What does that mean? – All students who will graduate from the Department of Accounting and Auditing at the Faculty of Economics – Skopje receive exemptions of certain ACCA papers during their studies. This values students’ knowledge of what they have achieved during their studies, and also saves time and money to achieve their goal – ACCA membership. Accreditation benefits can also be used by students from other study programs. When applying for the title of Certified Public Accountant under the ACCA program, the exemptions of certain ACCA papers will be received if they have passed the accredited course during the studies.
But here do not stop the efforts of the Department of Accounting and Auditing at the Faculty of Economics – Skopje to meet its goal, which is as soon as possible the number of accredited courses by ACCA to increase and reach the maximum number of ACCA papers exemption.
