“Kingdom University is accredited by ACCA, UK”

The BSc in Finance and Accounting at Kingdom University (KU) was accredited by ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) in the UK in 2011 and the accreditation was renewed in each of 2015 and 2019, as the accreditation validity is for four years. During the recent renewal of ACCA accreditation, ACCA approved to give exemptions from six ACCA exams for KU graduates in Finance and Accounting.
