International quality validation that grants accreditation only to the best MBA programmes in the world. “The Association of MBAs is the impartial authority on postgraduate management education and is committed to raising its profile and quality standards internationally for the benefit of business schools, students and alumni and employers. AMBA established that vision in 1967 and it’s as relevant today as it was almost 50 years ago. The accreditation service is the global standard for all MBA, DBA and master’s degrees, currently accrediting programmes from the top 2% of business schools in over 70 countries.”
Multicultural MBA cohorts, academics, and business and industry professionals produce MBA studies that are embedded in business realities. Each year we admit candidates from all over the world and we provide lecturers from global businesses.
We offer networking opportunities and direct contact with entrepreneurs, business and industry. Our MBA programme provides excellent opportunities to experience an international approach to running business processes, solving problems and case studies.
The framework of the programme is based on four key pillars: Strategic Thinking, Operational Excellence, People Management & Self-Development and Foundations. In this way, students may focus on and specialise in a range of diverse competencies, according to their interests and particular needs.
MBA Competence Model consists of three factors that together present a broad, coherent portfolio of competences delivered under the program: Area of Knowledge, AMBA Competences, GUT & FME Mission.
Talent diagnosis and competence development
Participants in our MBA studies have the opportunity to develop their competences and deepen their knowledge about their personal preferences, as well as consolidating their teamwork skills. The educational outlook of the MBA programme encourages our students to commit to a practical research study and to publish their results in the Quarterly Journal “Research on Enterprise in the Modern Economy – Theory and Practice”, issued by Gdańsk University of Technology. MBA students may set their career paths and measure their own progress.
Which graduate or MBA student – from any country in the world – does not know what an AMBA is?
An MBA study programme with AMBA accreditation ranks both the graduates and the programme itself much higher than those without such accreditation, because the AMBA certification validates high quality of the learning outcomes.
The Association of Masters In Business Administration – a London-based international organisation dating back to 1967 – has awarded its accreditation to 200 schools in 70 countries. In Poland, only five universities have achieved this. The MBA programme conducted at the Faculty of Management and Economy of the Gdańsk University of Technology is the fifth such school, and importantly, the youngest. AMBA accreditation is given to a university with graduates from at least three consecutive years, and our programme is only eight years old so this is a great achievement. The MBA programme of the Faculty of Management and Economy at GUT is the only one on the northern Poland coast to have received this accreditation.
The Only University of Technology in Poland
The MBA programmes that apply to receive such accreditation must meet a number of formal criteria, such as the abovementioned number of years that they have graduated students, the number of students per group, professional experience of the students measured in years, university facilities; and also those criteria that are uncountable but important, such as the quality and level of classes, the degree of internationalization, or interesting career paths of the graduates.
The accreditation is not awarded forever – the Association monitors all its programmes and requires verification in subsequent years. The accreditation makes it possible to participate in international rankings of programmes, which in turn pertains to further internationalization both of the MBA programme and the university.
The AMBA Commission has particularly appreciated the uniqueness of the MBA programmes offered by the Faculty of Management and Economy: all programmes are our own programmes. Each course has been specially designed and developed and is well-established at the university. The courses include international lectures, varied teaching methods (a combination of theoretical knowledge and case study analysis), a professional admissions process and the tremendous commitment of the faculty staff and programme management team. The close connection between the programme, the business environment and entrepreneurs is considered an important asset. The success of the MBA programme is a success story from the Faculty itself but also another reason to be proud of the Gdańsk University of Technology.
The mission of the GUT MBA is to provide master’s level executive education to fulfil the needs of industry and increase the value of an educated talent pool, as well as meeting the needs of managers in a wider international business environment. This will include connecting talented people, in order to develop effective leaders and entrepreneurs and to have a significant impact on the growth of industries and the economy through values-led experience.
We are committed to following our core values in daily activities. We are convinced and experienced that they state measures of MBA success. Through them, we create value for other companies, societies and humanities.
