Need to Know!
Here at aCOWtancy - we are passionate believers in ethical, cool businesses - you know the kind - they focus on the environment, the provenance of their products and care about their employees / customers / society
Genuinely it's a joy to shop with these type of businesses
So I personally think the Ethics module is crucial - but I do wish it would be seen by the ACCA as being something more entrepreneurial (as it is) and a bit more funky (hipsters were born out of ethics)
I know that 95% of our students are lovely, progressive, open minded individuals who will undoubtedly go onto great things and ethics to them come naturally
What this shows me is a mindset of - "Let me get as much as possible for as little as I possibly can" - and that's a very short term approach to business..
Doing the right thing - for me - means producing the very best materials - at a price that is affordable. It means continually updating, it means no annoying advertising and just a great an experience as we can manage.
It is this ethical approach that will continually help us stay ahead of the game.
Ethics does not mean - giving everything away for free. It means treating all stakeholders well and running a very successful business the right way
Remember to achieve full membership of the ACCA you not only need to pass the examinations but also to complete the ethics module and the experience requirements.
Duration: 20 hours
PS You have access to the ethics module once you have done AB, MA, FA.
Recommended that it is done before attempting SBL
All the best
