Syllabus




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.

Passing 12th board examination in commerce opens up a lot of avenues. Studying ACCA is one such avenue. Joining ACCA classes in Mumbai opens up a lot of opportunities. Going for a simple graduation is not only mainstream, but also takes more time than completing ACCA. ACCA helps students to create a great network and build the necessary skills to become successful in their careers. The ACCA levels are designed in a way that they become applicable to everyone. ACCA classes in Delhi provide the necessary education for students preparing to launch their careers.

Throughout the ACCA journey, students will not only learn about the course material but are free to develop their careers in other ways - get jobs or complete their education. The flexible schedule of the course, along with other perks, makes this a great option after the 12th. When the question of ACCA vs CFA arises, students passing their 12th boards cannot apply for CFA, while ACCA remains applicable.

ACCA is recognized in 181 countries throughout the world. ACCA is a professional qualification, and it is recognized in Canada. More than 200,000 members are present, and you will find a good network of professionals in the country. An ACCA course in Delhi creates a good opening for a student to build their career. Anyone who has completed their 12th boards can pursue the ACCA course. You can learn more about the ACCA course details directly from the official website.

ACCA is not only directly recognized, but also can be converted into a CPA Canada because of memorandum of association between the two bodies, making it a no brainer.

But, what is ACCA? ACCA stands for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. Not only is it recognized in Canada, but the association is also connected to plenty of accounting bodies throughout the world. ACCA classes in Mumbai will definitely pave the way for a good career in Canada. A lot of employers trust the knowledge and skills parted by the certification.

ACCA is a course that can create a bright accounting future for professionals. With good ACCA classes in Mumbai, a professional can build the required skills to work with the best employers. After clearing all the ACCA levels, you have multiple options in front of you. A great choice would be to opt for an MBA. The MBA course will get you the perfect touch in your resume to bag a high-paying salary. During the ACCA duration, you can actually be involved in studying for your degree course or be employed in a job.

The sound skills you learn through the ACCA duration also make you prepared to launch your own company. In fact, a lot of people go on this route. Another option is the CFA charter, if you are looking to venture into investments and portfolio management. Investment banks pay huge salaries to employees, making it a great option for professionals. This means you avoid the ACCA vs CFA battle completely just by doing one after the other. CFA is better suited for someone who has gained some primary experience.

When it comes to accounting, two certified courses are well-known. One is CPA - Certified Public Accountant, and the other one is ACCA - Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. CPA chooses a field in finance like Taxation, Auditing, or Management Accounting and is offered by the American Institute of CPA. Through ACCA classes in Mumbai, you can learn about similar subjects and be certified by the ACCA association. You will, however, need to clear the ACCA levels. Proper ACCA coaching can make the clearing of the levels easier.

ACCA online classes are great devices to make you better prepared for ACCA. While the CPA is a great course, a lot of people prefer ACCA due to better flexibility. Also, the course is longer and more detailed. CPA caters to people who have already gained a few years of experience and is not very suited to beginners.
