have a pretty important decision to make over the coming weeks and would like to hear a few opinions from those of you who regularly use this forum, in particular, from DT and those of you currently working in Pakistan.
Right, being based in the UK, I am currently working in Tax at a small firm where upon my graduation in June this summer, I can begin my ACA training with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales. (ICAEW) with the possibility of transferring to one of the Big 4 perhaps next year. However, very recently, I've been offered the opportunity of working in Product Control at what is probably the most prestigious American I-bank and the chance to study for the CIMA qualification.
If all of you had the desire of ultimately returning to Pakistan to work in a few years' time, which one would you choose as the most sensible of the 2 options? Would firms in Pakistan view the ACA more favourably than the CIMA or vice-versa?
