AB gets a name change

The Accountant in Business (AB)/Foundations in Accountant and Business ACCA exam is changing its name to Business and Technology (BT)/Foundations in Business and Technology later this month.

Technology has always been a key element in this exam, but ACCA wants the name to ‘better reflect’ the existing exam syllabus. By emphasising technology ACCA also believes it shows the exam’s forward-looking focus.

The only downside PQ magazine can see is the fact ACCA no longer has a FAB exam!
