The United States of America has a long and varied history as a cultural and economic leader and attracts many people of talent and diversity every year.

ACCA USA was formally established in California in 1987. Today, ACCA USA’s small, dedicated team is based in four cities while members are concentrated into 12 chapters throughout the United States. Our market is composed almost entirely of expatriates from various countries where ACCA is one of the market-leading qualifications.

While ACCA is indeed a global passport to a career in finance and accounting, many members find that the ACCA qualification may not be as visible within the United States as their home country. Our members work in a variety of public and private industries and many seek one of the national qualifications – US CPA and CMA or a speciality qualification such as ABFA.

Migrating to the USA and finding employment that takes advantage of your hard-earned qualification will take effort but can also be extremely rewarding. Many of our members already work with a multi-national company and are able to transfer within their company while others seek employment with the Big Four.

There are many roads to success, but it will take the same determination and application that you used to obtain your qualification. ACCA USA is always working to bring larger recognition to the ACCA qualification but there is always more to do.

These resources were developed with you in mind after consulting with many recently migrated members. If you are unable to find the answer to your question within these pages, please contact us at
