The University of Western Australia Business School has once again received European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) re-accreditation, reinforcing its status as a leading business school worldwide.
EQUIS accreditation ensures a rigorous quality control, benchmarking schools against international standards in terms of governance, programmes, students, faculty, research, internationalisation, ethics, responsibility and sustainability, as well as engagement with the world of practice.
UWA was first awarded EQUIS accreditation in 2005 and the renewed accreditation means that the UWA Business School will be accredited for 17 consecutive years.
The Dean of the Business School, Professor Peter Robertson, said it was a great outcome of which the School and its supporting teams could be very proud.
“Particular strengths were our research performance, student quality, internationalisation and corporate links. They also commented on the outstanding self-assessment report and facilities,” Professor Robertson said.
“Ultimately accreditation is also a reflection of the hard work everyone puts into research and teaching which drives all the metrics.”
Over the next three years the UWA Business School has a host of planned developments, including the new Master of Business Analytics and the Centre for Business Data Analytics.
