MSc in Professional Accountancy

ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) and UoL (the University of London) are offering a ground-breaking Masters' programme to ACCA students, affiliates and members around the world - the MSc in Professional Accountancy.

This is the first for an accountancy body to have collaborated with a university for an integrated qualification; to enable students across the globe to gain a Masters' degree and a Professional Accountancy qualification at the same time.

ACCA students, affiliates and members can complete the Masters in Professional Accountancy degree via a flexible platform and at significantly reduced cost and time. This route will be of value to accountants aspiring to senior roles and enable them to stand out from the crowd in terms of their qualifications.

Dual Recognition

With this MSc, ACCA uniquely and for the first time recognises two MSc modules as counting towards the professional level of the ACCA Qualification. The University of London recognizes ACCA exams as the pre-requisite towards the MSc.

Who will benefit from this program?

ACCA members and affiliates can 'top-up' their professional qualification with this prestigious Masters' degree.

ACCA students who have passed the Applied Skills/ Strategic Professional Skills Essentials (SBL & SBR) of the ACCA qualification can opt to continue towards their ACCA qualification by using MSc Professional Accountancy as an equivalent to two of their final ACCA papers.

The School of Management at University College London is responsible for the academic direction. UCL is ranked seventh in the world by QS World University Rankings 2018.
