IAB played a huge role in following my ACCA path and I am extremely happy that it operates in Armenia and tries to raise the quality of workforce in Armenia. ACCA gives a competitive advantage among other candidates when one is going to be chosen for a position. I can surely say that ACCA gives you the feeling of being very powerful and confident; not physical power but the power of being heard. Thanks to ACCA, I was promoted from an accountant to the assistant of finance director.
"My journey with IAB started back in 2017, when 18 year-old me and my team won the Young Manager Challenge organized by International Business Academy. From that point on I realized that Project Management will be my career choice. It's important to get prepared with IAB and not on your own, as group studies motivate you to do your best. Besides at IAB you can find like-minded people and expand your network. Group learning and analyzing the mistakes solidifies your knowledge. IAB students benefit from the methodology of processing a great amount of information, a lot of books, guides and quizzes centralized in one place. Here you can find wonderful support on a path towards Project Management."
Based on my observations, in Armenia, most individuals who occupy leadership and management positions are primarily high performers in their work area and hence their understanding, knowledge and experience of management and leadership is based on their hands-on and on the job learning.
Professional qualifications like CMI provide an opportunity for this leaders and managers to consolidate and upgrade their skills, competencies and qualities based on tried and trusted strategies and latest thinking in these critical roles for more effectiveness.
IAB CMI sessions provide a unique opportunity for professionals from diverse work areas to get together, network and share learning and experiences and to me this greatly adds to the value of the offered professional development activity.
I must say all the units covered were enlightening and greatly added to my knowledge and understanding of the specific areas in the field
Having background as a language specialist and working in different spheres I chose Oxford Brookes Bachelor's degree programme, realizing that this is a real chance to get sustainable and prospective job in finance.
I appreciate a couple of things that is worth to mention about IAB: intensive studies, socializing, meeting with great professionals including trainers and students, etc. International Qualifications, like ACCA, have an integral part in having successful career development in finance, audit and accounting and be competitive in the market. Through my ACCA studies I became more professional, target oriented, hardworking, and got promoted in my current company.
Professional training centres make it easy to overcome all the difficulties during the studies and IAB International Academy of Business is a good example for that. ACCA gives you knowledge and teaches you to think in a different way in your profession. I chose ACCA because it can give me the knowledge and experience I desire. ACCA is the key to becoming a competitive specialist not only in Armenia, but also in global labor market. This year I got a promotion in my current company, in which, undoubtedly, my ACCA studies had a huge impact. In my opinion, studying is always important in changing business conditions constantly and ACCA is one of the perfect means to keep up with the changing conditions, so I strongly recommend studying ACCA.
When I decided to take the Project Management Professional PMP® certification exam, I choose IAB's Project Management Program. I appreciated the fact that the course was held over multiple sessions as opposed to the more common Bootcamp-style courses․
I’d just like to take the time to say thank you to IAB. The program was well organized and structured towards achieving PMP® certification. I am very satisfied with the content. The format was great – interactive lecture with real-life examples. The course helped me to increase my confidence level to pass this exam. Thank you very much for great program and trainers.
