The ABE Postgraduate Diploma in BM – your pathway to an MBA

The Association of Business Executives (ABE) Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management is accredited by Ofqual and is equivalent to level 7 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The qualification provides a route for students to gain advanced entry on to a Masters degree at UK universities.

There are currently 14 universities that accept students with an ABE Postgraduate Diploma onto their MBA and MSc programmes. As stated in the University news section, this includes the University of Coventry – London Campus, which now offers a 60 credit exemption onto their MBA programmes for Postgraduate Diploma holders – which means that our students enter the MBA in term 2.

The ABE Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management has been developed by senior university professors, utilising current academic learning and research, as well as employer knowledge and practice. It

is therefore an ideal progression route for those who: l Are currently studying professional qualifications and wish to proceed to a Masters degree in business/management; l Have a related Honours degree but wish to proceed to a Masters level business/ management qualification; or l Are in employment, at managerial level, and wish to achieve a Masters level qualification.

Students may take the programme independently (private self-study), or through a college which has been accredited by ABE to deliver the Postgraduate Diploma.

Hello and welcome to this e-magazine edition of Student Focus. We hope you are enjoying this new format and that you are finding it interactive and easy to navigate.

In this issue we highlight the progression opportunities available to our Postgraduate Diploma holders in our regular Education news section. In our Special feature, we offer six easy steps to exam success, whilst in the popular Study tips section we assist students in their preparation for two more Postgraduate Diploma subjects: Corporate Management in Action and Strategic Business Management and Planning.

Following the recent appointment of two representatives in the country, we Focus on…Nigeria and explore how ABE fits into the country’s education system.

To honour the success of our highest achieving students, the Top paper award section lists the names of those who won awards in the June 2010 exams.

Finally, in ABE news you can find out about the Open Day which was held in Trinidad, a great book offer for ABE students, the Myanmar Business Plan Competition and the all important ABE Examination Regulations.

So happy reading and good luck with your studies!
