Is LaTrobe accredited?

i don't think so... - i have looked in their website, and also took a look at the nice colorful prospect(http://www.latrobe.edu.au/gsm/assets/downloads/GSM_2009_Prospectus.pdf) - couldn't find anything.
if a B school information material doesn't say anything about accreditation, it usually means it's not accredited!(or at least not with good ones).

try contacting them and ask.

Latrobe is a real public university with multiple campus. I used to live in Bundoora. The only discipline they did not have was Medicine. They now have law as well.

But whatever you consider, do not consider Chifley Business School although they may market their offerings targeted at prospects from India and Sri Lanka origins

the question was, is la tatrobe accredited, not if it is a real school.....
being a university doesn't really rid it of having to be accredited - in a way, it only makes it more suspicious when it is not!

i would still suggest calling or mailing them for the information - calling may be a better way, as it is easier to notice if they are trying to hide something.

I beg to differ. Calling ? who would you reach ? Can you trust a person over the phone ? Will you trust someone over the phone ?
A mail is definitely better.

Latrobe is a chartered unviersity funded by Australia Government. Does it need any more accreditation or certification by 3rd party. may be you have not been exposed to this university. but I have been there many times.

I rest my argument, case in point, that I would never trust schools like Chifley Business Schools (which offers MBA) but certainly not a real university. I wouldn't call it a diploma mill, but a very fine line in between, may give some people the same perception. Latrobe is a real university.

Disclaimer: I graduated from Deakin University (on campus) in Geelong. I recently completed my M.InfoTech from Charles Sturt University (Wagga Wagga).

I have been admitted to a MBA program jointly run by Deakin Uni/APESMA (now Chifley) in 1995-6 because of its affiliation to my old university. I regretted it until this day... because Chifley Business School has the weakest "accreditation" per se. They call themselves B-School - go figure.

I have recently paid for my tuition fees to University of Sunderland (Newcastle, UK) for finishing my MBA - which is what it is worth. a real university MBA that requires me to complete the rest of the research modules and a dissertation. Something I am more interested in then other MBAs which is more coursework/exams.

Mailing and made inquiries is acceptable
Phoning in makes no sense
Accreditation by 3rd Party is debatable
The important thing is that it is a chartered university.

What you are saying is true, if he is only planing to work in Australia(and maybe also some neighboring Islands) after graduation. although i am sure it is a great university, an MBA degree should be from a school the name of which a future employer would recognize, or at least a school which he can see by goggling for rankings and accreditation. i know this doesn't seem to be fair - but i am pretty sure that is how things work.

and as for the question of trusting a person over the phone - well, i think you can tell a lot just by the ton of voice. this of course doesn't say you shouldn't also mail them - at best, do both! but you should always read what they say carefully, and have a good amount of doubt/be willing to do some fact checking afterwards.
