Accreditations & history
Only 1 percent of business schools hold the 'Triple Crown' of international accreditations.
Victoria Business School is proud of its long tradition of strong links with overseas universities and international academic and professional bodies, and in a natural extension of those relationships continually seeks formal accreditations and certifications from international organisations.
Since the first commerce degrees were offered at Victoria University, a high proportion of our academic staff teaching and researching in business and economics has had experience working overseas. We also continue to attract many international students to our graduate, postgraduate, post-experience and doctoral programmes.
