ACCA, also known as Global CA, is a global certification from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) – equivalent to a CA degree in the candidate's respective country. It is a globally recognised certification (applicable in 180+ countries) that allows you to work as a CA in any part of the world.

The ACCA certification  opens you up to endless opportunities in the finance & accounting industry. 

The scope of ACCA in India has been tremendous, especially over the last few years. Candidates are hired by leading companies like PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, EY, Grant Thornton, BDO, etc. They are hired for various profiles such as Accounting Advisory, Risk Advisory, Statutory Audit, Internal Audit, Forensic Auditing, Mergers & Acquisitions, Valuations, and more. Their salary package (₹5 to 8 LPA) and profile are nearly identical to those of a CA. We have helped hundreds of our students – semi-qualified and fully qualified alike – get placed in these top organisations. 

Competent Chartered Accountants are always in demand – both in India and abroad. Also, the global recognition of all ACCA certifications ensures work opportunities all over the world.

While ACCA members do have signing authority in many countries such as the UK, Dubai, Singapore, etc., they do not have that authority in India.
