Programme Description

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is one of the world's leading international accountancy bodies, operating in over 170 countries. Its recognition under UK legislation empowers it to regulate its members to undertake statutory audit and to conduct investment business.

Glasgow School for Business and Society has been granted Premier status as a tuition provider by ACCA.

The modern accounting profession is dynamic and accountancy skills are at the very heart of business planning. Chartered Certified Accountants are key participants in management today.

Because of the flexibility of the qualification which consists of examinations, ethics and experience, there is a wide range of opportunities available to ACCA members in the business world. They can move into general management in the public and private sectors and may have opportunities to specialise in audit, taxation or information technology.

This programme aims to be flexible to suit student and employer needs, and thus a range of Day Release, Afternoon, Evening and Revision courses are offered.
