Interview with administration of the college.
CA and ACCA, both qualifications are highly regarded and can lead to successful careers in accounting and finance.
CA (Chartered Accountancy) is a local qualification in Pakistan offered by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan (ICAP). CA holds a strong reputation within the local market and is particularly beneficial for those aiming to establish a career in Pakistan.
On the other hand, ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is an internationally recognized qualification that equips professionals with a global perspective on accounting and finance. ACCA offers greater flexibility and mobility, allowing individuals to work across borders and pursue opportunities worldwide.
Ultimately, the decision between CA and ACCA should be based on your long-term career goals and whether you prioritize a local or international focus.
