Q & A – Is ACCA right for you?

ACCA enquiry 2

Hello Julius,

Anyone can become a chartered accountant, regardless of your first degree. I personally know of two people who studied Microbiology, and Chemistry at university, and are now half-way through with their chartered accountancy qualification.

You didn’t specify if your interest in financial investment is career related, if so, you may want to consider  qualifications in Financial analysis or Investment; CFA, and CISI are two of many well known qualifications available.  Also, most countries have chartered tax qualifications, if you want recognised tax qualifications, so you should look into that.

Your decision should be based on desired growth in your current career, or your aspirations for a future career.  If your interest in financial investment is because you currently work in that industry, and you wish to grow your career in that industry, then, look into qualifications designed for that industry.  If however, you have your sights set on a career in accounting, you can’t go wrong with a chartered accountancy qualification.
