A Landmark Partnership

News Story

ACCA USA and Pace's Lubin School of Business have launched the first ACCA accreditation program at a US-based higher education institution.

ACCA USA (the US arm of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) and Pace announced a landmark partnership linking ACCA’s globally recognized qualification program to both graduate and undergraduate coursework at Pace's Lubin School of Business.

Starting this fall, both graduate and undergraduate students in Lubin’s Department of Accounting will be able to complete coursework that will qualify them for specific exemptions from ACCA’s 14 exams; the exemptions will initially include four for graduate courses and five for undergraduate courses. A student who successfully graduates from Pace’s rigorous program will automatically receive exemptions for those specific exams and be able to use them towards the completion of the ACCA qualification.

“Pace and ACCA USA share common and strong interests in education and the sustainable development of the accounting profession, regionally and internationally,” said Neil Braun, Dean, Lubin School of Business, “in particular concerning the maintenance and promotion of professional, educational and ethical standards, the opportunity for individuals of ability to pursue globally relevant qualifications to enhance their career prospects and ultimately to maintain and develop the profession and the wider economy.”
