Our global reputation is so strong that we now have over 188,000 members and 480,000 students in 181 countries. We also work with 7,110 approved employers and over 80 accountancy partnerships worldwide.
Our mission is to give you greater career opportunity through qualifications that are recognised and recommended around the world.

This has been proved to greatly increase the opportunities for career progression and reward.
Championing equality and diversity
Promoting greater career opportunity differentiates ACCA from many other professional bodies that focus on exclusivity. We believe that everyone should have access to exceptional qualifications that give professionals and their employers confidence. As a result, we're proud to have one of the most diverse member and student bodies in the world.
Innovative studying and support
No other professional accountancy body offers the same level of studying and support flexibility. We provide full-time, part-time and self-study options, including ACCA-X - an exciting online learning programme providing high-quality, free and affordable courses. We offer extensive support online and through our 95 offices and centres globally, and are the only accountancy body with a student contact centre operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Reputation by association
Our qualifications embody ACCA's reputation for excellence, integrity and accountability - a reputation you become associated with the moment you begin studying. This contributes to the greater career opportunities that ACCA students benefit from.
At the forefront of the profession
ACCA is also seen as a driving force at the forefront of accountancy. Alongside our educational opportunities, we champion a well-regulated and ethical profession that delivers the highest standards of expertise and client care. We advise and support members, governments, organisations, regulators and employers, and encourage and deliver research that helps to inform and shape the future of accountancy and business.
