FACHHOCHSCHULE WIENER NEUSTADT EXEMPTIONS

We are delighted that Fachhochschule Wiener Neustadt / University of Applied Sciences is an ACT Accredited University. As a student on the Masters in Treasury and Investment Programme (part of the Business Consultancy International programme) you can take advantage of the exemptions you will have earned through your university studies to gain the ACT’s internationally recognised professional accreditation.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU

Completing your Masters in Treasury and Investment means that you are exempt from the Certificate in Treasury Fundamentals and you are also exempt from the Certificate in Treasury.

You are also exempt from unit one of the Diploma in Treasury Management.

Option 1: Certificate in Treasury

Successful Masters in Treasury and Investment Programme graduates can take up the award of the Certificate in Treasury. This means that you receive an exemption from the Certificate in Treasury. You do not need to sit an assessment to gain this exemption as your university studies have been mapped to the Certificate in Treasury syllabus.

 

Option 2: Diploma in Treasury Management

Successful Masters in Treasury and Investment Programme graduates qualify for an exemption from the Diploma in Treasury Management Unit 1 – Corporate Finance for Treasury.

You would therefore only need to complete three units to gain the Diploma in Treasury Management. Once the Diploma in Treasury Management has been completed you can apply to become an Associate Member of the ACT.
