Ajman-UAE: 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.”
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.
In 2019, AU Accounting Program was accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). A global professional body issuing highly respected and valued international qualifications in business, the ACCA is recognized by member states of the European Union and the United Nations.
Ajman University is globally accredited by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), the UK’s independent body and a global leader in quality assurance for higher education.
While all are accredited by the UAE’s Commission for Academic Accreditation, many of our programs are accredited internationally by renowned international agenciesas ABET, ACPE, UIA-UNESCO, ACCA and CPA.
