Why we launched Accelerate

Higher education is changing

The higher education landscape has been changing for some time. As the number of institutions worldwide grows, competition for the best students becomes fiercer.

You need to boost your employability scores, climb the rankings and enhance your reputation. To do this, you need to get the smartest students on board.

We're in this together

We are the world's most forward thinking accountancy body. We set the highest standards and quality. We create the best careers. We build a better world. And we actively shape the future of the accountancy profession.

To keep doing all of these things, we need the brightest and best students to become tomorrow’s ACCA members.

So we created Accelerate - a programme where we enter into relationships with universities. We need your help to put finance and accountancy students on the fast track to ACCA membership.

In today’s highly competitive business environment, your students get the opportunity to stand out by gaining a professional qualification alongside an academic one. And you make your courses even more attractive to capable, talented students worldwide - so your league table position improves and your institution thrives.
