Why we're different - our Triple Accreditation

Monash Business School is very proud to have been awarded ‘Triple Accreditation’ by three global accrediting bodies: the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB); EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS); and the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

Monash Business School is one of only 97 business schools in the world - and the only institution within Victoria - to have achieved this accreditation.

Why is Triple Accreditation important?

Triple Accreditation means that your business degree will be recognised wherever you want to work in the world.

That’s because your business education has been measured against the standards of the world’s best schools. And your teachers have also met the highest professional standards.

Being part of the accreditation community opens doors to new international partnerships and job opportunities with the best business schools in the world.

For instance, AACSB accreditation provides opportunities for our PhD graduates to gain employment at top US schools, which often require employees to hold a doctorate from an AACSB-accredited school.

These internationally recognised measures of quality allow Monash Business School to demonstrate our excellence to the world - and ensure we maintain a constant focus on continuous improvement and best practice.
