On Tuesday, 25th January 2022, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) UK, represented by the country liaison officer, Mr Charles Awhewhejiri paid a courtesy visit to the Management of Landmark University in anticipation of an improved partnership between the organisations. 

While receiving him, the acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Charity Aremu emphasized the importance of the visit in updating ACCA’s partnership with the institution. Professor Aremu who noted the impacts of the existing MoU between ACCA and Landmark University maintained that the MoU can be improved upon to further build capacity for the Faculty, Staff and Students. According to her, to remain relevant in this VUCA world, capacity should be built in specific areas to enhance each and everyone’s career delivery. Reeling out Landmark’s expectations from ACCA, the acting Vice-Chancellor urged the body to always consider the students while costing their diets. She added that when registration for diets is affordable, more candidates especially students will have access to the platform thereby building them for the world of works. “There is no way Tobi won’t be able to stand internationally by the requisite of training he had here and in ACCA. Doing more of that for our students is why we are here. We would have to sit back to incorporate and update the MoU for the benefits of the institution”, Professor Aremu further stated.  

In his remark, the Dean College of Business and Social Science, (DCBS) Dr Ben Caleb Egbeide made it known that the College is ready for the ACCA’s accreditation exercise. Dr Egbeide added that “we want to let our students take advantage of whatever will enhance their professional and academic growth. As a College, we are passionate about professionalism, accounting productive career is a must, hence the reason we are driving vigorously to build our students”.  He revealed that so far, the Accounting department has recorded quite a number of students who were outstanding in ACCA diets and other professional examinations and not limited to Tobi Oladiran and Grace Adeoye. 

In his response, Mr Charles Awhewhejiri noted that one of the reasons for the visit is to chart ways to further enhance the presence and imparts of ACCA in the University. Mr Awhewhejiri added that the 2015 collaboration and accreditation exercise made Landmark University a force to reckon with at the ACCA. The ACCA representative indicated that Landmark students enjoy six papers exemption as a result of the institution’s commitment to academic excellence. He, thereafter, said the papers were reviewed at the ACCA headquarters in the United Kingdom for quality assurance. He commended the institution on continually improving her academic status which has culminated into excellent delivery of the students globally. 

The ACCA with over 110 years of experience is recognized by employers worldwide for its innovation and excellence towards enhancing the Accounting profession globally. Founded in 1904, the ACCA has been the global professional accounting body offering the Chartered Certified Accountant qualification (ACCA or FCCA).
