I’ve been offered two internships, both at big 4 firms, one going the CIMA route, one going ACA route. In terms of long term career growth/progression, which qualification do you all think is better and why - what specifically about that qualification makes it a better choice above the other? Considering both positions are at big 4 firms I don’t think the name of the firm should matter, so I wasn’t going to take that into account.


Definitely recommend ACA, as it’s the most prestigious and will give you many opportunities in the future.

You can’t Audit with CIMA
