Thursday, April 8th, 2021 - The MBA School Of MBA Credentials

The academic world in Victoria is in shock after its top universities drew the strongest dissatisfaction ratings from students in the federal government-commissioned 2020 Student Experience Survey.

In the survey, the University of Melbourne and Monash University “recorded the largest declines in students’ overall ratings of their education experience”, according to this Sydney Morning Herald report by Lisa Visentin.

Upon hearing this news, The MBA School Of MBA Credentials announced it would hold the world’s first Qualification Swap, so that affected students could have certificates that don't name offending institutions; thus helping to make their memories of study less depressing.

The Qualification Swap will be held at The Rubber Chicken in South Melbourne on Saturday, April 10, at 4pm, and all students need to do to participate is bring along any degree or qualification parchments so that Professor Sebastian Longsword can sight them, destroy them, and then replace them with an MBA Degree from his school.

Although University of Melbourne and Monash University were the institutions in the headlines, the Qualification Swap will be open to all students, past and present, from :

  • The University of Melbourne
  • Monash University
  • RMIT University
  • Deakin University
  • La Trobe University

All qualifications are eligible, from a doctorate to an online short course.

Please note: To maintain standards, the Professor does need to sight certificates (the original document) before burning them in the venue’s fireplace to ensure no double dipping. 

To qualify for our Qualification Swap, students are asked to email [email protected].

The MBA School Of MBA Credentials

The MBA School Of MBA Credentials was founded in 2018 by Professor Sebastian Longsword.

Its motto is nihil cognitu vel digna est quia doceri posse, which was inspired by Honorary Professor Oscar Wilde who once wrote:

Education is an admirable thing. But it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

Today, the spirit of Wilde’s chastening remarks pulse through the DNA of the school’s flagship degree, A Lunchtime MBA, in which students can accelerate through their journey over a business lunch.

The faculty believes that students should not be hampered by the traditions of tedium, nay, nor should they be held back by any deficits in ability or discipline.

We believe that what counts most is one’s eagerness to achieve, curiosity to see what happens next, and willingness to jump into new endeavours head first.
