5 Benefits of Choosing a Course

1. Extended class schedule reduces time-demands on you

Classes are held once a month on Saturdays for five months. This extended schedule reduces the time-demands normally associated with post-graduate training and makes the courses more suited to the needs of busy professionals with severe time constraints.

2. Extensive learning material provides future reference aids:

The cost includes extensive learning support material (eg: a textbook, on-line access, video tutorials, slides). These provide valuable job-reference tools for the future and will also reduce the need to attend every single class session.

3. Enhance your Resume with a Certificate of Achievement

On successful completion, participants receive a credit-bearing certificate of achievement from Edinburgh Business School, the school of business of the #2 university in Scotland (see sample attached). This is globally accepted and enhances their resumes significantly

4. Increase your professional respect and influence

Courses from the Scottish university system are arguably more in-depth and comprehensive than those from other systems. The extensive coverage of topics then ensures that participants are more knowledgeable and have more expertise in an area than their peers. All our graduates can testify that the EBS courses have widened their knowledge considerably. If you wish, we can refer you to senior professionals who can verify the impact of the programme on their lives

5. Better value for money

The training investment per course is payable in three installments beginning the month before classes start. Group discounts of up to 25% are available. The relative cost makes the EBS option one of the most affordable post-graduate training options that provides the best value-for-money in the Jamaican marketplace today.
