Upon graduation, you will gain maximum exemptions- no institution offers more exemptions from Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) exams.

When you graduate you will be awarded up to nine exemptions from ACCA and it is possible to become a qualified accountant within two years of graduation. This means that in a period of five years you can achieve a good honours degree and a prestigious accounting qualification.
