Who will issue your certificate?

The Association of Business Managers and Administrators (ABMA) is an internationally recognised tertiary qualifications body which provides a wide range of programmes.

ABMA courses are designed to ensure that their programmes are work related and relevant to the needs of industry.

ABMA qualifications are recognised by many international universities and in certain cases can lead to exemptions from the first two years of a Bachelors Degree.
If you are looking for a work related qualification that will position you favourably in the job market, or a qualification that can provide you with degree exemptions, then enrol with ABMA through Speciss College.
