Bsc sounds better from a casual run down, primarily because you have Inferential Statistics and subjects on Investments and business research. Statistics and Mathematics plays an impotant part in the Final part with subjects like Decision making etc.

By the way, what Uni is that ?

no you can also earn the Bsc(Hons) degree in applied accounting in ACCA.when some one complete the ACCA Part-2,he earned the Bsc(Hons)in applied accounting.

<br />Yes she is right . Bccom is a graduation degree but ACCA , CIMA,CA , CPA,CFA etc. are all professional certificates for but If u want to spend your 2 yrs in bcom or Bsc I would advice you to spend it in something which is better .ACCA is International qualification it is accepted in most countries throughout the world while bcom walon ko kuch bhi nahi aata sirf naam hai kay aap graduate hein.

Now to solve this problem i would suggest you to start sth like ACCA or CIMa and in the sideline keep doing Bcom aswell but keep your total concentration on ACCA etc.

ACCA gets you a Bsc. degree from a British Uni,.. how bad is that.. and like some one's said, if you are so much for a B.comm (which I dont see the reason why !)just sit for the exams, because having gone through ACCA passing B.com exams wont be that much of a problem.

She is right but by doing ACCA you can get Bsc as well as MBA. On the other hand by doing b.com you will not get any exemption in professional education.

ACCA is certification but dont forget it is equal to bsc (hon) and have more value in respect of recognition, pay and job market. If you want to do degree then ACCA is best because you can get one bachelor and one master degree. Let me explain it in other way

ACCA....after part two do one search and analysis project and get bsc in applied account from oxford brooks university

ACCA...in core paper join the special study programme (LCA or LCAM) and get MBA finance

i would advise you to do BSC (Hons) accounting and finance instead of B.com because this degree is given higher preference when you do for fining a job. Hons degree always have more value and another benefit will be that you can directly go for M.phil or MS after doing hons degree whereas after doing B.com you will first have to take admission in MBA and after that you can go for your MS
