I'm interested in accredited MBA programs in Australia and have heard of the two MOST prestigious business schools of that country such as AGSM and MBS. Are they accredited by the AMBAs and the EQUIS in addition to the AACSB? Pls. advise. I'm from Hong Kong and my mother tongue is not English. I have taken the GMAT since this February and have scored 5.5 out of 6 in the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA). How good is this result for admission to accredited MBA Programs in Australia? Pls. advise. Thanks.

AGSM is accredited by AACSB, MBS by Equis, but that's it. Both are very reputed schools and are constantly ranked within the Financial Times Top 100 Business schools (2008: AGSM #39, MBS #75), so I would not worry too much about not having more than one of the big accreditations.

BTW: The best way to check accreditations is by searching the official lists. You can find them at:

Good luck with your choices!
