Mr Ahuja explains, “ACCA is the global body for professional accountants with over 178,000 members and 455,000 students in 181 countries. We have 92 offices and centres globally all offering localized support based on international accounting standards making them globally relevant.”
“ACCA qualifications are recognised by key regulatory and education authorities around the world and we have joint membership of other international accountancy bodies,” adds ISDC Director- Strategy Mr Joseph Tom.
Vice –Chancellor Dr Stephen Mavely explains further saying, “The MOUs will set in motion our plan to offer a B Com in International Finance and Accounting (with or without the benefit of additional certification by ACCA who offer exemption of 6 papers for our students who pay for and opt for acquiring ACCA Certification). The students who opt for such certification will have to pay additional fees as well as appear for 8 more papers of ACCA Certification Programme.”
