Students from Paraguay, Portugal and India scooped prizes at the AMBA (Association of MBAs) annual awards ceremony held in London last week.


Spanish student Cecilia Rodríguez Alcalá from Madrid’s IE Business School won MBA Student of the Year and Luís Martins (Portuguese) and Kiruba Eswaran (Indian) from the Lisbon MBA won the Entrepreneurial Venture Award.


The award for most innovative MBA programme went to the ALBA Graduate Business School at The American College of Greece.


Adam Bolton, Membership and Communications Director, AMBA, told Hotcourses“AMBA MBA programmes attract the brightest and best students from around the world and equip them with the knowledge, business skills and networks that will enable them to take their careers to the next level and AMBAs 2015 Annual Awards winners are the perfect examples." 


Speaking about the Entrepreneurial Venture Award winners, AMBA CEO Andrew Main Wilson said: “The success of Zaask is a reflection of the truly global nature of the MBA.


"The Lisbon MBA brought together Luis and Kiruba, two entrepreneurs from different parts of the world who, by identifying a gap in the market and utilising innovative technology, have created a company that is growing rapidly on an international scale.”

The Paraguay Educa Foundation provides around 13,500 children with laptops, access to the internet and programming skills.


Award-winning institution, ALBA Graduate Business School at the American College of Greece, is also fostering global leaders.

"The goal is not to teach MBA students how to become artists", says Kyriakos Kyriakopoulos, Associate Dean, Academic Director of the MBA, ALBA Graduate Business School at The American College of Greece. "The goal is to help them… enact their role as leaders."


AMBA sets the global standard for accrediting MBA, DBA and MBM programmes around the world. It currently accredits programmes at over 230 schools in over 70 countries. The association also connects its professional members with MBA graduates, accredited business schools and MBA employers worldwide.
