The ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is one of the largest and fastest growing international accountancy bodies. It is recognised and respected in 170 countries and currently has over 500 000 members and students.
The ACCA Qualification is designed to provide the accounting knowledge, skills and professional values which will deliver finance professionals who are capable of building successful careers across all sectors, whether they are working in the public or private sectors, practising in accounting firms, or pursuing a career in business.
The ACCA Qualification embeds the global accounting education standards set by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC). There is a strong focus on professional values, ethics, and governance. These skills are essential as the profession moves towards strengthened codes of conduct, regulation, and legislation - with an increasing focus on professionalism and ethics in accounting. These are examined at the highest level in the ACCA Qualification and are a core element of your practical experience requirements.
The ACCA program is most suitable for those that aspire to become professionals in any sector of business. No previous knowledge of accounting or finance is required to start ACCA studies. All you need is the motivation to make a significant investment in time to achieve success. Whether you are a high school or university graduate, or already working professionally in business, ACCA provides routes into the profession for everyone.
