The International Arab Society of Certified Accountants (IASCA) was founded in 1984 and year after year it has achieved new accomplishments that are a source of pride to its members, directors, management, students and the Arab profession.
It is truly an international body that serves the entire region. It provides the opportunity for accounting practitioners to enhance their professional knowledge and to keep up to date with the many new developments and changes which take place in the global economy.
Similarly, graduates in accounting, commerce and economics can obtain the advanced qualification of the «International Arab Certified Public Accountant (IACPA)». This qualification has won support and recognition in the Arab world and has the backing of the Arab League’s Academy for Science and Technology. The official acceptance of its qualification by the Higher Commission on the Regulation of Accountancy Practice of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, IASCA’s domicile country, was another important milestone in its continuing progress. The IASCA examination certificate has gained further international academic and professional standing through accreditation by Cambridge International Examinations, a department of the world-famous University of Cambridge.
Prior to granting its accreditation, CIE verified the quality of the curriculum, reading lists and examinations. The «International Arab Certified Public Accountant (IACPA)» certificate is issued under the signature and the logo of both IASCA and the University of Cambridge. Prior to this achievement, IASCA had enjoyed a prominent status in the Arab world, as both the certificate and the curriculum were accredited by the Arab Academy for Science and Technology which is affiliated with the League of Arab States.
In short, I’d like to say that it’s God’s blessings and the sincere efforts, as well as the belief in our professional mission, that will help us continue to pursuit our benevolent goals, based on our responsibility to develop the Arab accounting profession. We will continue to exert the best efforts in our power to develop our skills in what we provide. We look forward to nurturing a generation of well-qualified Arab accountants, and providing them with excellent professional skills so that they can best serve their country and the Arab people.
