What is the CFAB?

The CFAB was launched by ICAEW in September 2008 in the UK as a new stand-alone business qualification. It provides essential knowledge in the fundamentals of finance, accounting and business, and can be used as an entry route into the ACA programme.


The CFAB for school leavers

Following the launch of the CFAB in UK, Sunway College formulated an innovative programme for school leavers. This specially designed programme is a feeder into the ICAEW and provides school leavers with an accelerated route to the ACA qualification.
