Mumbai: KPMG in India and global e-learning organisation InterActive have collaborated to deliver online accountancy and finance programmes to students and professionals in India  and have announced this initiative today (25 August 2016). This project paves the way for the creation of KPMG in India and InterActive, providing finance and accountancy professionals with the skills and qualifications sought by global employers.

The first programme to be offered under the initiative will be online training which prepares participants for the globally recognised Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification. The programme will be delivered by a unique learning model through which students can access online lectures broadcast live from InterActive’s studios, along with a series of masterclasses from KPMG in India. InterActive is an award-winning online education organisation and a part of international educational provider Global University Systems.

Vitaly Klopot, chief operating officer at InterActive, said: “We believe online education has the potential to change lives. Through KPMG in India and InterActive’s distance learning tools, future accountants and finance professionals will be given the opportunity to secure highly sought-after qualifications and advance their careers to the next level.”

“Research shows that the ACCA qualification is one of the most recommended of its kind for professional accountants, so we are delighted to be working with KPMG in India to deliver this programme and look forward to increasing the number of ACCA-qualified professionals in India.”

Gaurav Vohra, Partner – Accounting Advisory Services, KPMG in India, added: “KPMG in India is excited at the opportunity to provide one of the industry leading mentorship and skills training programmes for online ACCA students in cooperation with InterActive.

Andrew Malley, Global University Systems’ director of strategic international development, remarked: “This new initiative addresses a very contemporary issue in global education. By joining forces with KPMG in India, we bring a vital industry input into what is normally an academically driven subject area. If students want an established accountancy education on a distinct platform, then KPMG in India & InterActive is possibly the best in the market.”

As per the statement issued by the InterActive, Tuition fees will start at INR5,600 for ACCA Foundation level papers, up to INR20,000 for the more advanced levels. The first KPMG in India and InterActive programme will commence in August 2016.

With more than 100 courses and 12,000 students worldwide, InterActive is a recruitment partner for academic institutions, working alongside universities in the U.K., the U.S., and Europe to make their courses available to global markets. InterActive is part of Global University Systems, an international education group.
