    Hello there,

    Will a degree Economics go well with a chartered accountancy qualification? (ACCA, CIMA...)

    If so, which should come first? I'm looking at universities in the UK. Thanks!

    A lot of people complete Economics degrees and then join an accounting firm to complete their Accounting qualifications and become a qualified chartered accountant. If you are really sure you want to become an accountant, then it might be a good idea to do an accounting and finance degree as this might get you some exemptions from the professional exams.
