I decided to go towards this master in order to have a real speciality in accounting, taxation in order to pass my DSG then my diploma of chartered accountancy (DEC). By passing the CCA Master's degree, I left the faculty with 5 out of 7 UEs from the DSGC. My university career within the FEG of Aix-en-Provence during these 3 years taught me a lot, not only about my knowledge in the different subjects, but also about my personal development. The team of professors and administrative staff supported us throughout our studies. Since the end of my master's degree, I have worked for one year in an accounting firm. I then reoriented myself in the medico-social field. I am now the director of three EHPADs. The skills and knowledge acquired during the CCA master's degree are useful to me on a daily basis.

As a young graduate of a Master 2 CCA in initial training, here is my testimony about my five years of studies at the Faculty of Economics and Management in Aix-en-Provence. After two years of a bachelor's degree in economics and management, I specialized in accounting and financial management. This L3 was in adequacy with the subjects discovered in the previous years such as financial diagnosis, accounting and law. At the end of L3, I chose to do an internship in a holding company in order to understand how to keep the accounts of different companies and to learn the specificities of this kind of company. I went for the CCA master's degree because I didn't know if I wanted to take the DSCG, but it's always useful to have a diploma that gives equivalence to the DSCG. Moreover, this master's degree allowed me to develop my knowledge in in-depth accounting, financial diagnosis, discovering auditing but also to have notions on business valuation and financial markets. The master 2 CCA offers possibilities, not only in accountancy or legal audit. Moreover, it is possible to work abroad if you have the means to do so.

After three years in post-bac business school, I wanted to go into accounting. So I did some research and the diploma that caught my attention was the L3 MCF. So I joined the L3 MCF at the University of Aix-Marseille. The latter allowed me to acquire solid skills in economics, accounting, finance and law that I hadn't had before. This bachelor's degree was also the occasion of my first professional discovery in a firm. Attracted by the Diploma of Chartered Accountancy, I continued my education afterwards in M1 and then in M2 CCA at the University of Aix-Marseille. The CCA Master's degree is a springboard to the DEC by obtaining 5 out of 7 DSCG equivalencies. It also allows students to acquire a recognized Master's degree in business. The Master CCA is a high level diploma that has allowed me to acquire good skills, both technical (accounting, finance, auditing, legal), organizational (teamwork, synthesis work, writing), but also professional (internship, some courses are taught by professionals). These skills have enabled me to evolve more easily in the firm. It is a professional diploma that allows you to be hired after an internship or a work-study program. My entry into working life was smooth. I was lucky enough to complete my Master 2 CCA in a work-study program, and at the end of this year of work-study, I was offered a permanent contract. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to join the firm from November in order to have the necessary time for the revisions of the UE1 and UE4 of the DSCG which cannot be dispensed with. After obtaining these UE immediately after obtaining my Master's degree, I started my traineeship as a chartered accountant at the beginning of the following year. At the end of my 3 years of internship, I had the opportunity to present the DEC exams which I validated! After having worked in a firm for several years during my chartered accountant internship, I oriented myself after obtaining my DEC towards business.

After completing a DUT in Business Management and Administration at the Gap site, I continued my studies with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. The Gap Licence 3 GE is a human-sized training course, not an "industrial" one, with competent teachers who are above all attentive to their students' needs. The small number of students in this course is an asset for developing the skills taught. I have never considered the 3 GE de Gap licence as a training course but more as a family that meets every day to study. Indeed, the teachers use personalized teaching for each student and take the time to explain. The licence has brought me the desire to create my own business and to continue my studies in the field of entrepreneurship. After the bachelor's degree, I entered the 2nd year of PGE at the EM Strasbourg.

Following a VIE Finance at Orange and 3 years in external audit in BIG 4 in Luxembourg, I now hold a position of Direct Reporting to the management of a large Chinese Group for its entities based in Europe and Middle East. The CCA master's degree has largely contributed to these varied opportunities in the Finance sector while remaining a solid base for the pursuit of diplomas such as DSCG, ACCA and CFA.

I followed a classical curriculum at the FEG of Aix-Marseille, from L3 MCF to the Master CCA. Obtaining the diploma presents multiple interests: First of all, it justifies a BAC+5 level, and the outcome that this implies; It allows a real professional integration; Finally, it allows the partial validation of the DSCG (5 out of 7 UEs). The Master's calendar is also in line with that of the DSCG: obtaining the M2 in June 2014 gave me [...] Read more

The Master's calendar is also in line with that of the DSCG: obtaining the M2 in June 2014 gave me the motivation to go and get the DSCG in October. I then started my internship as a chartered accountant in a firm of AJACCIO, in January 2015. These three years of internship, which were both enriching and rewarding, enabled me to submit my thesis in February 2018 and to obtain the DEC in the May 2018 session. I became a partner in the wake of obtaining the DEC. I have excellent memories of those academic years and of Ms. Nadine RICCI. She will make available to you her personal and professional network, extended over the PACA-Corsica region; and of course, her passion for her students. I always remember the first day of M2 CCA. At the end of the summer, our search for a professional internship had not even started yet, Mrs RICCI kindly called us back to order and presented us with an Excel table, which already included about fifty contacts from firms in the surrounding area . In short, you will be in good hands!
