-depth analysis of a chosen programme or aspect of the business school. These include alumni/career services, marketing admissions strategies, lifelong learning initiatives, or overall school strategy.

It can also align a programme, such as the MBA, against either AMBA or business school accreditation criteria. schools can use the consultancy review for an aspect of their school, or a specific programme, once a year.
