Our structured learning approach will help FTMS Singapore ACCA students be well prepared for the ACCA examinations held ievery year in June and December.
The robust economic growth in Singapore and the Asia region over the decade has created a shortfall of suitably qualified professional accountants. This remark was brought up at the Singapore Accountancy Convention in 2010. As Singapore continues to be a regional financial hub, more accountants are needed to meet this demand. FTMSGlobal is poised to be one of the leading tuition course providers for the ACCA Examinations in Singapore.
