The UWA Business School has received renewed accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
AACSB International is one of three leading international bodies that accredits business schools around the world.
The UWA Business School has held AACSB accreditation since 2011 and accreditation through EQUIS (the European Quality Improvement System) since 2008.
There are currently 777 AACSB-accredited schools across 52 countries, and 167 EQUIS-accredited schools across 41 countries.
The UWA Business School is one of eight schools in Australia to hold both AACSB and EQUIS accreditation.
Acting Dean of the UWA Business School Professor Peter Robertson said the School’s re-accreditation reflected its strong global standing.
“AACSB accreditation recognises the high standards of a school's mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programs, and other critical areas,” Professor Robertson said.
“UWA’s re-accreditation is a result of the dedication and hard work of many current and former Business School leaders.
“At the UWA Business School, our researchers hold a five (out of five) rating for the Business and Management category, as awarded by the federal government’s Excellence in Research for Australia initiative.
“The UWA Business School has also continued to create a world-class student experience. We have introduced new, industry-relevant courses such as the Master of Applied Finance and full-time Master of Business Administration, increased support for our international students, and built on our already-strong industry connections.
“We look forward to building on these strong foundations as we move forward within the University’s new structure and introduce our new Master of Public Policy in July this year.”
