As we all know ACCA is a qualification that is globally recognized by many of the countries and as such a qualified ACCA member can get to work in about 170 global countries.
ACCA is considered to be the equivalent of CAs but when we talk about ACCA as a course, it is more flexible in terms of the subjects and examination pattern.
So what would be the future of ACCA? This is one big question that haunts the minds of every ACCA qualified member.
But ACCA has brought in a revolution with respect to accounting as well as finance in terms of career. I personally feel that the ACCA course is very forward-thinking. You will get to understand this if you take a look at the way the subjects are designed in the course. Even the examination focuses on the applicability of the subjects in real-time.
This will make the students and aspirants employable and industry-ready is what many of the financial experts feel. So let’s explore the variety of career options that are available for an ACCA member:
- Accountant management
- Business analyst
- Corporate finance
- Financial planner/advisor
- Auditing / tax consulting
- Subject matter experts
All the above-mentioned options are with respect to global career opportunities. If you are really looking forward to bringing in changes in the financial side of an organization in terms of its financial planning, allocation of resources, providing optimum business solutions, and so on, then you should definitely consider doing ACCA courses.
You can even consider doing a full-time MBA after the ACCA course, but I would personally suggest that you take up an MBA only after you gain practical experience of 2 to 3 years with ACCA.
