International accreditation

The La Trobe Business School is one of only three institutions in Australia to hold EPAS – an accreditation awarded by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). It aims to evaluate the quality of any business and/or management program that has an international perspective and, where of an appropriately high quality, to accredit it.

La Trobe was the first university in Australia recognised as a Champion of the United Nations backed Principles of Responsible Management Education.

Responsible leadership

The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative is the first organised relationship between the United Nations and business schools around the globe. La Trobe Business School is the only organisation in Australia to hold PRME Champion status. We are also recognised as PRME Ambassadors.
