Taylor’s College takes it up a notch with its ACCA Foundation in Accounting programme

Published by Afterschool.my on Mar 14, 2023, 04:07 pm

Becoming an accountant is a highly stable career choice, given the role of tracking all company finances and serving as the backbone for all sorts of businesses. The industry also presents promising opportunities for career professions such as corporate financial consultancy, audit and finance management. 

For this reason, many Malaysians favour accountancy as their chosen profession. However, this results in accountancy becoming a highly competitive field where it can be difficult to find job opportunities. 

Taylor’s College offers high-school graduates an accelerated pathway to an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification, one of the premier methods for accounting hopefuls eager to stand out amongst their peers.

An ACCA certification allows you to become globally recognised as a capable accountant, opening opportunities to build successful careers both locally and overseas.

This pathway is known as the ACCA Foundation in Accounting (ACCA FIA), a year-long entry-level programme where students take their first step towards becoming competent accountants with an attentive and flexible mentality. 

Obtaining an ACCA FIA qualification also provides exemptions for certain subjects later in your path towards a full-fledged ACCA certification, such as from the Applied Knowledge Module.

If you are concerned about lacking prior accounting experience, the ACCA FIA curriculum is designed to guide students through basic accounting principles from the ground up.

Taylor’s College welcomes students of all academic backgrounds to hone their accounting skills with its capable lecturers and inclusive learning environment.
