UM and FBA is the 1st public university to have ‘double crown’ status from international recognized accreditation bodies - AMBA and AACSB.
A press conference has been held on 24th February 2016 to announce the accreditation and have been reported by various newspapers. The announcement have been made by our own Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mohd Amin Jalaludin at University of Malaya Art Gallery, Level 5, Chancellery Building.

AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Today, there are more than 755 business schools in 51 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation. (For the most recent information visit, http://www.aacsb.edu/accreditation/accreditedmembers.asp).
It is a group effort from the beginning to obtain the accreditation including the administration, faculty, directors, staff, and students. Therefore, on behalf of Dean and Accreditation team, we would like to thanks all that have been involved in the process and congratulation to all of us for obtaining this prestigious accreditation.
