The Department of Management Studies and Commerce, PES University entered into an MoU with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), UK on March 10,2022 for enhancing skills amongst students.
ACCA was founded in 1904, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants is the global professional accounting body offering the Chartered Certified Accountant qualification. It has 2,33,000 members and 536,000 future members worldwide. Integrating any professional programme with the undergraduate syllabus is valuable for the institution and the students however, on account of severe paucity and support from the Indian professional bodies, the ACCA qualification emerges as a bright star over the horizon for young aspirants.
Dr. M R Doreswamy Hon’ble Chancellor,PES University congratulated the Department on the partnership with ACCA which allows students to have easy access to a global professional accounting body. He expressed confidence on the initiative taken by PES University to fully integrate ACCA curriculum with B. Com (Hons) resulting in huge benefits to students during their stay in the University and felt that the programme will be fruitful for delivering professional education to students. ACCA has been a stepping stone to many, and this collaboration will strengthen the outreach of the University and appears promising to expand International Collaborations in the near future.
Dr. K. S. Sridhar Registrar, Dr. Shailashree Haridas Dean, Department of Management Studies, from PES University and officials from ACCA UK along with Faculty team of Department of Management & Commerce and learning partner ISDC were present on the occasion.
