    Hello guys, I really want to know the answer. I want to know whether should finish all the ACCA modules before I go working in big 4. Somebody said there is no point to get both of them because big 4 will sponsor their associate in study of ACA, which is more advanced than ACCA.

    The aca isn't more advanced it's just different... But you can convert to aca after acca with one or two exams more to do I believe.

    Why would you do both? Completely pointless. Also, don't self study and fund yourself through these exams... use your firm for that.

    Yes do both, then you'll be twice as qualified and can call yourself an ACCACA!

    Seriously though, waste of time doing two qualifications, they're practically the same thing. Better off waiting until you join a firm on a training contract and letting them pay to put you through whichever qualification they support.
