Inquiry about PIPFA
<b></b><i></i><font color="red"></font id="red"><font size="3"></font id="size3"><font face="Comic Sans MS"></font id="Comic Sans MS">Assalam-u-Alaikum!
We all know that PIPFA is not regarded as graduation degree like b.com. Is it just a course like diplomas of engineerings and other courses, we know today. Has PIPFA any importance abroad in case I may ever go there. Is PIPFA a stable institutoin? I actually wanna enroll as a CA student but unfortunately couldn't get required marks in F.Sc. because of a fatal disease. I have heard about PIPFA but I have some fixes about it as I mentioned above.

PIPFA is a joint effort by ICAP, ICMAP and Accountant General of Pakistan. It is now seen more of a certification for Government auditors, who earlier had no institute to govern or certify them. It is a second tier accounting degree (with ICAP, ICMAP being tier one in Pakistan). Having said that PIPFA is a government sponsored insititution and has permenance in its existence. PIPFA is also one of the three Pakistani accounting bodies that is a member of IFAC (International Fedration Of Accountants)

As far as I am aware, PIPFA does not have much recognition outside of Pakistan including Middle East / gulf. Perhaps because it is a new degree.

However, after being an APA (PIPFA Member) you will get certain exemptions in ICAP's Foundation exam, so you may want to consider this option all the same.
