Global learning organisation InterActive and KPMG in India had established an initiative to deliver online accountancy and finance programmes in India. It combines their expertise to equip finance and accountancy professionals with the skills and qualifications sought by global employers. Under this initiative, they are offering an ACCA preparation program.
Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is a globally recognised qualification founded in 1904 in the UK. ACCA has over 178,000 members and 455,000 students in 181 countries, with more than 8,500 Approved Employers worldwide who provide employee development to its affiliates and members.
ACCA is the ideal solution for accounting, finance, and management professionals who are looking to develop their careers, and provides you with the skills needed to increase your earning potential and find new job opportunities within the international accountancy industry.
When you become ACCA qualified you’ll be in possession of knowledge that can be applied to any business, which means you are free to choose which type of accountancy role and organisation you want to work for. The qualification also places strong focus on professional values, ethics, and governance – essential at a time when the international accounting profession is moving towards strengthened codes of conduct, regulation and legislation. Plus, when you become ACCA qualified, you’ll join a global professional organisation with access to unlimited networking opportunities and ongoing career support.
The programme is designed to deliver a learning model through which students can access online lectures broadcast live from InterActive’s studios, along with a series of events and master-classes led by professionals from KPMG in India.
Students will be able to benefit from the support and guidance of experienced KPMG accountants, who can contextualise theory with real-life application and provide relevant insights into the Indian accounting industry.
Alongside tuition and training sessions, the InterActive KPMG suite includes live Q&A sessions, marked mock exams, a course library, online study materials, and access to a global community of students online.
Vitaly Klopot, chief operating officer at InterActive, announced: “Future accountants and finance professionals will be given the opportunity to secure highly sought-after qualifications and advance their careers to the next level using the resources of Interactive and KPMG in India. Research shows that the ACCA qualification is one of the most recommended of its kind for professional accountants. We are delighted to be working with KPMG in India to deliver this programme and look forward to increasing the number of ACCA-qualified professionals in India.”
According Mr Klopot, the alliance is likely to make the courses more accessible and affordable for India’s growing community of aspiring accountants to excel at a global level. It will also give a tremendous value addition to Indian companies that are increasingly employing ACCA qualified resources.
