With a fondness for numbers, Mr Siddarth Khanna, 22, an auditor at one of the Big Four audit firms, chose accounting as his career. He pursued the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification to fast-track his studies, completing the course in two and a half years at the Kaplan Learning Institute.
To spur himself on, Mr Khanna aimed to achieve world and national rankings for each of the ACCA modules. To complete the course sooner, he took extra modules each semester, using the classes at Kaplan to shorten his learning curve.
"Every time I made an enquiry on an Internet forum or did a search, Kaplan was always rated number one. Kaplan Financial, a department of the institute, was awarded the ACCA Platinum Status Learning Partner, which reassured me on the quality of ACCA education they provided," he says.
The Platinum status is only awarded to institutions that have achieved ACCA's defined standards of learning facilities, outstanding student support and pass rates that meet or exceed ACCA's global pass rates.
The institute is also a recipient of the EduTrust certification by the Council for Private Education, which acknowledges the quality excellence of its programmes and services as well as business operations.
