Study with us

For five decades ABE has been advancing international education in business and entrepreneurship and we have an outstanding global reputation.

Our qualifications are designed to give you the best chance of achieving your full potential in your chosen career, whether you are already a working professional, an entrepreneur or studying to build a future career. There is a world of opportunity waiting for you. ABE can help you seize that opportunity. 

Learners worldwide love ABE 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 and you can pay for assessments when you are ready to take them rather than upfront.  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.  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.  We don't set a time limit so you can take as much or as little time as you wish - you just book and pay for assessments whenever you are ready to take them.


As an ABE member, you will be able to access a wealth of resources to support your studies.  This includes a detailed study guide for every unit, a comprehensive syllabus, examiner reports and more. Read the full list here.


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.

Quality assured

ABE is recognised by Ofqual, the UK government's qualifications regulator for England.  We have similar recognition by other regulatory authorities around the world.

We're recommended by 97% of members - read our survey here.
