ACCA
(ASSOCIATION OF CHARTERED CERTIFIED ACCOUNTANTS)

ACCA was founded in London in 1904 in order to promote ethics, moral standards and professionalism in the community of financiers and finance managers. ACCA is a powerful organization, comprising over 370,000 members and students in over 170 countries on all continents. ACCA has been gradually building its popularity in Poland, especially since the accession of Poland to the European Union and the opening of Polish borders. This growing popularity is undoubtedly related to the prestigious character of the ACCA Qualification. In Poland, ACCA is joined by around 140 new members every year and has a total of over 700 members and 1300 students.

THE ACCA QUALIFICATION? IT IS WORTH IT!
ACCA IS A CONFIRMATION OF HIGH QUALIFICATIONS IN FINANCE, WHICH CAN POSITIVELY IMPACT THE COMPANY'S FUTURE.
Due to the fact that ACCA enables the students not only to gain a thorough knowledge of finance, but also to learn financial strategies and the methods of applying financial knowledge in the management process, ACCA members are highly valued and sought employees, co-workers and business partners. ACCA alumni are highly paid and rapidly promoted owing to their thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of law, taxes, auditing, financial strategies etc. as well as their skills, which are required of financial managers. Completing the ACCA Professional Scheme is also a confirmation of the knowledge of International Accounting Standards and International Financial Reporting Standards.
Today, the ACCA Qualification has an elite character in Poland, but in a few years time it will become a requirement. This is evident when one considers the rapid growth of the number of ACCA members and students.

IF YOU ARE AN ACCA HOLDER, EMPLOYERS ARE OPENING THEIR DOORS FOR YOU!
DO YOU WANT TO WORK FOR THE BEST COMPANIES? CHOOSE ACCA! THEY HAVE ALREADY CHOSEN...
The ACCA Qualification has been available in Poland for the last seven years. For the last two years, ACCA has had its official representation in Poland (in Warsaw). At first, the ACCA program was popular primarily among the employees of the ‘big four’ audit firms and international corporations. However, the awareness of the need to have professional qualifications has been spreading, and now the ACCA Professional Scheme is also popular among university students as well as the employees of smaller firms. Currently, there are several corporations which have committed to use ACCA standards. These corporations include: Philips Poland Sp. Z o.o., PZU S.A., Philip Morris Poland S.A., Ernst & Young Poland, Citi Handlowy, Capgemini Poland Sp. Z o.o., Deloitte Poland, Cargill Poland Sp. Z o.o., Adidas Poland Sp. Z o.o. and KPMG.
