ACCA gives accreditation to Prague College’s business finance and accounting programme

Prague College, one of the Czech Republic's leading private universities, is delighted to announce that its BA (Hons) Business Finance and Accounting programme is now accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). This means that students who complete the BA programme at Prague College can benefit from five exemptions from ACCA qualifications, which are valued by employers in the Czech Republic and all over the world.

The exempted examinations are Accountancy in Business, Management Accounting, Financial Accounting, Corporate & Business Law and Financial Reporting. The relationship between Prague College and the ACCA is about far more than exemptions, however, since they have collaborated before; in April a highly successful workshop on Business Ethics took place at the college in cooperation with the ACCA and the Liechtenstein-based construction company Hilti.

Talking about this new accreditation, Bruce Gahir, Associate Head of the School of Business at Prague College, said: 'Prague College students will now be able to progress on a specially created 'fast-track' route with the ACCA at the same time as they are studying for their BA in Business Finance and Accounting. This will them offer unique opportunities for first-time employment.'

Katka Benesova, Head of ACCA Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary, will present the accreditation certificate to Douglas Hajek, director of Prague College, in a special ceremony to be held at the college on Wednesday, 18th May, 2016

In addition to the standard three-year BA (Hons) in Business Finance and Accounting, Prague College has also developed recently a 'flexi' course that caters for the demands of full-time working people. This programme has been created especially for professionals with a flexible approach, for example those that are already in employment, and the whole programme can be completed in 3.5 years.
