ACCA partners with New York based university

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Pace University have launched an accreditation programme, the first offered by the ACCA at a US higher education institution.

Graduate and undergraduate students of the New York-based University's Lubin School of Business's Department of Accounting will be able to complete coursework qualifying them for exemptions from ACCA exams, starting in autumn 2015.

The ACCA expects the programme to attract a number of international students interested in obtaining a degree while working towards their qualification.

The association cited a recent survey it conducted which showed almost three quarters of current ACCA students currently studying outside their home country would have been interested in pursuing the qualification in the United States.

Pace joins the 600-strong network of academic institutions affiliated with ACCA globally.

ACCA market director for Western Europe and North America Mark Cornell described the partnership as the start of a new era for ACCA in the US. Lubin School of Business dean Neil Braun also welcomed the partnership, commenting that the two organisations have a shared interest in education and the "sustainable development of the accounting profession".
