I'm currently involved in an operations management type role in the financial sector with a salary of around £25k. I'm currently considering embarking upon studies with the aim of becoming a qualified accountant in 4 years (part-time studies).
Two questions really. Bearing in mind my current role and salary, is there likely to be any financial advantage for me at the end of the 4 years when I strut around fully qualified? Also, what are the pros and cons of the CIMA and ACCA routes? I'm looking for a qualification that will provide me with as flexible and lucrative opportunities as possible and will also sit nicely alongside my existing management experience.
Any views would be greatly appreciated!
