ZD Academy

Delivering technical excellence

Thank you for dropping by to view our website. Whether you are new to the Academy or a returning student, we are pleased to present our courses, and options for 2022 herein.

As an introduction, and in case you are wondering what the Z&D refer to in the Academy’s name. ZD Academy was founded by Mr. Matthew Zampa (Z) and Mr. John Debattista (D) who founded Zampa Debattista back in 2014.

Before kick starting their own venture, the partners had accumulated over a decade of experience in accounting and assurance, developing a specialization – respectively – in Indirect Taxation and Financial Reporting. Since then, Zampa Debattista has grown into a 360-degree business advisory firm covering areas such as Direct Taxation, Financial Advisory, and Assurance and Business Funding and more recently into the field of education.

In 2019, the firm launched ZD Academy with an ethos based around raising the next generation of accounting professionals with integrity, honour and passion through the implementation of a technical and people excellence based approach. The Academy became a fully-fledged Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) licensed and accredited institute of Higher Education on the 29th of July 2021 with License number 2021-10.

2021 was a very busy year indeed for the Academy as it also became an ACCA approved Silver Learning Partner and together with our four homegrown MQF 5 awards and MQF level 7 Strategic Professional. This upward trajectory has continued unabated in 2022 with the delivery of the first GAPSME MQF 5 rated award in Malta so make sure to keep up to date through our ZDA newsletter, to like our Facebook page. We are only an email away so feel free to reach out to us directly on info@zdacademy.com for a one to one review of your learning needs and wants. We look forward to seeing you in class.
