Accreditations and professional recognition

EQUIS logo


CBS is the only business school in Western Australia to hold five-year accreditation by EQUIS, the leading international system of quality assessment.

This global best-practice recognition places CBS in the top one per cent approximately of business schools worldwide and makes it the only ‘triple-accredited’ business school in WA, having already achieved AACSB accreditation and an EFMD Accredited MBA.

AACSB logo


CBS is recognised as an elite global business school through accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.

AACSB accreditation is awarded to business schools that meet the strict standards of quality academic and professional excellence and is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognised form of academic accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn.


EFMD Accredited

Curtin’s MBA and MBA (Advanced) programs are the only courses in Western Australia, and among only five Australian MBA programs, to have achieved EFMD Accredited status from the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

This accreditation means the MBA has been assessed as achieving the right balance between high academic quality and practical relevance for students in a global business environment.

For students, this means the quality of their MBA will be recognised and valued wherever they choose to live and work.
