International student recruitment is vital to the continued existence of many western universities. Culture shock and meeting all the requirements necessary for qualifying for a western university program is a real challenge for many international students. From the application process to the on-campus experience, students who try to navigate it on their own without proper guidance and assistance can become overwhelmed. This can negatively impact a student’s ability to function and perform to their best potential in a strange country.
Bridging the Gap
ABEA offers its students two key courses of study, namely the Foundation Diploma Program (with Life in Country of Study module) and Workshop in Business Management (with Life in Country of Study module) for Post Graduate/MBA students.
1. ABEA Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Business Management and Tourism & Hospitality is a student/university supportive program, designed specifically for students studying to enter Canada and the U.S. This course plays that vital role of helping universities fill their courses with highly qualified students who are already exposed to the culture of their study destination, allowing said students to obtain a basic but essential knowledge in Business Management and Tourism & Hospitality as well as experience a smoother transition from the culture of their home country to that of their study destination through the Life in Country of Study module. Another key benefit to universities is that it saves faculty the time of taking students through the introductory necessities of university life in their respective country.
Our Foundation Diploma Program covers key topics such as Business Management, Business Accounts and Finance, Business Environment in Canada/US and Economics, Hospitality Management, Business Communication and Marketing.
The program will also consist of an elective module of Life in Contemporary Canada/US. Students who take our course will find it much easier to adapt and start life in their new country. It essentially eliminates the transition hassles for both the student and the university.
2. The ABEA Certificate in Business Management and Life in Contemporary Canada/US program is a short, 10-day course which targets managerial level candidates who have years of work experience but lack the basic grasp of theoretical Business Management awareness.
The program will also consist of Life in Contemporary Canada/US. Students who take this course will find it much easier to adapt and start life in their new country, and will also enable them to mingle easier in these countries. It furnishes students with certain information about Canada and the US and will essentially eliminate the transition hassles for both the student and the university.
We currently have centres operating in Sri Lanka and Malaysia. Students interested in taking our courses in these countries can contact these centres or ABEA country office for entry criteria and further information.
