Functioning for the past 12 years as a higher education institute that effectively moulds students who are able to take on the corporate world, Australian College of Business and Technology (ACBT) has been a tried and tested provider of quality education. ACBT has grown from being an institute offering a Bachelors Degree to an institution offering a MBA (International) from Edith Cowan University, Australia. The MBA(I) programme commenced in Sri Lanka in 2004 and has thus far produced more than 250 graduates.
In an era of intense global competition, the MBA(I) qualification is a safe haven for young professionals and middle managers seeking career advancement. ACBT is a member of the Navitas Group which is arguably the world’s leading provider of pathway programmes with university pathway colleges in Australia, Sri Lanka, UK, Canada, Africa and USA which is an internationally renowned leader in global education.
The MBA awarded by Edith Cowan University of Australia offers the same recognition irrespective of whether a student completes it in Sri Lanka or Australia even though students have the option to graduate in Australia. Edith Cowan University (ECU) is a member of the National Unified System of Australian Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities. ECU degrees are recognised across the globe and are accredited by many national and international professional associations.
Offering comprehensive teaching with the opportunity to develop in various areas of interest, the overriding theme of the ECU MBA(I) revolves around managerial decision-making within rapidly changing and increasingly competitive business environments. Many of the courses are designed in consultation with the industry. Therefore, the ECU MBA(I) offered at ACBT has won the confidence of many of the local corporates, attracting the cream of top level executives as well as middle managers and young graduates.
The high standard of education at ACBT is assured by the direct involvement of the Edith Cowan University. Moderation of the Institute’s course work is carried out by ECU and the Institute adopts modern teaching and learning methods in a highly disciplined atmosphere.
The ECU MBA (I) programme is probably the most tightly controlled international post graduate programme in Sri Lanka, mainly due to strict monitoring and implementation by the ECU. ACBT believes in helping students in Sri Lanka realise their dream of gaining a respected and internationally recognised MBA(I) at an affordable fee with flexible payment options.
The programme comprises three semesters with flexible weekend and evening classes scheduled ideally for working professionals. Those following the programme also have access to the ECU online library facility and have the option of graduating in Australia. ACBT has already started accepting applications for their next intake in October.
