Business education solutions for employers

ABE is  internationally renowned for developing skills that improve people's management capability and  effectiveness. ABE qualifications are designed to provide our alumni with the skills employers need.

When you employ an ABE graduate you can be confident you are employing someone with a qualification of the highest standard and the ability to make a real difference in the workplace, so much so that many employers sponsor their employee's study or promote ABE graduates on successful completion of their qualification.  The reason for this is because employers see a direct benefit from having ABE-qualified staff in their organisation.  You can read numerous examples of this in the learners' stories section of the website.

ABE offers full diplomas in business management, human resources and marketing, these match the stages of a Bachelors degree.  We also offer shorter qualifications based around entrepreneurialism and employability.  In addition, we can provide a range of short digital workplace skills / professional development courses.  These are based on future skills needs identified by the world economic forum.
