Choosing the right qualification
- How do I know which qualification is right for me?
This depends on a number of factors, such as academic background and employment status. Check out our online guide for tailored advice.
- What's the difference between ACA, ACCA and CIMA?
The ACA is generally regarded as the superior accountancy qualification and most graduates joining an accountancy firm will study for ACA. The ACCA is also a technical qualification giving you the ability to set up in practice. CIMA is more of a business qualification and is better suited to those working in management roles.
