The Academy of Business Leaders has officially become a Gold approved ACCA Learning Partner, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta. Succeeding the Silver status, Gold membership recognises the quality of tuition, as well as the overall integrated learning process set up to support students in their learning journey, the academy says.
The acquired Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Gold status also acknowledges factors such as learning support, business development guidance, and quality monitoring provided to students.
With over 1,000 registered students, 50 tutors and seven learning partnerships with internationally and locally renowned professional bodies and educational institutions, the Academy of Business Leaders has been on steady growth over recent years.
The Academy of Business Leaders offers a range of ACCA courses, from regular ACCA papers to ACCA apprenticeship programmes up to 30 months. As an ACCA Accelerate institution, it also provides a fast-track learning environment for students to acquire the desired skills and boost their career with an internationally acknowledged skill set.
“Achieving such an elite status is an incredibly important accomplishment for us at the Academy of Business Leaders and we couldn’t be prouder,” Academy of Business Leaders CEO Morgan Parnis said.
“We launched the Academy of Business Leaders with the intent to provide professionals with opportunities to increase their awareness of industry issues, learn the skills necessary to handle today’s changes and discover their potential. Six years later, our efforts continue to go into building the talent of tomorrow, bridging the skills gap and creating equal opportunities to students wishing to propel their studies and careers forward,” Mr Parnis added.
“Achieving the Gold ACCA Learning Provider status is both a reflection of all that we’ve accomplished as an educational institution so far, as well as a code for future practice which we’ll continue to exercise to deliver an outstanding learning experience,” Mr Parnis concluded.
The demand for ACCA-certified professionals has been growing globally. “ACCA’s strategy is all about creating the accountancy profession the world needs, to develop talented people of the ability to be the accountants of tomorrow,” said Abdul Goffar, ACCA’s Head of Western Europe.
Founded in 1904, the London-based Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is a global professional accounting body. As a leading organisation in the field, it has recorded 7,400 approved employers, 80 accountancy partnerships, 219,000 members and 527,000 students in 179 countries in 2019.
