Our international accreditations

Curtin Business School is known for its excellence in teaching and the practical, applied nature of its courses. Globally, CBS is recognised as an elite business school through its accreditations by EQUIS, AACSB International and EFMD.

In early-2021, CBS became the only business school in Western Australia to hold a five-year accreditation by EQUIS, the leading international system of quality assessment. The credential distinguishes Curtin as the only ‘triple-accredited’ business school in WA (complementing our AACSB accreditation and an EFMD Accredited MBA) and places us in the top tier of business schools worldwide.
