Admission requirement

Your admission to a unit or units of study at the University of Sydney is subject to approval, which may include the fulfilment of prerequisites in previous study or your professional experience and availability.

Professional accreditation

The University of Sydney Business School is actively involved in quality assurance and accreditation activities aimed at further enhancing the quality of our teaching, research and community-related programs. We strive for excellence and this has earned us the top international accreditations available to business schools and enabled us to forge strategic alliances.

These include: The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), of which the Business School was the first Australian business school to achieve accreditations in both business and accounting; EQUIS, the quality assurance arm of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and CEMS the Global Alliance in Management Education. The Business School is the only Australian business school to be admitted to CEMS, which is a prestigious alliance of 17 renowned European business schools, nine non-European academic institutions, and 60 of the world's leading multinational corporations.

Professional accreditations

For certain career options, external accreditation is a requirement for entering the workforce. Further accreditations are available to students who complete the requirements and meet eligibility criteria for the following:
