Master of Business Administration: Extend Registration and Accreditation 01 Oct 2015
Extending the period of registration and accreditations
Report on extending the period of registration and accreditations of the Australian Institute of Management South Australian Division Incorporated
TEQSA has extended the period of registration of the Australian Institute of Management South Australian Division Incorporated (AIM SA) for a period of six months, from 31 October 2015 to 30 April 2016, under section 37A of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (the TEQSA Act).
TEQSA has extended the period of accreditation of the following AIM SA courses from 31 October 2015 to 30 April 2016, under section 57A of the TEQSA Act:
- Master of Business Administration
- Graduate Diploma in Management
- Graduate Certificate in Management
TEQSA has, under subsection 32(1) of the TEQSA Act, imposed one condition on the registration of AIM SA as a higher education provider.
AIM SA may not enrol students or intending students for any of its TEQSA accredited courses after 31 October 2015.
Main Reasons for Decision
TEQSA considers that the decision to apply a condition to AIM SA's registration is consistent with the basic principles for regulation in Part 2 of the TEQSA Act, as the imposition of the above condition is in proportion to the risk of future non-compliance with the Threshold Standards.
- The broad issues which relate to AIM SA's registration include that:
a) AIM SA is not intending to apply to renew its registration, as it is merging with the Australian Institute of Management Education and Training (AIM ET)
b) as part of this merger, AIM SA plans to transfer current students to AIM ET
c) the ability to undertake such a transfer is dependent on the successful accreditation of AIM ET courses.
