Malta Institute of Accountants (MIA) CEO Maria Cauchi Delia and President David Delicata honoured local student Maria Sciberras after placing second amongst thousands of students around the globe during the March 2022 Strategic Professional Exams, held by international accounting body ACCA.

Ms Cauchi Delia and Mr Delicata presented the award alongside Malta representative on the ACCA International Assembly Thomas Galea.

“Such a top placement among the global cohort of participants in such a competitive examination is an astounding achievement for this youngster. It is also another reminder that despite the limitations of our size, Maltese students perform admirably next to their international counterparts, and this achievement will go a long way in inspiring future students to take on the accountancy path,” Mr Delicata said.

“[Ms Sciberras’ result] is testament to the quality of accountants that Malta is able to nurture, year after year. The institute remains by the side of all those who will undertake this path, providing support, advice, and direction through our dedicated team,” the President added.

Mr Galea went on to praise Ms Sciberras for her achievement, highlighting her ‘can-do’ attitude which bodes well for her future career prospects.

“Such a result is obtained through effort and dedication, thanks to the support of family, friends, and work colleagues,” the student said.

“I do hope that this achievement serves as an inspiration to many young students, particularly women, who undertake studies in the accountancy sector which truly opens the door for an exciting career, one through which you can achieve true personal satisfaction by contributing to a better society for all,” she concluded.
