Looking after the interests of members in more than 170 countries, ACCA is the global body for professional accountants. As you read this more than 325,000 students are studying for the ACCA Qualification worldwide, preparing to become the next generation of FDs, CFOs, CEOs and Partners. There are two important steps to becoming a professional accountant: passing exams and undertaking relevant work experience. Both the exams and the experience requirements are set and approved by ACCA and meet industry requirements. We are the source of your technical knowledge and will provide you with the context in which to use your expertise. We ensure that your qualification is rigorous, business focused and delivers the skills employers are looking for.
ACCA, the global body for professional accountants, offers a future that is diverse, challenging and full of opportunity.
As a global professional accountancy body, ACCA is better positioned to benefit graduates both now and in the future. The global portability of the qualification means that you can seek opportunities both home and abroad. Economic growth in the UK may be slow, but the predicted growth of the BRIC economies means that there are increasing opportunities globally for accountants. ACCA has been in China for over 20 years and Russia for 10 years and our reputation in those countries is stronger than any other international accountancy body.
ACCA’s flexible approach means that there are no artificial barriers to prevent you from qualifying whatever you face in the short-term. ACCA recognises the value of undergraduate work placements by allowing any relevant experience gained whilst on placement to count towards the Practical Experience Requirements (PER) for the ACCA Qualification. Any student wishing to record their work experience whilst on a placement or internship, needs to join the free ACCA accelerate lite scheme in order to get access to a Trainee Development Matrix.
Also exemptions from a relevant degree mean fewer exams for students to sit. This could be particularly attractive to SMEs who may not have large training budgets. As the qualification isn’t tied into a training contract, graduates can move between jobs and be assured that the work and effort that they have put into their qualification won’t be lost.
