What is the value in professional certifications? ACCA, CFA, CIPD, etc.

Only recognize the CFA. Impressive but mostly irrelevant to what we do day in and day out. Pursuing it could be an avoidance mechanism to not do all the other things that do matter

Companies want to hire people with them

Bingo. Certifications & designations are for hiring managers, not clients

CFP among the most important to have.

Fishes,

Does anyone know about the IAAP diploma in IFRS?

IAAP is an awarding body in UK.

My doubt is, does the value of the certificate of IFRS change depending on the Institution?

Will a person who cleared IFRS from IAAP have same value as a person who cleared IFRS from ACCA?

Thanks in advance

Also can you tell me when are the exam windows and how the retakes work?

I moved to the UK due to personal reason and resigned my job as experienced audit assistant at one Big4 firm in my home country. I was offered by a mid-tier public accounting firm with Assistant Manager position. I am a newly qualified ACCA. I prefer to work in financial accounting in corporate. Should I accept the offer? Is it worth to get promoted to audit manager in mid-tier accounting firm before going to industry?

Know this is a long short. But is there anyone in here who came from Africa. Never went to a big University, not from a rich family & eventually broke into Investment Banking in the US,EU or Middle East? I work at a Big 4 (Senior Associate-Audit) in Zambia. Crazy hours, low pay. IB has always been a dream,but even if I saved up, it'd take me more than 6 years to get the money for a top University. Writing CFA L1, but I'm told no one cares about it, same as my BAcc or ACCA. Only a Top MBA Counts.
