Bachelor of Accountancy


Bachelor of Accountancy

The degree of Bachelor of Accountancy (also known as Bachelor of Accounting) is the principal academic degree in accountancy. It is abbreviated B.Acy. or B.Acc. or B. Accty It is not to be confused with a B.B.A. in Accounting and B.Com. in Accounting, which are general business administration and commerce degrees with accounting as an area of concentration. The Bachelor of Accountancy is a specialized degree on its own.

Due to the extremely specialized nature of the B.Acy., it is a professional degree course that not many universities actually offer. In the United States, it is likely to be a four-year undergraduate degree. In other parts of the world, such as Singapore, it can be a three-year undergraduate degree course as well. In Malta, it is a two year course which can be taken after qualifying in Bachelor of Commerce only for students who show exception grades in their Bachelor of Commerce course.

After completion of the Bachelor of Accountancy, a student can generally go on to work as an accountant and or pursue a Master of Accountancy.
