My Decision!!

My Decision!!
Salam,

Sorry people I have not been able to participate in the forum lately as I was preety busy in my Tennis Tournaments & mocks ofcourse!

Anyways,I just need your opinions on my future plan.[)]

After my A levels I have decided to go for BSC in Accounting & Finance from London School of Economics through it's external system available in pakistan.It would take me 3 years to complete this degree & then hopefully I will be moving to uk for my ACA from ICAEW which would take further 4 years,meaning that GOD willingly I would be a member of ICAEW in 7 years or so! [8D]

I know this route will take longer as compared to some other alternatives but I believe that spending a year more at this time to get one of the best degrees under my belt will be worth it & would prove to be a wise decision in the long run!

The closest that came was ACCA but I have decided that now for me it's just an opportunity cost.[D] ACCA-ACA route will also take around 6 years so then there is only a year difference!

Lastly,I would say that your views will be appreciated & productive criticism are Welcome!

Regards.

If you have done A level then i would prefer you to join direct ICAEW or do such course for which in ICAEW you get some exemptions.

Salam,

Well, I must say that response rate was disappointing.[V]

@MuneerAhmed

Yes I will be getting 6 paper exemptions depending upon the units that I would be opting during my BSC course.[)]

I appreciate your plan because in my opinion academic qualification has its own importance and it will help you to a great extent to establish a strong career based on both academic and professional qualifications. London School of Economics is the most prestigious institute of the world the degree of B.Sc (Accounting & Finance) from LSE will definitely add value in your career. Beside it ACA from ICAEW is one of the highest qualification/certification in the world in the field of accountancy.

A combination of B.SC (Accounting & Finance) and ACA (ICAEW) is an excellent combination.
This is my observation that the most well known personalities of the world who have a lot of literally and professional work at their credit have both professional and academic qualifications, for instance Dr. Khawaja Amjad Saeed, Adolph Matz and Donald E. Kieso

I lived in Islamabad around 3 years back from what I remember UCI (University College of Islamabad) had a poor reputation, it was known for other shenanigans not for its studies. Take your pick from the other two.

Salam,

Thanks a LOT for such a hepful advice,I appreciate it! [)]

I do get your point BUT I decided to go ahead with this option as my plan for ACA(ICAEW) is confirmed & so is the plan for the uk.

Even if due to some unfortunate events I am not able to go to uk then too I have a backup plan i.e ACA from Middle East. [D]

"Undoubtedly, this external program has no standing afore IBA, LUMS, SZABIST etc."

I doubt if this statement of yours stand true in UK context.
