The purpose of this study is to investigate the interest among accounting students in pursuing management accounting professional certificates in the future and the factors that influence the interests among accounting students in pursuing management accounting professional certificates in the future. In this study, the targeted population is the accounting students from Politeknik Seberang Perai (PSP). Questionnaire was used as the main instrument for collecting data from the respondents. The study shows that the factors such as job opportunities and income, family and friends, instructors, colleagues and management accounting course (s) significantly influence interests among accounting students in pursuing certificate of professional management accounting in the future. The research provides a better understanding regarding the factors affecting the interests among accounting students in pursuing certificate of professional management accounting in the future. The result shows that students are most interested in financial accounting rather than management accounting and the most important factor that may negatively influence their interest is job opportunities and income. However, it is emphasized that there is still a need to conduct additional research to fill the gaps that have not been covered in the current study. In the final chapter, some recommendations were provided for future use to any researcher in this academic field
