AACSB International


UQ Business School was Australia's first business school to achieve dual accreditation from AACSB International - The association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and EQUIS - the world's pre-eminent accrediting bodies. UQ Business School now joins the ranks of:

  • London Business School
  • Thunderbird
  • Warwick Business School
  • Rotterdam School of Management
  • Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
  • University of St. Gallen
  • University of Washington
  • HEC Montreal
  • Asian Institute of Management

as holders of dual full accreditation from EQUIS and AACSB.

EQUIS, the quality assurance body of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), awarded full accreditation to UQ Business School in June 2004. Prior to the EQUIS award, UQ Business School was the first comprehensive business school in Australia to be awarded full AACSB International accreditation in April 2003. In June 2009, UQ Business School earned EQUIS re-accreditation for a further five years. The EFMD has awarded EQUIS accreditation to just 127 business schools worldwide.

AACSB International accreditation originated in the North American Ivy League business schools and has expanded to cover the Asia Pacific. With the granting of the European EQUIS accreditation, UQ Business School is now recognised globally as a premier business school, whose graduates are recognised for the quality of their degree worldwide.

Our programs (degrees) are accredited with professional associations such as:

  • CPA Australia (CPA)
  • Australian Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAA)
  • Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)
  • Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI)
  • Australian Computer Society (ACS)
  • Australian Property Institute (API).
