A further jewel has been added to the list of glittering accreditations gracing the Executive MBA in Shipping & Logistics, known as the Blue MBA, at the Copenhagen Business School. The latest accolade is the select Danish university accreditation, ACE.

The ACE seal of quality is in the gift of ACE Denmark, established by law as an independent institution in 2007.

Irene Rosberg, program director for the Blue MBA, said: ”It is well known that ACE takes a highly rigorous approach when it scrutinises MBA programs. That there has been a positive outcome from its review of the Blue MBA is a testimony to the standing of the program in the business community, and to the work done by those associated with it over the years. This will reinforce the respect and recognition that we believe we have earned throughout our sector. We are pleased to have worked with top-flight tutors and to have had, and to continue to have, some of the most accomplished men and women in our field among our MBA candidates.”

Ms Rosberg added: “This latest accreditation, taken with three other important approvals that have been bestowed in recent times on Copenhagen Business School, is a clear marker that those who sign up for the Blue MBA will be rewarded with the finest education of its type.”

The Blue MBA serves the maritime and associated industries by equipping executives to handle at top level the challenges of globalisation, and those of strategic direction in their own organisations.  Courses are organised in modules so that executives can devote proper attention to their day-to-day management duties, while pursuing studies and research to fulfill the MBA requirements.

Since 2001, the world-renowned MBA has graduated 120 executives from 35 countries.

Only 1% of all business schools worldwide hold what has been called “the triple crown, ” which comprises the accreditations AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB.  Copenhagen Business School is the only such body in Denmark with ACE endorsement in addition to the threefold accreditation.

The Association of MBAs (AMBA) is described as representing  “ the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education”; the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation is an award based on the quality of all activities including interaction with the corporate world; and the Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business (AACSB) evaluates a business school’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications, and programs.

ACE Denmark identifies world-class study programs, which it assesses on criteria laid down by the Higher Education Ministry of Denmark. These are demand for the program; a high‐quality research environment; academic profile and learning targets; structure and organization; and continuous internal quality assurance.
