Accounting is the universal language used in all business practices, and accountancy has been regarded as a professional and stable career, building business leaders that help shape economies. If you are interested in pursuing a qualification which allows you to join the financial or business world or to be a professional accountant, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) would be your ideal pathway.

Founded in 1904, ACCA holds a track record of experience, innovation and excellence in providing globally-recognised accounting and finance qualifications, complemented by modern thinking and backed by diverse and global memberships. ACCA is the world’s leading body for professional accountants with 208,000 members and 503,000 students in 179 countries worldwide. ACCA also works with over 7,400 Approved Employers and over 80 accountancy partnerships around the world

Professional Accountancy Centre (PAC) at KDU College, which was set up in 2008, offers Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) and ACCA courses.  Within a year, it was granted a Gold status, and currently the programme is towards the seventh year of being awarded Platinum status Approved Learning Partner by ACCA.

CAT qualification is designed to provide students with fundamental knowledge and technical skills to fulfil an accounting role at the technician level. It provides you with a fast track pathway towards becoming a qualified accountant and globally recognised by ACCA.

KDU PAC has managed to steer their students to brilliant results and becoming CAT World Prize Winner, which is an award given to the students who achieve top marks in the world. “I tell myself that what others can achieve, I can achieve too! Never tell myself it is impossible. Never try never know,” said Tan Yue Jian, CAT MA1 World Prize Winner. Most of the students who undergo the programme are able to complete their CAT within a year and pursue with the ACCA programme for two years.

Another success story besides the World Prize Winner, recently, a team which consists of Nicholas Koon, Lee Vinxi, Lim Shaun Ming and Lim Yuen Ting (KDU-ACCA 2nd year and final year students) achieved becoming the 1st runner up at the 18th N-IVAQ 2019 organised by MMU Melaka on 20th April 2019.

Moving forward with the recent changes to the ACCA qualification, KDU’s ACCA Programme prepare and facilitate students to acquire the full range of competencies financial professionals need, with an emphasis on technical knowledge, cognitive capabilities and soft skills.

Students are not just limited to classroom lessons, but complemented with firm visits, guest lectures by industry leaders as well as additional programmes to aid students in the best way possible to excel in their examination. Our specially designed Employability Enhancement Programmes (EEP) which comprise communication skills enrichment, business simulation programmes, and audit software simulation programmes will allow students to equip themselves with prerequisite skills indispensable to ace their Professional Level studies while also enhancing their employability. In addition, there are also opportunities for students to attend FREE accounting software training.

“With ACCA programme’s nature of being exam oriented, we are adamant that it is equally important to be competent in soft skills and ace the examinations. With the EEP, KDU’s ACCA graduates will not only have a strong suit of technical knowledge but also excellent teamwork, communication and problem solving skills making them top-notch candidates to excel and succeed in their career,” said Chan Tze Kang, KDU’s PAC Academic Department Head.

PAC students are encouraged to join the PAC Club to learn more about leaderships, planning, facilitating and managing events or activities. This helps to not only build rapport and camaraderie among the students, but also equip them with skills to be better prepared to join the workforce.

KDU was being awarded of ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Partner on 24/4/2013

KDU partners with ACCA for new course

PETALING JAYA: Aspiring accountants can soon obtain their Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) accreditation while studying for their degree at the same time – through a partnership between the group and KDU University College.

Both parties inked a memorandum of understanding here yesterday, paving the way for a new three-year programme at KDU in which students can take up conditional exemption papers for the ACCA qualification in the final year of their Bachelor of Accounting degree studies.

ACCA chief executive Helen Brand said the programme was the first of its kind in Malaysia.

“The unique aspect of it is the embedding of the ACCA syllabus into the degree programme. This will allow students to finish with a degree and ACCA qualification well ahead of others,” said Brand.

The award, Brand said, was the highest level of approval for global higher education institutes under ACCA’s ALP programme and had only been given to five other universities in Malaysia.

“To be considered for the platinum level, they must meet targets relating to the way the institution is run and how the ACCA courses are delivered,” said Prof Khong.

“A platinum-approved ALP must also consistently meet ACCA’s pass rate target.”
