Accounting Program Earns International Accreditation from CPA Australia
Monday, May 11, 2020
On May 29, 2020, Ajman University's Accounting Program in the College of Business Administration (CBA) received full accreditation from CPA Australia (Certified Practicing Accountant).
AU is now one of only two UAE-based universities – in addition to four foreign universities with UAE branches – to earn CPA accreditation. Regionally, only one institution in Saudi Arabia and one in Qatar have met the same strict requirements.
“Graduating from a CPA-accredited program indicates a globally respected and benchmarked quality of accountancy knowledge,” said AU Chancellor Karim Seghir. “Students with these credentials are highly regarded by employers around the world for their qualifications.”
AU congratulates the CBA faculty and staff teams on this strategic success. Special thanks go to the colleagues who made CPA accreditation happen:
- Ibrahim Elsiddig Ahmed, Associate Professor, Head of Accounting Dept.
- Riaz Puthiya Nalakam, Adjunct Faculty, Chief Accountant, Office of Finance
CPA Australia is widely recognized as one of the top industry certifications in accounting and is sought after by many practitioners. Founded in 1886, CPA has over 164,695 members working in 150 countries and regions around the world.
