Qualifications for Ambitious People
ABE has an outstanding history and an excellent global reputation. Our qualifications are designed to give you the best chance of achieving your full potential in your chosen career. There is a world of opportunity waiting for you, and ABE can help you seize that opportunity and succeed.
Our Diplomas are management focused and blend common units with more specialist subject areas, enabling you to develop expertise in particular disciplines as well as a strong understanding of business management in general. This, together with our qualifications’ focus on developing practical workplace skills alongside academic expertise, is a winning combination for ABE graduates.
More Great Reasons to Study with ABE
Learners worldwide love our qualifications because they are:
ABE qualifications are the outcome of extensive research which assessed which skills would be of most value to business professionals. They will give you the toolkit you need to succeed and make a difference in the workplace.
We are a not-for-profit organisation so our objective is to ensure our fees remain as affordable as possible. Plus, our fast track routes to degree programmes are often much more cost effective than traditional routes.
You can study full-time or part-time, attend a college or self-study (with the support of a college). All our programmes share common units which allow you to explore several areas of business management and then decide to specialise if you wish to do so.
As an ABE member you will be able to access a wealth of resources to support your studies.
In our most recent survey ABE alumni were working in more than 70 countries.
Our alumni speak for themselves. They are working in a diverse range of industries and organisations. Many are in top jobs or running their own successful enterprises.
A great route to university
ABE’s qualifications are accepted by a large number of universities. Learners with Levels 5 and 6 can fast track onto a Bachelors or Masters/MBA degree course, meaning the cost of their education is dramatically reduced.
ABE is recognised by Ofqual, the UK government’s qualifications regulator for England. We have similar recognition by other regulatory authorities around the world.
The Top Three Reasons People Choose ABE Qualifications Are:
They Offer Great University Progression
With an ABE qualification you have a fast and affordable route to a Bachelors or Masters degree.
Our qualifications each carry 120 credits* which match the stages of a degree so, typically, with our Level 5 qualification, you can go straight to the final year of a comparable Bachelors degree and with our Level 6 you can top up an MBA or other Masters qualification.
ABE is much more affordable than going to university for the full programme, and you can potentially achieve our qualifications more quickly than a degree. So, you save time and money and get to the same place.
To Get A Great Job
In a recent global survey of ABE qualification holders we found that 70% of people who completed with a higher-level ABE qualification (e.g. L6) were in a managerial, professional or leadership role (including running their own business).
Additionally, a further 30% of respondents were in full-time employment and had started their journey up the career ladder. There is no doubt that an ABE qualification will help you get the job you want.
To Advance Professionally and Improve Their Business and Entrepreneurial Skill Set
Our students often get promoted as a result of their ABE studies. This is because our qualifications develop business management skills on a really practical level.
As soon as you start an ABE qualification you will learn things you can apply in the workplace and employers notice a real difference in performance.
WHY STUDY WITH ABE
Our qualifications are the outcome of extensive research that assessed which skills businesses need in order to thrive. Our findings highlighted that organisations require staff with a set of strong core business skills that can be flexible and adapted to diverse environments.
This research, along with consultation with employers and subject experts, has provided the backdrop for ABE’s outstanding portfolio. Our qualifications are designed to adapt and develop in line with the needs and demands of employers now and in the future.
Whether you dream of becoming an entrepreneur, getting a great job, being promoted to senior management, or you are already in a leadership role and want to enhance your professional skill set, an ABE qualification will help you turn your plans into reality.
Take the next step on your road to success.
