Overview of course

The SBL exam is designed to mirror the workplace and presents the student with real-world challenges. Students will complete a number of tasks and must demonstrate that they have the right technical, ethical and professional skills to add value to the organisations they work in.

 

The syllabus brings together core areas from governance, risk and strategy, links to other leadership areas such as organisational control, innovation and change management –and uses new technologies and data analytics.

 

Ethics remain crucial. ACCA pioneered ethics when it introduced the Professional Ethics Module, and it remains a core element of the ACCA Qualification.

 

All of these elements combine to produce a powerful, unique way of assessing whether a student is ready to hit the ground running when they start their career.

 

The main technical areas are:

  • leadership
  • governance
  • strategy
  • risk
  • technology
  • data analytics
  • organisational control
  • finance and innovation
  • change management.

 

But the SBL case study will also assess candidates on their professional skills:

  • analysis
  • scepticism
  • evaluation
  • commercial acumen
  • communication.

 

Training will be delivered at West Suffolk College over one day a week.

Further course detail

Integrated Case Study - 4 hour computer based exam

 

The SBL syllabus is examined using a 100% integrated case study. Candidates will be marked on both their technical ability and their professional skills.

The exam will require candidates to take on various roles within the main organisation, or in connected organisations such as consultancy practices, audit or regulatory authorities, or other connected stakeholders.

 

Tasks set will be practical, requiring students to apply any models, theories or techniques they deem appropriate to complete the task. Markers will recognise this so that when completing a task they will expect a variety of approaches, but marks will be awarded for how the task is completed and whether the objectives of the task have been achieved. This ensures that students take a real-world commercial approach to addressing and completing the tasks set as would be expected in the workplace.
