What is ACCA and Why you should take up the programme
Established in 1904, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), based in the UK, is one of the world’s largest global professional accounting body that offers the Chartered Accountant qualification. ACCA qualifications are internationally recognised, and graduates of the ACCA programme generally possess a formidable reputation in the market for being highly skilled. As Malaysia’s top regulatory body for the accountancy profession, the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) recognises the ACCA qualification for the purpose of becoming a licensed Chartered Accountant (CA) in Malaysia. It is also recognised by Malaysian Public Service Department (or JPA) for the purpose of employment in the public service sector. ACCA students who pass the ACCA professional level can definitely look forward to a wide variety of enriching career choices available in Malaysia and abroad. (link to ACCA Malaysia: )

Experience shared
by Crescendo students


The Future Accounting Professional programme provides an excellent working experience without denying the importance of one’s educational growth. It brings out the maximum performance in me to strive toward my goals. The firm I worked at, Grant Thornton MSW, gave me a wonderful opportunity to serve in their Audit department, which enabled me expand my skills not only in accounting but auditing too. This splendid programme has helped me to grow both professionally and personally.

I’m glad I joined the programme. It gave me the opportunity to pursue a fully sponsored education in professional accounting while acquiring real life work experience in an accounting firm (Rockacc Solutions Sdn. Bhd.) for a year at the same time. The head of this programme pays close attention to our well-being and works hard to ensure our training success. I also had a pleasant experience with the company I worked for, as the staff were unhesitant to provide guidance whenever I faced a problem.

This is a great programme. It serves as a good complement to the things I haven’t had the chance to learn during my secondary school years. PwC (Pricewaterhouse Cooper), the firm where we had our internship done was also kind enough to organize plenty of outdoor activities to get our social skills refined so we could be more confident when dealing with clients or doing presentations. More importantly, we get to further our study in professional accounting for free while earning salaries, and gain on-the-job experience, by working in a real accounting firm.
