Over two years, we conducted ground-breaking global research into the future of the profession. Our research delivered authoritative findings built on the insight of our members.

By collaborating with and listening to our members, employers, and learning providers as well as other stakeholders, we’ve evolved the qualification to ensure it continues to lead the way while maintaining the same rigour and robustness that it’s always had.

Through your vast experience, leading professional insights and by always staying up to date through CPD, ACCA members have proven their ability to lead and shape the profession.

We encourage you to register as an advocate and make use of these resources to continue to lead the way.

ACCA focuses on the big themes affecting the accountancy profession

Every three months, we’ll focus on themes that cover four broad areas:

  • the power of digital technology (April to June 2019)
  • the power of connections and partnerships (July to September 2019)
  • the power of ethics, trust and sustainability (October to December 2019)
  • the power of careers, skills and employability (January 2020 to March 2020)

Our first theme, ‘the power of digital’, is arguably the biggest factor shaping the future of the profession and the future roles ACCA students and members will perform.

Tomorrow’s accountants will inherit a world that’s more digital than ever and we want to help them maximise the opportunities this presents for their work and career. That’s why ACCA is tuned in to the latest developments from machine learning to audit and technology. And our qualification and CPD are ceaselessly evolving to ensure our members are at the cutting edge.

So as an advocate, it’s important we provide you with the tools and messages that can help you share your professional body’s key insights and thinking about our brand themes.
