WE DEVELOP INDIVIDUALS AS WHOLE-PERSON
We recognise that ACCA is assessed 100% through exam but that does not stop us to develop our students. How do we do this? Our ACCA Students’ Union has been tasked to build close engagement and fellowship among the students and they are responsible to organise various activities along each academic year. The activities also provide a safe environment for students to pick up important skills like budgetary control (how not to over-spend beyond the funds allocated), how to raise finance (like to get sponsors) – and this alone they have to learn the way to get in touch with corporate bodies, drafting an appealing letter, how to face rejections, negotiation skills and so forth. We see great bonding being formed when the unknowns become close friends. They learn to understand differences occur, just like in the workplace, but also what it takes to tolerate and accept differences. Our lecturers spend time to be attentive to our students. Here, we call students by name. Have a look at our ACCA Students’ Union and their activities. (Click the LINK)

‘Ideally anyone who wishes to have a career in finance and achieve senior management positions should have a formal qualification in accounting and finance,’ says Giles McIntyre, associate director, Investigo.
‘The ACCA Qualification is highly regarded by employers,’ continues Giles. ‘While it’s not impossible to be in a senior management position without one, there is more and more emphasis being placed on qualifications and quite simply more choice available to qualified accountants, than non-qualified. The qualification is assurance for the employer of your technical knowledge, so coupled with your experience they can determine your suitability for a role.’
In developed countries with mature financial and corporate systems, possessing a professional accountancy qualification is standard to be able to compete, says Martin Fox, a manager at recruiters Robert Walters. ‘Recruiters and employers will enquire how long it has taken a candidate to complete ACCA, so I recommended finishing the exams as soon as possible to ensure maximum career and salary development.’
