Getting back to studying...

So, it is that time of the year when you have to fork out big sums to ACCA again. The thing is that institutions like BPP & FTC (in UK) charge astronomical charges and get away with it. I mean, think about this. I am sitting three papers this June and I have already paid £1,400 for one standard weekend course (thats three full days), three full four days courses. So in total, thats fifteen classes for £1,400. Considering thats a few months savings gone in an instant really does hurt. I guess, it should give some motivation to pass. I mean, even though I am sick of studing ACCA and as much a motivation as that should be to pass, now I have the financial aspect as well.

Recently, it came to my attention that ACCA have introduced another qualification after completing ACCA, MBA. I mean, why would I want to do MBA AFTER completing my ACCA. Why not just go with MBA after qualifying with a degree if I really want to get an MBA qualification. One certainly gets the impression that ACCA themself think that MBA is superior to ACCA.

I just think I donot have the strength to go on to MBA after completing my ACCA.

Oh, well, what do I know. I may end up going for it once I have completed ACCA. Best just leave these decisions to when the time actually comes :D

Keep at it Kayote!

These organisations are all rip-off merchants I feel (my own experience)... but you will benefit yourself by having that ACCA under your belt.

Chin up Professor.
