All of iAcademy’s qualifications have been articulated with advanced standing into the University of Wolverhampton’s degree. Hence, students who have successfully complete iAcademy’s Advanced Diploma in Business Administration would enter University of Wolverhampton’s BA (Hons) International Business Management programme in the final year of the programme.
