In June 2015, UNSW Business School was – for the second consecutive time – awarded EQUIS accreditation for 5 years by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

Achieving EQUIS reaccreditation is a fantastic achievement that further enhances the school’s international standing,” said Professor Chris Styles, Dean of the Business School.

“There are thousands of business schools in the world, but only 156 have received EQUIS accreditation and not all are granted the full five-year accreditation, which places the School in an exclusive group of the world's leading business schools.”

The EQUIS Awarding Body made the following comments in its letter conferring reaccreditation:

“The Awarding Body took particular note of the quality of the School as demonstrated by its international faculty, strong research culture and outstanding reputation in the Australian business education market.”

AGSM programs also holds international accreditation from AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for bachelors, masters and doctoral degree programs in business and accounting.

This is an honour only granted to institutions fulfilling the highest standards in curriculum, faculty and teaching. AGSM @ UNSW Business School is among only 736 AASCB-accredited business schools around the world.

Not all MBAs are the same. AACSB International accreditation is a hallmark of excellence in management education. It represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools, worldwide.
