New Delhi, India (PressExposure) August 29, 2013 -- Recognised and valued in 180 countries, with 8500 employer partners globally; certified courses from ACCA(Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) will soon be available for Apeejay students in India.
The Apeejay Education Society (AES) & Apeejay Stya University signed a MOU in this regard with ACCA Global at New Delhi.
Ninety eight percent of Forbes 2000 companies are approved employer partners with ACCA, which increases the chances of the Apeejay students with ACCA certification to get employment in global MNC's.
Mrs. Sushma Berlia, President, Apeejay Education Society & Chancellor, Apeejay Stya University said: "We believe that this qualification is very essential and important for any student to have, which will enable them to move in a much better way in the employment market and also help them in enhancing their entrepreneurial abilities".
"Apeejay and ACCA are planning programs for students, both at the school level and higher education courses. We have already outlined a few models that should be rolled out soon" she added.
Ilam Punjani, Business Relationship Manager of ACCA India said "With increasing norms of employer spending to train on foreign professional qualifications, an employer would prefer someone who is already qualified and has international flexibility to move within any subsidiary of that company around the world. Our students in their jobs can perform equally well, not only in finance and accountancy but also in business, management, taxation and treasury".
According to Mr. Aziz Tayyebi, Head of International Development, ACCA, this is for the first time that ACCA has signed a MOU in India with an education society like Apeejay. He said "the course would be beneficial for the students of Apeejay as they would now have an option of pursuing two degrees simultaneously and have an added advantage over others as it would enhance their employability rate".
