Etisalat students ‘rank amongst best’
Dubai, June 25, 2009
Etisalat Academy, a training centre of the telecom services provider Etisalat, said that students studying for the association of certified chartered accountants (ACCA) exam have consistently outperformed the global average.
“The teaching staff and students at Etisalat Academy should be rightly proud of their achievements in the most recent ACCA examinations,” said Deepak Chainani country manager, UAE & Qatar, ACCA Middle East.
“Our exams are deliberately tough and require a great deal of effort and ability in order to succeed. We congratulate the academy on these results and look forward to students’ achievements in ACCA’s current examinations,” he added.
Gordon Pinto, a financial analyst and a recent graduate of the Etisalat Academy’s ACCA programme, said: “Two years ago I was thinking of attaining an accounting qualification and eventually decided that the ACCA would be the most appropriate. To achieve this I needed assistance from a professional teaching establishment and eventually turned to Etisalat Academy.”
“My one year with the academy has proven to be both a rewarding and fulfilling experience and most importantly I enjoyed the full benefits of backup and support from their tutors. To sum it up, the learning process was both friendly and instructive,” Pinto added.
The Etisalat Academy’s ACCA programme is open to all people who meet the minimum requirements which are A-levels, IB or a 65 per cent score in CBSE, ICS or equivalent.
A bachelor of science (BSc Hons) degree in applied accounting from Oxford Brookes University is awarded on completion of the fundamentals stage and on passing a research and analysis project.
David Brennan, Etisalat Academy’s general manager said: “We are lucky to have such dedicated in-house ACCA Training Consultants who are prepared to go the extra mile. People don’t realize that the Etisalat Academy offers training beyond telecommunications, we also deliver world standard results in business training.”
The Etisalat Academy is an accredited ACCA tuition provider and an ACCA approved computer based exam centre. – TradeArabia News Service
