hmm the thing is that cima is also tougher than acca. what will u earn doesnt depend on wheteher u do acca or cima. whatever u do among the 2 , it will b ur professional class that will earn 4 u . do acca if u lack gud financial support, else do cima. but remember jitna gurh daalo gey utna mheeta ho ga

CIMA is more industry focused than ACCA.
As a CIMA studier you should look beyond the financial aspects of the business, looking to develope your role into a more management position, focusing on what makes the business a success but not in just financial terms. Success is not just good financial control (think of the balanced score card approach). You should look to have an input and develope an understanding of all the areas of the companies activities.
Add to that at CIMA we don't cover in depth tax and avoid audit.
Pay scales are similar upto a point but with CIMA there is no real higher level in finance to aim, you should look beyond the fiance department for career goals.
Hope this helps.

Be patient, ur earning depends on many things . u cant distinguish b/w the 2 by pay scale bcoz they r almost parallel. do cima if u want 2 work in a manufacturing co. do acca if u wanna do work in bank and esp in middle east. got it? i will advise u 2 do CA if u r too serious abt ur earning. it has the greatest exposure so the highest earning. moreover if u will work outside pak den the earning is atleast 3 times

Having more than one qualification is always better provided they are relevant to each other. It will develop your knowledge more and develop your professional career
