Programme Brief

ONLINE - The ABE Programme caters to students who prefer distance learning.

Online Courses

Online learning at SBCS Global Learning Institute offers a modern way of combining innovative teaching and learning techniques with interaction with your facilitator and fellow students from around the world.

No matter which course you pursue, you’re connecting into our extensive history in distance education provision, a deep commitment to quality teaching and learning, modern facilities and a trusted reputation that has made us the vanguard institution for pioneering Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University’s postgraduate online tutor offerings!

The Association of Business Executives (ABE) was founded in 1973 by a group of industrialists, educationalists and politicians as a non-profit making institution. ABE's aim was to become a market leader in the cost-effective provision of quality British management education leading to awards which were valued in their own right, but which were also recognized as an accepted route into the later stages of a number of UK and overseas professional or university institutions.

SBCS' collaboration with ABE stands as one of our longest, dating back to 1987; over 30 years! Over that time, the development and maturation of this relationship have resulted in hundreds of graduates, and a significant number of world prize winners from our programmes:
