A Master's degree in Business Administration program, also known as a MBA, is a degree through which students gain a general understanding of the wide-ranging features of businesses. Often students earning this degree already have a few years business experience. Some MBA courses gain accreditation through the Association of MBAs (the AMBA), an internationally recognised authority specialising in postgraduate education in business. Several universities in the United Kingdom offer AMBA-accredited programs.
