ACCA Accelerate Research Grant Announced for LSBM

12 Mar 2018

The ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is a vibrant and global organisation for professional certified accountants that has 92 offices around the globe, with 633,000 students and members located around the world.

LSBM have long been academic partners with the ACCA and ALL nine ACCA papers are fully accredited for exemptions by completing one of our accounting degrees. 

It is very common to seek out accreditations with leading bodies such as CIMA and ACCA after the completion of your accounting degree, and because LSBM has already done much of the heavy-lifting in gaining exemptions for our students, this means that our students are more quickly and successfully established as accounting professionals.

With this long and successful history of co-operation with the ACCA, we were, therefore, natural partners for this global organisation when they were looking to research the effectiveness of the ACCA Accelerate Scheme for assisting students, and we were happy that they chose to award Usha Mistry the grant to carry out the research.

Course Leader for our Accounting and Financial Management courses, Usha Mistry had this to say about being awarded the research grant:

"This is an exciting development for the Accounting and Finance Department at LSBM. We are always striving to engage our students from multiple angles, including such schemes as the ACCA Accelerate program, which can widen our students knowledge and make them more employable.

This prestigious research grant is both an acknowledgement of the close relationship that we have already built with the ACCA, as well as an opportunity to carry out ground-breaking research that will have positive ramifications for all our accounting students and higher education providers."

LSBM is at the vanguard of academic research activities. This particular research has yet to be carried out by any higher education provider, so the results are likely to be keenly anticipated across the sector.

LSBM pays for all of our Accounting and Financial Management students to become members of the ACCA Accelerate programme for the entire duration of their studies. We are the only higher education provider in London to do so, and this potentially saves our students £916 over providers who do not offer this.
