I Know I have at least 2 more years to consider my progressive future path with my current qualifications I am studying. But I am wondering which is the best qualification to further my career in accountancy, ACA, ACCA, CIMA or Other and why you would recommend it over the others?

    Depends on your future goals.

    ACA is primarily for practice
    CIMA is primarily for industry
    ACCA is a hybrid of the 2.

    If you intend to practice in the public sector, CIPFA may also be a reasonable choice.

    This helped break it down for me. I'm leaning towards management accounting ie Budgeting and forward planning; as I am enjoying this side more at the moment.
