The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) was founded in 1904 and is now one of the largest professional accountancy body recognised internationally with over 428,000 students and 162,000 members operating in 173 countries. Consequently, graduates of the ACCA, with the relevant approved practical experiences, can act as public accountants, both locally and internationally.
ACCA students who have completed Fundamentals Level (Knowledge module and Skills module) of the ACCA examinations will be awarded the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University (OBU) upon completion of a Research and Analysis Project assessed by OBU, UK. The Oxford Brookes B. Sc (Hons) Degree in Applied Accounting is a highly regarded qualification, which is based on practical, professional, employer-driven accounting requirements. It enables students to prove that not only have they mastered the knowledge required for the degree, but also that they have the key skills required by employers.
Upon completion of ACCA Professional Scheme and three years of relevant, and supervised practical experience, graduates will obtain ACCA status. They can then apply to become members of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MA), enabling them to use the prestigious designatory initials CA(M) or Chartered Accountant (Malaysia).
