GBSB Global: An Official ACCA Partner & The First Exam Center in Barcelona

April 2017- GBSB Global is recognized as an official ACCA partner. This means that GBSB Global is the first business school in Barcelona to provide finance programs aligned to ACCA specifications, giving our students the competitive edge.

GBSB Global is also the first examination center to be selected by ACCA in Barcelona. External candidates looking to take the exam for the ACCA accreditation are welcome to do so at the GBSB Global campus, centrally located, in the heart of Barcelona.

What is ACCA?

ACCA stands for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and is a global professional organization issuing highly valued and respected international qualifications in business. The ACCA certifications are recognized by member states of the European Union and the United Kingdom.

Having been qualified through ACCA, proves to prospective employers that students and graduates can perform well in all aspects of business. It assures employers that GBSB Global graduates have the skills required to advance to more senior management positions. Passing certain levels of examination provides evidence that the ACCA certification holder possesses the skills and knowledge which are in high demand by employers in the industry of banking, auditing, consulting as well as other professions like taxation and law.

How does being an official ACCA institution set GBSB Global apart from other business schools in Barcelona and in Spain?
