The ABE, or Association of Business Executives, offers accreditation to schools and to a range of courses within various institutions in the U.K. The ABE is an examination board as well as a professional body, with ABE-accredited courses typically falling within the fields of business and management. An ABE qualification of Advanced Diploma level is used to gain access to business undergraduate degrees both in the U.K. and internationally.
The College offers an ABE course in Business Management and aims to set up students for a business career. The course covers a broad sweep of areas in business, for example, economics and accounting. At a basic level, students can take a nine-month Certificate course; this course consists of modules in business communication and quantitative methods among others. Students can then take Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses which are often required to gain entry to university programs.
