The Business Accounting (in English) master program is offered by the Faculty of Accounting and Management Information Systems of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Romania. The program offers training ensuring examination for the ACCA qualification. Upon completion, graduates receive the MSc diploma of the ASE, and 9 exemptions (the maximum offered) from the ACCA's curriculum. The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the largest global organization of accountants, with more than 260,000 students and 110,000 members in 170 countries. It has 75 offices worldwide. The ACCA, via its programs, offers high quality education in accordance with the standards of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).
Classes are only held during weekends (4 full days of training for each course, on Saturdays and Sundays), and the exam is scheduled within 2 weeks after the completion of each course. The curriculum is organized in 4 semesters (2 years), and comprises the 12 mandatory courses from the ACCA's curriculum (4 each of the first 3 semesters), and 2 of 4 elective courses (during the last semester) (students elect these based on their interests, from the ACCA's 4 elective courses in their curriculum).
The extremely reasonable cost of 1,500 EUR per year applicable to Romanian students includes all training materials required, as well as the training. Materials are published by publishers accredited by the ACCA. Quality training is done by experienced trainers and academics. Foreign students of ASE are subject to different tuition rates and need to clear official paperwork with ASE before they can be registered for classes. Registration with ASE is therefore required as early as possible (over the summer), as course materials are ordered before the beginning of the academic year on 1 October every year.
