ACCA chief hits back at Sikka comment
ACCA chief executive Anthea Rose has hit back at Professor Prem Sikka of Essex University after he posted comments on AccountancyAge.com regarding the association's membership.
Prof Sikka, the association’s most prominent critic, sent an email to AccountancyAge.com criticising ACCA’s failure to expand in the UK.
But in a letter to Accountancy Age, Rose disputed Professor Sikka’s maths, pointing out the figures he quoted amounted to a 10,000 new UK members in the last three years.
Professor Sikka’s original email referred to a story about the Office of Fair Trading’s report into the professions.
