ACCA embraces ethics exams

Institute releases details of new qualification, which will incorporate an ethics exam and other ethical components

ACCA’s new qualification will incorporate new ‘ethics’ exams, the institute
has said.

The qualification, to be examined for the first time in December 2007, will
incorporate an exam on ethics, tailored practical experience and an online
module presenting students with real-life ethical dilemmas.

‘For the first time, ACCA will be adopting a three-pronged focus on ethics,’
the Institute said, outlining the three modules.

Clare Minchington, managing director of education, training and development
at ACCA, said: ‘After the accounting scandals of recent years, it’s vital for
the accountants and financial professionals of tomorrow to be equipped to
operate in an industry subject to such close scrutiny.

‘Our new qualification prepares the way for the professional accountant and I
am especially delighted with the online ethics module because it’s the first of
its kind.’
