Vanessa Tanco, President and CEO of iACADEMY, and Edward Ling, Portfolio Head of ACCA Maritime Southeast Asia formally signed the deal between the two groups last July 2. ACCA is the global professional accounting body offering chartered certified accountant qualifications.
“Through this collaboration, iACADEMY students now have the opportunity to take ACCA Certification Exams which will pave the way for global opportunities in the field of accounting and finance,” Tanco said.
Partnership benefits include curriculum integration, up-to-date learning resources, and access to employment opportunities from thousands of employers across 179 countries in the world.
iACADEMY professors will also be provided with various training to support the students in preparing for the certification and ensure they are supplied with relevant information and skills to succeed in the industry.
“With this partnership, we hope to support the country’s ambition to develop and support this pool of professional workforce by making world-class and globally recognized qualifications such as ACCA easily accessible to students inside and outside Metro Manila and elsewhere in the Philippines”, Ling said.
The ACCA said accounting is the global language of business and being fluent in it can take you anywhere and with the emergence of new technologies, most corporations require the expertise of an accountant.
“Now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the time and develop highly portable skills in the field of finance and accounting,” encourages Alex Cabrera, Chairman Emeritus of PwC, also a partner of iACADEMY.
iACADEMY offers BS Accountancy and BS Business Administration with Specialization in Marketing Management under the School of Business and Liberal Arts.
Founded in 2002, iACADEMY has pioneered specialized programs that are technology-focused, innovative, and industry-relevant.
