 The Academy of Business Training is a leading provider of short-term (3 – 5 days) college level accounting and treasury courses. We use the same textbooks as major colleges and universities. The most important difference between us and a college or university is ABT instructors have a minimum of 30 years business experience and have held a senior management position for at least 5 years in the course they are teaching. Most business school instructors come from an educational background and have very little on the job experience (remember the movie Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield).  When you take an ABT business training class you are learning from a business professional trained in facilitative learning....not educators with no experience.
