Karachi, June 17, 2013 (PPI-OT): A new award called the Foundation Diploma is launched by ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). The Foundation Diploma provides essential knowledge and skills for those students who have completed Intermediate, Matriculation or O ‘levels and a clear entry route onto ACCA’s main accountancy qualification called the ACCA Qualification which is Masters equivalent as recognised by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.
Rehan Uddin, Head of ACCA Karachi says: “We want all our aspiring finance professionals here in Pakistan to have every opportunity for success, so we have been working closely with learning partners here to develop this Foundation Diploma. This Diploma offers the best preparation for students to progress to the Master’s Degree level ACCA Qualification. It is important that students have the relevant knowledge and skills to enable them to advance onto this challenging qualification, and the Foundation Diploma offers just that.”
Students will be expected to take all seven exams to gain the Foundation Diploma and will then be eligible for the ACCA Qualification. With computer based exams available all year, and paper exams twice a year, the Foundation Diploma student could complete the entire Diploma in less than 12 months. Good luck from ACCA Pakistan to all the students for their forthcoming exam results!
