Accounting course dilemma

Hi all,

I would like to seek for your opinions please.

A friend of mine recommended to complete the degree or certificate asap would be the best.

In terms of value, which is better or recommended? I am mid 20s.

Experience?
NUS/SMU/NTU?
SIT?
Acca?
SUSS?
SIM-UOL/SIM-RMIT?
Kaplan (Murdoch degree in accounting and finance?) 1-2 years?

Which is better? I am in my first sem for suss and was puzzled by this. I intend to take up CPA / SQP eventually.

CPA preferred due to its time and flexibilitiy and commitment required. However as FRS are changing in 2018, I am rather concerned.

Since you're in your first semester already, why not just finish the degree?

Doesn't matter if you are from NUS/NTU/SMU/SIT/SUSS... end up all must take SQP. (Now known as the Singapore CA Qualification).

See: http://www.singaporecaqualification..../who-qualifies

Also note that currently, new students of ACCA & CPA Australia cannot convert to CA Singapore.

Complete your degree at SUSS, ignore the offer at Kaplan. Take up SQP instead of CPA unless you intend to work overseas.
