ACCA Exemption Accreditation

ACCA Exemption Accreditation

IES FSV UK has extended its cooperation with the international professional association ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) and successfully received accreditation for the selected study programs.

ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is an international, globally recognized professional organization in finance and accounting with more than 233,000 members and 536,000 students in 179 countries.

IES FSV UK belongs to the top Czech institutions that have successfully obtained ACCA accreditation and opened the door to their students for further opportunities and professional development.

Currently, students from the following accredited study programs can take advantage of the ACCA exam recognition:

Bachelor’s program “Ekonomie a finance” (taught in Czech)
BA in Economics and Finance (BEF)
Master’s program “Ekonomie a finance” (taught in Czech)
MA in Economics and Finance (MEF)
Master in Finance and Data Analytics

Graduates of these programs are awarded exemptions from the following ACCA exams:

  • BT-Business and Technology
  • MA-Management Accounting
  • FA-Financial Accounting
  • FM-Financial Management 

The ACCA exam FM-Financial Management is awarded on the basis of successful completion of the university courses Corporate Finance (JEM034) and Financial Markets (JEM037).

Accreditation is valid for graduates from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2026.

The aim of the accreditation is to facilitate students’ access to the internationally recognized qualification of professional accountants, ACCA. As part of the accreditation process, the syllabi of individual courses of the relevant study programs are thoroughly assessed, as well as the examination format. The accreditation process is very time-consuming, and meeting the ACCA requirements takes a lot of effort.
