The Diploma in Accounting and Business is awarded on the completion of the following three exams:
1: Financial Accounting (FFA)
2: Management Accounting (FMA)
3: Accountant in Business (FAB)
In addition to the three exams, FFA, FMA & FAB, the course includes a Professionalism and Ethics module called Foundations in Professionalism. This is an online, interactive module designed to help you develop your understanding of what it means to act professionally and ethically in the work you carry out. You can complete Foundations in Professionalism before or after completing your exams and you only need to successfully complete the module once, even if you decide to complete more of our qualifications. There is no set time allocated to completing Foundations in Professionalism. Students are encouraged to complete the module at their own pace to allow you to reflect on what you have learnt.
On completion of the Diploma in Accounting and Business via the Foundations in Accountancy route, you can then transfer to the ACCA Professional Qualification, and, as you will be exempt from Papers F1, F2 & F3, you can continue with the ACCA Qualification from Paper F4 onwards.
