Business Schools in Australia, China and New Zealand Receive EQUIS Accreditation

Newly accredited schools include Curtin Business School, which lost its AMBA accreditation in 2014

Management development organization EFMD Global has announced that it has awarded EQUIS accreditation to several business schools in Australia and China. The following schools are now EQUIS-accredited:

The College of Business, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE), which offers an International MBA program conducted in English, among other offerings. With the newly-awarded accreditation, SUFE joins an elite group of business schools that are 'triple-accredited;' meaning, they have accreditation from the three main international agencies: EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB.

Australia's Curtin Business School, which offers an MBA and a Global MBA program, has also been awarded EQUIS accreditation. The school was accredited by AMBA until 2014, when that accreditation was not renewed. Around that time, the school also lost its placement in the MBA ranking from The Economist, due to inconsistent career data reporting. Today, the school also holds AACSB accreditation.

Also receiving EQUIS accreditation is Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in New Zealand. The school, which offers an MBA program, also holds AACSB accreditation.

And finally, the School of Economics and Management, Beijing Jiaotong University is now EQUIS accredited. 

To receive EQUIS accreditation, a school must go through a rigorous evalutation and review process, which typically takes two to three years.
