The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the global body for professional accountants. It offers business-relevant, first-choice qualifications to people of application, ability and ambition around the world who seek a rewarding career in accountancy, finance and management.

The ACCA Qualification will prepare a financial professional with the most up-to-date skills with a much deeper and more rounded approach than the purely technical.  Sunway TES CAE is committed to nurturing quality graduates who are ready for employment as soon as they leave the Sunway Campus.  Subjects that develop the soft skills of students have been incorporated into the ACCA syllabus with the aim to prepare Sunway TES CAE’s ACCA students with a range of graduate-level skills required for the job market.  These include research methodology, critical thinking, evaluation and analysis skills, professional presentation and communication skills, and PowerPoint Skills.

ACCA students who have completed Fundamentals Level (Knowledge module and Skills module) of the ACCA examinations will be awarded the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University (OBU) upon completion of a Research and Analysis Project assessed by OBU, UK.  The Oxford Brookes B. Sc (Hons) Degree in Applied Accounting is a highly regarded qualification, which is based on practical, professional, employer-driven accounting requirements.  It enables students to prove that not only have they mastered the knowledge required for the degree, but also that they have the key skills required by employers.

Upon completion of ACCA Professional Scheme and three years of relevant, and supervised practical experience, graduates will obtain ACCA status.  They can then apply to become members of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA), enabling them to use the prestigious designatory initials CA(M) or Chartered Accountant (Malaysia).
