BESC inks pacts with ACCA – to provide advanced international courses in Accounting

Kolkata April 19th, 2017. The Bhawanipur Education Society College (BESC) signed an MOU to offer students an array of professional courses aimed at providing them with the necessary wherewithal to integrate themselves and meet the demands emanating from the industrial establishments. Among the courses that will be immediately offered consequent upon the signing of the MoU will be the comprehensive course offered by the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) and Diploma in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

“This is the first step towards the pursuit of greater global integration of the institution” said Prof Dilip Shah, the Dean of Student Affairs of BESC “and henceforth, our efforts will be aimed at providing BESC students the best opportunities that will empower them to emerge as globally deployable knowledge warriors, professionals capable of dominating their domains of expertise irrespective of geographical constraints.”

In the near future, BESC has also set on motion moves to launch integrated MCom International Financial Accounting with ACCA and students will be able to secure BSc (H) from the Oxford Brookes University. Willing students will also be awarded MSc degrees by the University of London, pursuant to the submission of relevant Research Papers.


“It will be a win-win situation for the students who will have access to globally recognised qualifications with all the attendant benefits even as they attend the classes from within the confines of their home campus in BESC” said Miraj D. Shah, the Vice Chairman of BESC. “This is also a vindication of sorts for BESC and it is a matter of great happiness that the state of the art campus that we have painstakingly built over the years not to mention the quality of education imparted by our faculty is being acknowledged by educationists and global professional bodies”.

It will not be out of place to mention here that BESC is perhaps the only institution of its kind which has MoU’s in place with the Institute of Cost Accountants of India (ICAI) and the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI). A similar agreement with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is also under process.

BESC, which is celebrating its 50th year of being, is a premier city based institution and has curved out a distinct niche for itself as a forerunner in the field of Commerce. The BESC campus is completely wired with live wifi and smart classrooms where students are not only encouraged to excel academically but are provided with exposure to live economic and business experiences with a holistic view so that their integration into the real world of trade, industry and commerce is as seamless as possible. The college routinely organises innumerable seminars, workshops and conferences where experts from the industry share their experiences while interacting with the 9000 plus students apart from organising field trips to the factory and shop floors for the students to expose them to the world of industry.
