The Academy of Business Leaders has been recognised for its high-quality learning experience and is officially a Gold approved ACCA Learning Partner.

With over 1000 registered students, 50 expert tutors and 7 learning partnerships with internationally and locally renowned professional bodies and educational institutions, the Academy of Business Leaders has grown exponentially over the years. Recently, the Academy of Business Leaders continued to add to its accomplishments by acquiring the ACCA Gold status, following a strict application process. Succeeding the Silver status, Gold membership recognises not only the quality of tuition, but also the overall integrated learning process set up to support students in their learning journey. The acquired Gold status acknowledges the outstanding learning support, business development guidance, and quality monitoring provided to students.

As a “globally recognised designation that represents a high standard of excellence and professionalism," (Jamie Ling, Chief Financial Officer, Hong Kong and North East Asia at the Standard Chartered Bank Limited, Hong Kong), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the global professional accounting body. Founded in 1904, the London-based organisation is leading the way in the accountancy profession, recording 7,400 approved employers, 80 accountancy partnerships, 219,000 members and 527,000 students in 179 countries in 2019.

The Academy of Business Leaders offers a range of ACCA courses, from regular ACCA papers to ACCA apprenticeship programmes up to 30 months. As an ACCA Accelerate institution, it also provides a fast- track learning environment for students to acquire the desirable skills and boost their career with an internationally acknowledged skillset. ACCA-certified professionals have been in growing demand globally and, as stated by Abdul Goffar, ACCA’s Head of Western Europe," ACCA’s strategy is all about creating the accountancy profession the world needs, to develop talented people of ability to be the accountants of tomorrow.”
With an exceptional pass rate and high quality training featuring courses in an accelerated and interactive learning environment, expert trainers, tailored course materials, mock exams and excellent student support, the Academy of Business Leaders presents itself as the sole provider of ACCA Accelerate programmes on the Maltese Islands.

“Achieving such an elite status is an incredibly important accomplishment for us at the Academy of Business Leaders and we couldn’t be prouder. We launched the Academy of Business Leaders with the intent to provide professionals with opportunities to increase their awareness of industry issues, learn the skills necessary to handle today’s changes and discover their potential. Six years later, our efforts continue to go into building the talent of tomorrow, bridging the skills gap and creating equal opportunities to students wishing to propel their studies and careers forward. Achieving the Gold ACCA Learning Provider status is both a reflection of all that we’ve accomplished as an educational institution so far, as well as a code for future practice which we’ll continue to exercise to deliver an outstanding learning experience”, expressed Academy of Business Leaders CEO Morgan Parnis.

Launched in 2013 and official ACCA Learning Partner since 2017, the Academy of Business Leaders empowers professionals desiring to further their education and business skills by offering accredited courses in leadership and management, coaching and mentoring, marketing, human resources, employment law and finance.
