We are members of the following academic and business organisations
(either at organisation or individual faculty member level):
GBCM has a strategic partnership with Griffith College Dublin, Ireland's largest independent third level institution with over 8,000 students.
The College, which is a designated educational institute of the Higher Education and Training Awards Council in Ireland and is a member of HECA, offers a range of programmes in diverse areas such as Business, Law, Journalism, Design and Computing science. The College enjoys a strong national and international reputation built on over 30 years of experience.
The partnership was formed in order to afford GBCM students the opportunity to graduate with internationally recognised Bachelor degree qualifications (awarded by Griffith College and accredited by HETAC, the third level accrediting body of the Irish government). In addition, through the partnership, GBCM and GCD are working on the development of a number of Bologna Treaty compliant qualifications to facilitate the delivery of comparable business education in diverse locations throughout Europe.
Middlesex was established as a University in 1992, though its roots as an academic institution date back to 1898. It is now widely regarded as an outstanding international provider of higher education with an exceptional academic credentials and highly employable and successful graduates. In 1996 Middlesex was awarded the first of three Queen's Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education, for its innovative provision of Work Based Learning. A further Queen's Anniversary Prize followed in 1998 and a third in 2000. In 2003, the University was given the Queen's Award for Enterprise, for International Trade.
Based in North London, the University recruits widely across the world and works in global partnerships to deliver outstanding higher education in many countries. Internationalism is at the core of Middlesex's mission, which makes it an ideal partner for the GBCM.
Students who successfully complete the first two years of study at GBCM have the option of entering the last year of the following Middlesex programmes:
Globe Business College's cooperation with Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., was established in order to afford GBCM students (who meet specific academic standards) the opportunity to undertake transfer semesters at Northeastern.
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a private research university with 15,000 full-time undergraduate students and 5,400 graduate students. Northeastern's Cooperative Education Programme was ranked among the best in the nation by US News and World Report. In 2006, NU's College of Business Administration was ranked # 15 in the U.S. on academic quality, #1 in the U.S. on quality of internships and #3 in the U.S. on corporate strategy.
As NU combines academic study with a "cooperative education" internship programme, there is potential for transfer students to attain industry placements in the U.S following the semester abroad programme.
The University of California, Riverside is one of 10 universities within the prestigious University of California system. Widely recognised as one of the most ethnically diverse research universities in the nation, UCR's current enrolment is over 19,000 students, with a goal of 21,000 students by 2020. The University is located approximately 50 miles east of downtown Los Angeles and is within easy driving distance of dozens of major cultural and recreational sites, as well as desert, mountain and coastal destinations.
GBCM students on the Business Bachelor Foundation programme can undertake up to two terms at UCR while students on the HNC/HND programmes can do exchange semesters throughout the course of their studies.
As the Higher National Diploma (which is awarded after the first two years on the undergraduate programme) and Advanced Professional Diploma in Management Studies are part of the National Education Framework in England, these qualifications are recognised by both UK and international universities. This means that upon successful completion of these Diplomas, students can transfer to a wide network of Edexcel partner Universities to progress their studies.
Students who undertake the two year Higher National Diploma in Business Studies at GBCM, can enter the third year of business Bachelor programmes in Universities all over the world. For example, Nottingham Trent University, University of Sunderland, University of Northhampton and Bournemouth University (The Business School) in England have all agreed final year entry onto degree programmes to HND students who have studied business.
Likewise a student who successfully obtains the Advanced Professional Diploma in Management Studies you can opt to continue their studies at Master level with some of the top universities in Europe and further afield (online and distance options are available). For example the University of Sunderland offers a one year top up MBA programme to holders of the Advanced Professional Diploma.
