Bruna, could you tell us a little about your background, and about your decision to begin an online ACCA programme?
I studied accounting at the University of Tirana in Albania, and I graduated in 2005. I worked for KPMG Albania for one year as an assistant for the Tax & Accounting Department, where it was a requirement that employees pursue the ACCA qualification. I now work as a senior associate at Boga & Associates, a top law firm in Albania that offers legal, tax, and accounting services.
What advantages are you hoping your ACCA qualification will give you in your present career, or in the longer term?
In my present career, this qualification will give me greater access to clients. In the longer term, I hope this qualification will give me the opportunity to work for an international company
How would you compare the experience of studying online with more traditional study methods, such as attending a college or university?
Studying with LSBF was perfect for me. The professors gave me the right instructions and the all the guidance I needed. They were precise and helped me learn how to analyse not just exam questions, but real business cases. Next, I want to complete my ACCA certificate and gain recognition for it in Albania. Additionally, I hope this certificate will help me land a job offer from an international company.
