For Parents & Guardians

At the Malta Institute of Accountants, we recognise what an important stage your child is in at this time of their life. Eventually, every child will make their own decision on their preferred direction for their future. However, as parents/guardians, we all want to know that we have done everything possible to make sure that our children are supported in the best way possible. Ultimately, everyone wants the best for their child!


To ensure that every child is aware of potential career options, the MIA is organising information sessions aimed at Year 8, Year 11, and Post-Secondary students. Delivered by professional accountants, these sessions showcase a true picture of the Accountancy Profession, providing your child with a glimpse of what their life could be like if they choose accounts as an O-Level subject and beyond. The sessions will also delve into the relevance of financial literacy and will help students make an informed decision about accountancy as a potential career path.


Contrary to common misconceptions, a career in accountancy provides:

  • multiple entry points to qualify and attain the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Warrant, which can be later supplemented by a Practising Certificate in Auditing (where the primary routes are the Master in Accountancy degree from the University of Malta, or the ACCA Qualification through the MIA-ACCA Joint Examination Scheme),

  • attractive remuneration packages,

  • a high and consistent demand in the employment market for qualified accountants, who are offered an immeasurable number of opportunities within a vast array of industries, as well as a demand for employees with a financial background,

  • a solid business background that is transferrable across businesses and industries,

  • continuous learning opportunities ensuring necessary skills for sustained relevance,

  • numerous opportunities for travelling and related experiences,


and, so much more.


We appreciate the significance of your child being at this ‘crossroads’ moment, so to support you and your child, the Institute is endeavouring to visit every state, church, and independent institution. If you are interested in us visiting and delivering an information session at your child's school, get in touch with us.
