11 years of ABE at Oxford College of Business; 16 world prize winners and counting
Oxford College of Business (OCB) produced yet another world prize winner for ABE in the recently concluded examinations held in June 2014, taking its tally of world prize winners produced to 16. This is the highest number of world prize winners produced by a single educational provider in the history of Sri Lanka. Mr. Michael Mathew became the 16th world prize winner produced by Oxford College of Business for Quantitative Methods under the supervision of Mr. Janaka Mahesh Hemachandra.
OCB’s reputation for producing world prize winners
What is most impressive to note is the consistency of Oxford College of Business producing world prize winners over the past decade. Over the past 11 years OCB has earned a reputation for producing a minimum of at least one world prize winner for ABE every year which gives great comfort for prospective students hoping to join OCB in the future for their ABE education. Furthermore it also without a doubt talks largely about the quality of education for ABE at Oxford College of Business.
This achievement by the students at Oxford College of Business not only confirms the proven success of the Oxford College of Business’s initiatives, but the culture of sustainability ingrained in its mission of producing corporate leaders at every level of business. Furthermore this achievement highlights OCB’s commitment and dedication to providing quality higher education.
“At Oxford College of Business, we educate the leaders of tomorrow to think strategically” says CEO of OCB. “This achievement recognizes our innovative style of teaching and ongoing efforts, and sets high standards for other higher education providers offering ABE in Sri Lanka to achieve. While Oxford College of Business salute all its academics and industry experts who share their knowledge with all its students following ABE, a special token of appreciation needs to given to the subject facilitators Mr. Janaka Mahesh Hemachandra who became the corner stone in Mr. Michael’s life helping him to achieve this milestone.
It’s not often that we encounter academic staff that is so passionate, knowledgeable, and in sync with the mission of the organization,” says the Head of Academic at Oxford College of Business, “We applaud OCB’s efforts driven towards embedding a culture of learning amongst all of its stakeholders, including faculty, staff, and the entire student body.”
The secret to success
At Oxford College of Business all classes are geared towards professionals and held on the weekends. The secret for producing the largest number of World Prize winners for ABE is not rocket science according to the Managing Director of Oxford College of Business. “At OCB each student is given individual attention and classes are broken down into smaller numbers so that we can give each student a personalized and high quality service. Once each module is taught and completed by the lecture, OCB has a separate number of 15 hours dedicated for the answering and discussion of past papers. This is unique style of teaching practiced only at Oxford College of Business. This is why Oxford College of Business has become the automatic choice for ABE in Sri Lanka.”
The ABE Qualification
Association of Business Executives (ABE) is one of Sri Lanka’s oldest and most prestigious professional qualifications. It is considered a heavyweight among other professional programs offered in the country due to its rigorous application and evaluation process. Students who complete ABE Level 6 Diploma are granted direct entry into the final year of their bachelor’s degree. The qualification of a student completing ABE level 6 is equivalent to 2 academic years of an undergraduate study at a university and equivalent to 240 credit points and accredited by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations (OfQual).
ABE is the fastest route to a bachelors or MBA
Students joining OCB to complete their ABE qualifications are given an automatic progression route. Students who complete the ABE Advance Diploma Level 6 are now able to progress to the final year of their degree. OCB now gives all ABE Advance Diploma holders the opportunity to top-up their ABE qualification with a BBA or enter into the MBA if the student posses sufficient managerial work experience.
Another reason why an ABE qualification is truly important to your career is because it enables you to negotiate a higher pay rate. When you sit down to discuss salary, explain to your boss the level of schooling you have had and how you have been certified as a professional in your field. This can be a big selling point in securing that raise or in getting a promotion in your current position. The ABE qualification is a way of establishing yourself as a professional in your field, who has extensive knowledge. Having the ABE qualification can mean the difference between landing a great job with great pay and continuously losing out on jobs to people who are far more qualified. It can never hurt to get more education and the ABE (UK) qualification will truly pay off for your career!
