It is important that students interested in the field of finance and accounting or who dream of pursuing a career as a Chartered Accountant (CA), acquire a professionally accredited qualification.
Regent Business School offers a SAICA-accredited Post Graduate Diploma in Accounting (PGDA) that will equip one with the essential skills and knowledge needed to gain senior finance positions.
The PGDA is a one-year course that integrates the study of theory and the practical application of financial accounting, auditing, taxation, and managerial accounting and finance which prepares students for the Initial Test of Competence (ITC) or the Board 1 examination set by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA).
The integration of the big four modules enables the student to apply a dynamic and practical approach to solving real world problems. Students learn skills and knowledge necessary to further develop themselves as business leaders or entrepreneurs.
After the completion of the course, students are adequately prepared for a career as a Chartered Accountant. The CA career choice is in high demand and is financially rewarding.
A PGDA needs to be accredited by SAICA to ensure that the required professional standards are met to access the ITC exams. Students are advised to choose a PGDA course that is SAICA-accredited if they want access to the ITC exams to pursue a career as a Chartered Accountant.
