Awards and Accolades

Over the years, the growth, development and academic achievements of the MSBM have been recognized through a number of awards and accolades.

In 2001, the School won the USAID, 40th Anniversary Award of Excellence for Education, and in 2004, it was admitted to Membership in the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (ACSB) International and in 2005, the School received the UWI‘s “Principal’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to Public Policy”.

Since 2008, MSBM has been ranked by the Eduniversal International Scientific Committee (France) among the top 1,000 business schools in the Worldwide Business Schools Ranking. In addition, MSBM was given the ranking of ‘2 Palmes’ in the league of “Good Business Schools with Regional Influence”

In 2014, MSBM was awarded Best of Chamber (Small Enterprise)  by the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC). This  award is bestowed on "an outstanding member company that has met the highest level of sector performance and best practices in the areas of corporate leadership, product and service quality, human resource development, marketing innovation, corporate citizenship and sustained growth". MSBM joins a long list of distinguished Jamaican firms, organisations and individuals to be honoured by the JCC which is one of the oldest business associations in the hemisphere.

Similarly, in 2015, the School  was among the top three winners of the Project Management Organization of the Year (PMOY) award and was recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI) for excellence in project management. MSBM won the award based on the successful implementation of the “Infrastructure Project”, specifically the opening of the Finance Lab- the Caribbean's first University Finance Laboratory of its kind-which was completed on time and under the budgeted cost while achieving its business objectives and the required standards of quality.

Specific MSBM programmes have also received international recognition as  several of the School’s post graduate programmes  have been  ranked in the top 20 in their respective fields in Latin America by Eduniversal.

In June 2011, the MSBM received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) for a period of three years for achieving what AMBA describes as the highest standard in Postgraduate Business Education for its EMBA and MBA programmes. AMBA’s accreditation is internationally recognised as the global standard for all MBA, MBM and DBA programmes. The programmes were re-accredited in June 2014 for another three year period after another rigorous assessment by the AMBA team. Very significantly, in June 2017, The MBA programme was re-accredited for a period of five years which is the longest period offered by the AMBA. The re-accreditation by the AMBA is further proof that the MSBM has indeed become the centre of excellence in business and management education for the Caribbean.

The School has been recognized by  highly reputable international bodies  for partnerships, and in that regard,  the World Economic Forum (WEF) selected MSBM as its partner institution for administering the Global Competitiveness Survey for Jamaica and the Project Management Institute (PMI) has named MSBM a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.). The R.E.P. designation validates that an organization meets or exceeds PMI’s rigorous quality standards and can deliver world-class, effective project management training and education.
