Default Wondering!?

What is the average age of finishing ACCA/CA/CPA/CIMA studies and start out in a practical working experience in different countries?

Welcome to BE.

You might need to be a bit more specific - are you asking for you, if so which of those do you come under and which countries are you looking at?

Oh OK, Thank you. I was asking about myself. I am partially qualified ACCA but left it for some reasons. Now I wonder if I get back would it be worthwhile to continue? Considering I don't have much experience in accounts field as expect from such an age.

I know two people who have recently CIMA qualified, both are in their forties - they obviously consider it worthwhile.

But really it will depend on your situation, and the country you're aiming for I guess. Where are you hoping to move to? I'd suggest you ask in the relevant country forum and hopefully some financial peeps will be able to advise you.

Good luck.

OK i will try asking in Canada, UK, and Ireland section, if there is. Can you tell me how much experience they had in the field when they completed their CIMA? Or they were fresh in the field with irrelevant experience?

I don't think CIMA is recognised in Canada, but a quick search of the Canada forum will bring up relevant threads with info.

One had worked in finance related jobs for the past 20 years, the other hadn't ever worked in finance (she was a housewife/mother). It's actually a husband and wife, good friends of mine, he did it first over several years whilst working full-time and then she got so interested in it all she started doing it too!
