Career progression and options

Graduates of Accounting may progress onto completing professional accreditations of ACCA/ACA/CIMA and undertake practical work experience to become a qualified accountant. This would usually take an additional 2-3 years after graduation.


ACCA 

Although it is possible to become a chartered qualified accountant without a degree, the industry is incredibly competitive and graduates are likelier to have an advantage. To complete an ACCA to become a chartered certified accountant, you will need to complete:

• exams - a minimum of five of 14 exams (nine are eligible for exemption*)

• experience - record 36 months' experience in a relevant role

• ethics - the Professional Ethics module.


Graduates may also wish to gain chartered management accountant status after graduation if their university has Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) professional exam exemption.

If graduates wish to work in accounting within public services, then membership with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) may also be an option for them.


Potential employers:

Graduates from Accounting are highly sought by employers. Graduates may be employed by the following firms -

Accountancy: Deloitte, PwC, KPMG, Ernst and Young

Finance and banking: Alliance and Leicester, American Express, Citi, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch

Fun facts about Accounting

• Accountants aren't all about crunching numbers all day. Do you know that every year, before the Oscars are handed out to award winners, a team of Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) spend 1700 hours counting the Academy Award ballots by hand.

• The FBI employs 2000 accounting special agents to handle white collar crime reviews. In fact, it was the accounting agents in the FBI that brought down the Chicago gangster Al Capone, due to his income tax evasion.
