ACCA: Demand for accountants growing

Report from global institute shows member numbers increasing

Membership numbers at ACCA continue to increase despite the global economic
crisis according to the institute’s annual member results.

The ACCA report showed global membership grew 6.5% over the last 15 months
from 131,500 to 140,000.

The institute also saw the number of students that signed up increase 10.4%
to 404,000.

“This healthy growth comes during an economically challenging time, but it
shows that the finance profession is an attractive global career. Accountants’
skills are more important than ever, to restore confidence in the global
economy, to help businesses large and small to identify and manage costs and
deliver sustainable growth,” said Helen Brand, chief executive of ACCA.

ACCA also announced that it has changed its year end from December to March.
