Since it is the ambition of Antwerp Management School to offer qualitative management education, the School achieved a wide range of both international and national accreditations and rankings throughout the years. These rankings and accreditations are important for a Business School, since benchmarking has become an important matter in management education. Business Schools and universities use international accreditations as a criterion to decide on cooperation; participants use them to decide what School they should go to and companies use them to decide whether or not their employees should get a degree of that specific School.

Nevertheless for Antwerp Management School rankings and accreditations are never a goal on its own –we rather stand out due to impeccable quality and great customer service. But of course it’s always nice to be acknowledged for reaching the high standards as set out by the different accreditation organizations, such as AACSB and AMBA on the one hand and by rankings such as the Financial Times Rankings and the Eduniversal and Best Masters Rankings on the other hand. Moreover, these rankings and accreditations give the Antwerp Management School degrees an outstanding mark of quality and (inter-)national acknowledgment.
