ACCA Foundation in Accountancy (FIA)

ACCA Foundations in Accountancy (FiA)

FIA is the set of entry - level awards developed by the ACCA, with the needs and expectations of employers in mind. In line with current best practice and to meet the recommendations of the International Federation of Accountants, a Professionalism and Ethics Module has been included.

Talent development

The FIA will help your organisation reach new talent pools in the labour market, such as school leavers and career changers, and enable you to identify the key talents within the company. Non-financial managers must have a good grounding in finance and accounting techniques in order to make effective business decisions – the FIA can provide this.


An internationally recognised professional qualification will send a positive signal to prospective employees, and the modular system of the FIA enables the design of a specific curriculum for different employees or job roles.


The FIA exams are all computer based exams and students can sit them at any time in our accredited CBE centre in Budapest. This provides students and employers better flexibility. The test duration is 2 hours and results are available immediately after the test is finished.

Administration Support

PwC’s Academy provides administrative support throughout the study, including exam enrolment, communication with tutors, registration guide, providing information about results as well as providing comprehensive reports to management.

Certified Accounting Technician (CAT)

CAT is the highest award available for FIA students. It is designed for those who aspire to be an accounting technician leading effective decision making. After acquiring the Diploma in Accounting and Business, students have to choose two additional exams to receive the CAT qualification.
