Joint Statement from AACSB, AMBA & BGA, and EFMD on Ukraine

11 March 2022

AACSB, the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and Business Graduates Association (BGA), and EFMD stand together in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. As global leaders in business education, our organizations support and serve educators and leaders in over 150 countries and territories through our commitment to the values of peace, safety, freedom, diversity, and social responsibility.  

We are deeply concerned by the rapidly escalating humanitarian crisis resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and we are committed to supporting our Ukrainian business schools and their staff, faculty, and students as they defend their way of life and sovereignty.  

Our colleagues at Russian universities, who have for many years been collaborative and supportive participants in our global networks, find themselves in an unprecedented and extremely difficult position due to the decisions and actions of their government. Still, we have collectively decided to suspend all membership and accreditation activities with Russian institutions until further notice.  

AACSB, AMBA & BGA, and EFMD stand firm with our communities in achieving peace, liberty, and global cooperation for the betterment of society.
