A global professional body issuing highly respected and valued international qualifications in business, the ACCA is recognized by member states of the European Union and the United Nations.

Only 13 institutions in the Arab Region have been accredited by the ACCA; and, AU is the third university in the UAE to earn this prestigious qualification. Graduating from an accredited program means that AU's accounting alumni are eligible for exemptions when taking the professional examinations required for ACCA certification.

Effective immediately and through December 2023, AU's accounting graduates are exempted from taking 6 exams out of a possible 9. AU is now listed on the ACCA website's "exemptions calculator" to inform students of the exemptions for which they qualify.
