- Business college collaborates with leading exam body to offer British qualifications to students in their own language -
A HIGHER education business college has taken a revolutionary step by making English business qualifications accessible to students online in the UK and across the world.
Magna Carta College, a worldwide independent business school with locations in Oxford and London, is offering Association of Business Executives (ABE) and Association of Business Practitioners (ABP) qualifications using an online teaching system combined with practical business experience to create job ready candidates.
This is the first time globally that these programmes will be delivered in such a way overcoming the boundary of language and location by giving non-English speakers access to valuable business courses through bi-lingual content.
Vadzim Tsitou, CEO of Magna Carta, says: “In the UK, a degree is the preferred option by many students and employers; however we want to challenge the status quo and show that a business course like ours can mean a quicker route to the job market, fewer financial burdens and practical experience, all in all creating more desirable employees.
By giving access to ABP and ABE courses via online and bilingual modes we will provide students worldwide, particularly in developing countries, with access to a top quality UK education. Currently there is no opportunity for students who want to do these courses but do not have the finances or the ability to study in the UK.
Previously foreign students who learnt in their own language would not receive a recognised English qualification, making our course the first in the world to offer this.
We want to empower students with freedom of choice in their education with a more adaptable way of learning, letting students decide on their own schedules, the length of their course and most importantly the language that they learn it in.”
Students worldwide will be able to access their course 24hours, 7 days a week and fit their study in when it suits them.
Jason Raife, CEO of ABP, says: "Given the current economic climate and the challenges people of all ages are facing in securing meaningful and rewarding employment, it is now more important than ever that teaching institutions offer innovative solutions that give individuals a competitive advantage over their peers.
Magna Carta College should be applauded for offering learners, irrespective of location and background, an affordable and high-quality route to completing our courses. Typically, holders of our qualifications go on to acquire globally recognised qualifications, such as Masters and MBAs awarded by UK universities."
The course programmes are standalone, so unlike universities where students must complete a three year course in order to gain a degree, Magna Carta students will receive a qualification for every year they study ranging from diplomas to degrees.
Virtual learning technologies will give all those enrolled access to resources such as lecture notes, previous exam questions and technical tips wherever they are in the world and it also allows teachers and students to interact through forums.
Dean of Magna Carter, Professor Alan Jones, comments: “At Magna Carta we are harnessing technology and innovation to develop education courses that will appeal to students, employers and the international market.
We work with many blue-chip clients across many aspects of business aiming to expose our students to the skills of employment early and eliminate the prospect of fresh graduates with no practical experience."
