The MBA program at University Canada West (UCW) is designed for ACCA students, affiliates and members who want to top up their accounting and finance knowledge with a world-class business degree.
We offer you the opportunity to complete your remaining ACCA exams alongside your UCW MBA degree so you can enter the workplace with these two internationally recognized qualifications.
There are three MBA-ACCA pathways available:
- ACCA Student Pathway
- ACCA Affiliate/Member Pathway
- Special ACCA-Graduate Pathway
1. ACCA Student Pathway
ACCA students who have completed an ACCA-accredited undergraduate degree can directly enter the UCW MBA program. Our MBA program allows students to continue their ACCA journey by taking the following ACCA exams independently:
- Strategic Business Leader (SBL)
- Advanced Financial Management (AFM)
MBA students who pass these ACCA exams will not be required to complete the UCW internal assessment. If students are unsuccessful in their ACCA exams or no longer want to continue their ACCA qualification, they will have the option to continue their MBA by taking UCW internal assessments.
ACCA students who have completed any of the above exams will receive credit transfers to the UCW MBA program.
2. ACCA Affiliate/Member Pathway
ACCA affiliates/members who have completed the entire ACCA qualification may also get direct entry to the UCW MBA program. This pathway is also available to ACCA candidates who have completed an ACCA-accredited undergraduate degree.
ACCA affiliates/members may apply for credit transfers against their Strategic Professional/Professional Stage exams based on the exams completed. Credit transfers are available on a case-by-case basis.
3. Special ACCA-Graduate Pathway
Students holding any undergraduate degree topped-up with nine ACCA exams can continue their ACCA journey with the UCW MBA-ACCA Student Pathway.
