Programmes Available

  • Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Qualification


    ACCA enables members to attain a premier professional qualification in accountancy and provides graduates with knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be finance professionals in an organisation.

    Graduates with an ACCA qualification are likely to gain employment with relative ease, be it locally or internationally. It also paves the way to many sectors of work - financial or corporate.
  • Certified Accounting Technician (CAT)


    CAT is a technical / diploma-level qualification which provides a comprehensive introduction to accountancy. It is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in finance or to gain an accelerated route to the ACCA qualification.

ACCA & CAT Qualifications Pathway

As an introductory course to accountancy, the Advanced Level of CAT is equivalent to the first year of a university degree programme. Consequently, CAT graduates are allowed to move directly to Part 2 of the ACCA Professional Scheme exams.

ACCA Members

ACCA affiliates, with a minimum of 3 years of relevant supervised practical experience (which may be pre-, during or post-examination / studies), are required to submit their Practical Experience Requirement (PER) to ACCA to demonstrate sufficient competency to merit membership. The standard of competence required consists of a range of technical, management and personal skills which are essential for all aspiring members.

Upon approval, ACCA graduates may add the prestigious designatory initials ACCA to their names. They may also apply for membership to the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) and use the designatory initials ‘Chartered Accountant (Malaysia)’.

Career Opportunities

Graduates with relevant practical experience may be employed in an organisation of their choice - international professional services firms, multinational conglomerates, and private and public sectors. They may even be self-employed and manage their own business in any industry or sector.

A career in finance will not put you in a box or limit your options. With the right qualification - ACCA - you can gain employment in any country. Accountancy is one of the few professions that transcend national borders. Finance professionals are in demand in places far afield internationally.
