    Hey guys!
    I wanted to ask that which is a better option: ACCA or Bachelors of Accounting and Finance. Also is there a major difference between the two?

    ACCA is a certification, BSc Accounting and Finance is an academic degree. Remember if you apply for jobs in developed countries they care about certifications only if you have a basic bachelors degree first.

    2: A Professional Qualification enabling members to reach the highest level in accountancy - (ACCA)
    3: A Bachelor of Science in Applied Accounting which is centered on the needs of employers for practical, professional accounting - BSc (Hons)
    4: A Masters in Business Administration designed to broaden business understanding and enhance strategic decision making - (MBA)"


    what do you make of that?

    If you want to stay in Pakistan then it's ok if you are heading to USA/Canada then it's not ok. The mulit-millionaire firms only recognize the standard path used by top universities in their own countries.
