Macquarie Business School is accredited by AACSB. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools. It maintains the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide, comprising the top 5% of business schools globally.

AACSB accreditation provides a framework of nine (9) international standards against which business schools around the world assess the quality of their educational services. These standards ensure continuous improvement in all areas, such as teaching, research, curriculum development and student learning. AACSB accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
