Ways to partner with us

We work with universities all over the world to enhance both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Two approaches we take are:

Aligning your finance and accountancy programmes with ACCA

We assess your course syllabus – and if it aligns with our qualification, we can award your students with exemptions from specific ACCA exams up to the Strategic Professional Level papers. This will fast-track their journey to membership once they graduate – so they can start their careers in finance and accountancy more quickly.

ACCA has a separate facility to assess the syllabus of any existing or proposed finance and accounting course content. We will then award the appropriate level of exemptions for the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills level exams.

This pathway will fast track students to qualifying and ACCA has an Accelerate Programme that reduces the fees to make this a very attractive student proposition

Embedding ACCA into a Master’s programme

We work with you to co-create a programme where students study for their professional qualification at the same time as their academic degree. This is a powerful way to set your institution apart and give students the opportunity to gain two qualifications simultaneously. We work with you to create a single syllabus and give your faculty the ACCA tuition support they need – both to set up the programme and to monitor it.

In addition, ACCA has an extensive undergraduate student network and we can help design a marketing engagement campaign to attract international mobile students onto the programme

Students who achieve both a MSc and their Strategic Professional Level papers and, have international experience are highly valued by employers

However you choose to collaborate with us, you can use our globally-recognised designation to promote your programmes – and make the most of our reach and expertise to recruit the brightest students.


Partnering opportunities vary from country to country. Please contact your local office to discuss your options.
