The college has become an approved national teaching and examination centre for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants in the Czech Republic
Prague College, one of the Czech Republic's leading private English language universities, is delighted to announce that, from February, 2017, it will become the only university in the Czech Republic to be approved as a national teaching and examination centre for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (“ACCA”) in the Czech Republic.
The ACCA is the largest, most prestigious and fastest-growing global body of finance, accounting and management professionals, and this latest extension to the relationship between the ACCA and Prague College is a huge testament to the quality and professionalism of the college’s teaching staff.
The 15-week-long semesters will be starting each February and September, and lessons will be planned to suit even working professionals. All lessons will be taught by qualified lecturers from Prague College, including Bruce Gahir, Associate Head of the Prague College School of Business and a member of the Global Ethics Board of the ACCA. Students that complete the course will come out with a qualification that will be appreciated by employers in the Czech Republic and all over the world.
This is yet another step in the ongoing strong relationship between Prague College and the ACCA. Since last year, Prague College’s BA (Hons) Business Finance and Accounting programme has been accredited by the ACCA which means that students who complete the BA programme at Prague College can benefit from five exemptions from their ACCA examinations.
Talking about this latest news, Bruce Gahir said: “Becoming the teaching and examination centre for the ACCA is a huge step for Prague College, and we are very proud that we have met all of the conditions to make that happen. Over 1,200 students in the Czech Republic are currently studying for their ACCA qualification, many of them from home, but now Prague College will be able to offer those that prefer their studies to be led by qualified lecturers to attend the school and increase their chance for a successful completion of the ACCA exams.”
Detailed information for those interested in studying at Prague College for the ACCA qualification will be introduced at a special ACCA Induction Day on Saturday 21st January at 11 am, in the premises of Prague College.
