ABE is a not for profit awarding organisation that has been operating since 1973.
Our key underlying ethos is to help learners advance themselves. We do this by providing high quality qualifications in the areas of Entrepreneurship, Business Start-Up, Business Management, Marketing, Human Resources, and Travel, Tourism & Hospitality Management. Our qualifications are delivered by our Accredited Centre Partners, which operate in all four corners of the globe. ABE Alumni form a well-established, prestigious global network of professionals engaged in a wide range of disciplines - in business, the professions and in government.
Our Vision is to be recognised as the global leader in entrepreneurship.
Our Mission is to transform the lives of learners around the World by providing the very best quality innovative education.
As we move beyond the technological revolution, ABE recognises that governments and global corporations are no longer hiring at an exponential rate. In fact, automation dictates the need to reduce our dependency on large workforces. This has created the requirement for investment in vocational entrepreneurship programmes that improve the lives of citizens throughout the world. These programmes are pivotal to change and they engender growth.
At ABE, we are leading this change in developing a suite of vocational programmes to inspire and empower learners, not only to create their own wealth, but more essentially, to create jobs and sustainability within their respective countries.
Our Core Values – at the heart of everything we do:
The ability to gain access to ABE’s qualifications anywhere in the World.
Our work-ready qualifications are affordable, irrespective of a Learner’s background. We at ABE believe in enriching the lives of learners not our shareholders, and so we are proud to acknowledge our not-for-profit status.
As an Ofqual (Office of Qualifications & Examinations Regulation) regulated organisation, we invest significantly in ensuring and maintaining the highest quality courses.
We are at the vanguard of providing qualifications digitally, thereby offering learners access to our training programmes and qualifications across their devices anywhere in the World and at any time of day.
ABE has been operating for over 40 years in over 100 countries, and more than 1.5 million learners have participated in our programmes to date. Today many of our graduates are running countries, global corporations, governments, and their own successful businesses.
Our graduates make a significant and positive contribution to their workplace. It is our goal to significantly increase this presence, as well as our visibility within corporate markets globally.
ABE changes lives.
