ACCA or CIMA

Dexter BurtDexter Burt Just JoinedPosts: 1Registered
I am in my final year of AAT and im undecided what path to take next. The accountants at my company are CIMA qualified/ studying CIMA but i have been given the option to pursue whichever qualification appeals to me the most. I do prefer the financial side of accountancy opposed to the budgeting and forcasting but it would be good to hear some feed back from others in the same position or who would be able to help with regards to this desicion.

Many thanks in advance.

    Hello Dexter,

    I am looking to be finished by the end of this year and have the exact same decision to make. I have decided to go for ACCA. My reasoning is that upon completion of the Skills modules you can claim a BA (Hons) in Applied Accounting. I plan to use that BA to register for the CFA program. It's entirely dependent on exactly where you want to go. I hear that ACCA is generally more useful for practice and CIMA is more corporate.
