Your first option, i.e 'ACCA or MBA in Finance'... You should certainly go for MBA in Finance from a well reputed university, such as IBA or LUMS... At the moment, ACCA itself alone would not fetch you great bucks... Although, you might have greater knowledge in finance related matters than an MBA if you do ACCA, but then again, there's always a difference... Lets see what difference the introduction of Pakistan Tax variant has on ACCA's market in Pakistan...

Your second option, 'CA or ACCA'... Certainly and obviously CA... In fact, why not go for BOTH of them?... ACCA is internationally recognized and would give you greater exemptions for ICAEW if you happen to plan for it in the future...

Your third option, 'MBA from HEC recognized univ plus ACCA'... Doing MBA from an HEC recognized university itself should not be the baseline, it should be from either LUMS or IBA, as this is what the job adverts say these days... MBA and ACCA sounds good, but a better combination could be MBA+CIMA!!

If you've already done BBA honors it would be better if you pursue CIMA or MBA... CA would take you a lot of time... The reason why I'm advising you for CIMA, is because its more 'management oriented' rather than 'audit'... Hence, makes a good combination with MBA...

And yes its correct that some graduates from LUMS and IBA have not been able to get very good jobs... Actually there are exceptions to everything, and above all, realistically speaking, a person's own efforts, interpersonal skills, etc etc count A LOT... tell you something, i have a friend who has only completed his A levels and studying in ACCA part II has got a job in CITIBANK without any source !!... And my other friends who are in Hamdard doing BBA are trying their level best and can't even get interns in Citibank...

Well this might be an exceptional example again, but if others can be an exception, I'm sure you can make it to the top with your own efforts as well!
