Griffith joins the ranks of Harvard

Written on the 5 March 2009

 

THE Griffith Business School has been awarded international accreditation similar to that of Ivy League universities including Harvard and Yale, as well as the London Business School.
Griffith University is the fifth university in Australia to receive accreditation for all its business programs from the leading international business education accreditation body, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
Griffith Professor Michael Powell says it’s a great coup for the Griffith Business School to achieve such global recognition.
“AACSB International accreditation is considered globally as one of the highest achievements for an educational institution that awards business degrees,” says Powell.
“Our selection reinforces our position as a first-class business educator, with less than 5 per cent of the world’s business schools accredited by AACSB International.
“The accreditation will strengthen students’ and industry partners’ confidence in these uncertain financial times that they will receive a first-class business education when they choose the Griffith Business School.
“The accreditation assessment process was rigorous with the final stage involving a three-day site visit by a panel of three international deans from prestigious business schools.  Achieving such recognition is a great start to the year.”  
Griffith Business School’s accreditation will be formally acknowledged at the annual conference of AACSB International next month in Orlando, Florida.
Powell noted that Griffith’s MBA also recently received a five-star rating for the seventh consecutive year from the Graduate Management Association of Australia.
“We’re only one of two universities nationally to achieve this feat and our International MBA program also received five stars in only its second year,” he says.
AACSB International is the premier accreditation body for institutions offering undergraduate, master and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.  It’s an association of more than 1100 education institutions, businesses and other organisations in 70 countries dedicated to the advancement of management education worldwide.
