Our Journey

Malta Business School (MBS), as it is today, evolved from a concept proposed and promoted by the School’s founder and director Lorenzo Mulè Stagno, who started providing adult training programmes to organisations in 2005 under the company name Allied Consultants Ltd. The following year, the company achieved school recognition status by the Education Authorities. In 2007 the firm was awarded representation of the Henley MBA in Malta following a competitive application process, launching its first Henley MBA intake in May of 2008, and thus reviving the good name of Henley in Malta (after a 2-year period of inactivity). Working with Henley Business School UK became, and still is, a mutually beneficial arrangement. 

In the following 4 years, the School increased its market share in corporate training and public training tenders and in 2012, together with the move to new and bigger premises with classroom facilities, Malta Business School was officially launched. While corporate training opportunities were increasing, the Head of School was keen to introduce accredited courses as part of its portfolio. Therefore, in 2014, MBS launched the Diploma and Extended Diploma in Management, tagged at Level 5 on the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF) and European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

In 2018, MBS achieved a major milestone, having passed all quality standards in the first NCFHE (now MFHEA) external quality audit. At this time, MBS was the very first business school, and the first school overall, to have passed all quality standards.

The School has always been interested in expanding on an international scale and, in 2018, Malta Business School reached an agreement for international collaboration in the Republic of Georgia, thus receiving Georgian students at the Malta campus. Further endeavours for internationalisation continue to develop at Malta Business School.

MBS overcame the COVID challenge by smoothly switching all programmes to online streaming within the first week of lockdown in March 2020. Simultaneously, MBS increased its rate of portfolio expansion by adding a Certificate in Project Management at MQF/EQF Level 6, and a Diploma in Accounting at MQF/EQF Level 5. The School also launched its own Level 6 Bachelor in Business and Management (fully accredited by the MFHEA) in the last quarter of 2021.

The School works exclusively with adult learners and delivers courses from MQF Level 5 to MQF Level 7, including a number of award certifications. MBS retains the concept of its motto ‘applying knowledge for success’, which is and will always be extremely relevant to adult learners.

The journey continues…
