  3. Enhanced competency  – Most of the professional accounting courses focus on the subjects relevant to Public Accounting, and less weightage is given to topics related to Management Accounting. ACCA course focuses on all the aspects of accounting, whether Public Accounting or Management Accounting. You do not need to pursue two different courses to master the two segments of accounting. You can learn both Public Accounting and Management Accounting in depth with the ACCA course.
  4. Global Recognition  – ACCA course provides you recognition globally and is the most preferred qualification in 159 countries. ACCA has members and students across 178 countries. ACCA professionals get preferential immigration to Australia, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Ireland, and many other countries. ACCA has a wide network of more than 7600 Approved Employers worldwide, who provide job opportunities to ACCA students and members.
  5. International Accounting and Auditing Standards  – ACCA course covers International Accounting and Auditing Standards, which are acceptable in the majority of the countries. Country specific accounting standards and principles are only used by companies operating in those countries. It is difficult to learn different accounting standards as per the country of work, thus hampering your global career. Since International Accounting Standards are used by several countries, candidates have better scope for a global career.
