Our Core Values
The BICA Qualification
BICA (with the support of the MFDP and the World Bank) entered into a twinning arrangement with one of the world`s leading professional bodies, The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), to facilitate the development of the Botswana professional accountancy qualification.
Reciprocity between BICA and ICAEW membership will be a future outcome of the programme, subject to approval of the relevant ICAEW and BICA committees. Reciprocity will lead to wider international recognition and to international portability for the BICA qualification.
