DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. – (June 4, 2014) – Becker Professional Education, a global leader in professional education and a part of DeVry Education Group, today announced six new relationships in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean. Becker is now aligned with Morgan International (Lebanon), GM Global Consulting Multipurpose Limited (Nigeria), Career Point University (India), EduPristine (India), SKANS School of Accountancy (Pakistan) and Global Accountancy College (Jamaica).
These relationships further expand Becker’s accounting training platform to reach more prospective Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) students around the world. “The accounting profession continues to be a vital career in the global economy, increasing the demand for quality training solutions,” said Matt Kinnich, vice president of International and Business Development at Becker. “As a global leader, we recognize this need and have established relationships in key markets to make our ACCA offerings more accessible to students pursuing globally recognized accounting qualifications.”
Upon acquiring ATC International (now known as Becker Professional Development International, Ltd) in May 2011, Becker was granted Gold Approved Learning Partner – content (ALP-c) status for its ACCA study materials. ACCA awards this status to recognize study materials’ quality, relevance to the ACCA exams and alignment with the ACCA syllabus and study guides.
Becker’s offerings include a variety of comprehensive learning tools and study formats to help candidates pass the ACCA exams. For example, an interactive e-book uses advanced technology to embed lectures and integrate questions, complementing a live class or serving as a stand-alone online learning course. “We developed the e-book in response to students’ demands for better technology and alternative ways to study,” Kinnich said. “The interactive format lets students fit study sessions easily into their busy schedules. We will continue to serve our students through innovative learning solutions to help them prepare for their exams and obtain the ACCA Qualification.”
The formation of new relationships and the creation of unique new products are part of an ongoing effort to grow Becker’s accounting offerings and ensure that students are prepared for success in the global business community. Becker continues to consider and evaluate partnerships in strategic locations around the world.
