IIA or ACCA?

BDO
ACCA
#1

Hi all,

I have applied to work in internal audit in BDO, who offer both ACCA or IIA (institute of internal auditors). After a chat in my first interview there doesn’t seem to be a preference from the firm to which you study and so it seems more of a personal choice. Does anyone have any ideas as to which may be better. Both have pros and cons as with anything else but if anyone has any personal experience I would greatly appreciate your input.

I would say ACCA is probably better as it gives you a lot more options than IIA which is very Internal Audit focused whereas ACCA focuses on other accounting and business subjects
