ACCA accreditation provides all the skills and knowledge required

TRUST THE EXPERTS


 

The ACCA Qualification is an internationally recognized designation that gives students the leading edge against their competitors vying for the same position within a company. Providing advanced knowledge and a level of accreditation that cannot be attained at every business school, students eager to study for the ACCA examination at GBSB Global need to ask themselves two questions in order to be successful. What study methods work best for you to optimize your learning and retention? The second and more important question, what support do you need that will aid you in your quest to effectively achieve the pass mark?

There is not one study model meant to fit every individual, and we know that. That is why GBSB Global Business School offers two different study methods designed to accommodate two very different types of students. Identifying what method best suits your personality and way of managing tasks will give you the best possible chance to successfully pass the examination.

Let’s take a closer look at the two study methods.

  • Face-to-Face
  • Online Learning
