Griffith University’s position as an international leader in business education has been reinforced with the recent news that Griffith Business School’s global AACSB accreditation has again been extended for a further five years.  


What is the AACSB?

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business accreditation is recognised as the highest standard of excellence in business education, affirming Griffith Business School‘s place among leading business schools around the world.

Receiving an AACSB accreditation demonstrates that an institution is committed to the highest academic quality, faculty qualifications, and student outcomes - providing the best in business education worldwide. With these schools then undergoing reviews every five years to ensure they are continuously evolving and improving.

Griffith Pro Vice-Chancellor (Business) Professor David Grant said the re-accreditation was an outstanding recognition of the excellent work done by the School over the past several years.  

“This reinforces our position as a first-class business educator, solidifying the offering to students and bolstering industry partners’ confidence in Griffith Business School,” Professor Grant said. 

“Fewer than five per cent of the world’s business schools have been accredited by AACSB International. 

“For this result, I am grateful to all our staff members, academic and professional, present and past, to our industry partners and stakeholders, to our students, and to the broader University community for their contributions and support.


Future plans with the AACSB accreditation

“As part of the final report presented to the AACSB International Board of Directors, the Peer Review Team provided a set of constructive comments and suggestions to help us take advantage of the many opportunities that lie ahead.  

“Through this process, we have developed new knowledge that will support our further growth and development moving forward. 

“We will be working towards embedding these suggestions into our strategy for 2020-2023.

“We have been overwhelmed by messages of support and congratulations after sharing this achievement with members of the communities we serve,” he said.

“This is confirmation of the remarkable student learning experience students can anticipate throughout their studies at Griffith,” said General Manager Innovation and Stakeholder Engagement with National Energy Resources Australia (NERA), Paul Hodgson. 

Griffith Business School graduate and current Chair of the School’s Alumni Advisory Group, Mr Hodgson said it was wonderful to see the School’s continuing efforts recognised in this way.

“The School is deeply committed to providing a high-quality education with the best possible outcomes for its graduates,” he said.

Griffith was the just the fifth Australian university to earn an accreditation from AACSB, back in 2009.
