Curtin University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has, for the second consecutive time, been awarded EFMD Programme Accreditation System (EPAS) accreditation.

EFMD approved accreditation following rigorous assessment of the MBA program by the EPAS audit team, which included in-depth review through international comparison and benchmarking.

There are currently 89 programs from 65 institutions in 30 countries with EPAS accreditation.

Dean of the Curtin Graduate School of Business DeanProfessor Mile Terziovski said graduates who choose to study on an EPAS accredited program can be assured they are attending an institution with high international standards, with a balance between high academic quality and professional relevance.

“This ensures the needs of the corporate world are well integrated into the program,” Professor Terziovski said. “Students will also receive international recognition for their qualification, which is extremely important in today’s global environment.

“We are proud of the EPAS accreditation as it reflects our dedication to creating a more culturally diverse learning environment for students in the Curtin Graduate School of Business classroom.”

The EPAS accreditation is for three-years.

The MBA is the CGSB’s flagship program which is aimed at middle and senior managers with an average of 10 years’ relevant work experience. The CGSB was established in 1993 and is the only business school located in the Perth Central Business District.
