At the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) the team is passionate about the opportunities represented by a career in accounting and finance.

ACCA certificates provide a strong and effective approach to upskilling yourself, getting your CV noticed, and increasing your attractiveness to potential employers if you're deciding on a course at university, thinking to make a career move, or returning to the workforce.

What is ACCA?

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants has more than 241,000 fully qualified members and 542,000 future members worldwide. They are among the world’s best-qualified and most highly sought-after accountants, working in every sector you can imagine.

Organisations know and trust our designation. We're out there every day, connecting with businesses large and small, governments, educational establishments and opinion formers. We are on top of emerging trends, legislation and legal requirements, helping to shape them. Because of all this, we can create the

innovative, strategic-thinking accountants our fast-changing world needs.

The UAE is one of the most attractive and dynamic locations for accounting and finance professionals and there is a high demand across the region. It’s our mission to help build the profession and support our members, and as an accountant since my 20s, I have personally experienced how doors open and opportunities arise for those who get qualified.

ACCA members commit to upholding the highest professional and ethical values, and our qualifications help develop business leaders and forward-thinking professionals with the financial, business, and digital expertise essential for the creation of sustainable organisations and flourishing societies.

Our qualifications are recognised, respected and valued around the world.

Most recently, ACCA partnered with the UAE Ministry of Economy to offer one of our certificates as part of new legislation, meaning that everyone applying for an auditing-practising license in UAE tax is required to hold one of ACCA’s trusted certificates.
