PIPFA qualified are "made" to work as middle level managers. One may get job in Pakistan but there would be very few chances to get to the senior/executive level. It could be better used as a stepping stone for other accounting qualifications e.g. CA gives Module A&B exempted on PIPFA.....

PIPFA qualified (APA/FPA) are more welcomed in the government/public sector rather than the private sector. But, APA/FPA are also getting good salary packages in the private companies.

The best short cut is to first to do CA Intermediate (ICAP) & then get exemptions of 11 papers (approx) excluding "Advanced Financial Accounting" & "Cost & Management Accounting" of PIPFA.
4 papers of PIPFA-Foundation;
5 papers of PIPFA-Intermediate &
2 papers of PIPFA-Final Examinations.
