A number of QUT courses are accredited by professional bodies, which ensures the development and maintenance of standards, best practice principles, and resources.
Specifically, the QUT Business School is accredited with AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB, making it one of very few business schools in the world, and the first in Australia, to obtain this Triple Crown of international accreditation. QUT’s MBA program is also the only Queensland MBA program (and one of only three Australian programs) to have ever been listed in the FT Top 100 rankings (in 2004 at no. 82).
