OUBS offers fast track training in accounting Back  
The Open University Business School is launching a new Certificate in Accounting and with it a new route into the accounting profession.

The Certificate in Accounting programme is being offered for the first time in September 2001, covering three main themes: financial accounting, management accounting, and management organisations.

It has won the approval of both the Association of Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

The certificate, which is studied over 12 months, is the first such course to be offered on a part-time, distance-learning basis. Accreditation by the two bodies exempts certificate holders from the three ACCA Part One exam papers and the five CIMA Foundation Level exam papers.

Full-time students usually take 12 months to pass these papers and most part-time courses expect students to take two to three years, so the OUBS distance learning option offers a fast track into the accounting profession. OUBS Professor of Accounting, Alan Sangster, says the certificate is an exciting development. ‘The course was developed to fill a perceived gap in the market and we felt it has huge appeal to a range of people, from those with no first degree who are looking for a route into the accounting profession, to people working in other fields whose role requires a fundamental level of accounting skill.’

Meanwhile the Irish Open University Business School is celebrating the success of 39 students who are all about to graduate with an MBA. These are the first Irish based students to graduate from this programme following three years of study.
