I am originally from Spain but I am working in London. Im already qualified as I have a 5 years degree in business administration and management. Currently I am working in the account department of a multinational company in London and I would like to study a masters degree or go for ACCA, ACA, AATor CIMA exams. My question is what it´s better to do here in the UK , study a masters degree or obtain one of the accountancy certificaction in order to develop a strong professional career? Are the CIMA and AAT exams globally recognized?
Is the ICAEW the same as the ACA exam?
If I pass the CIMA or the AAT certifications would I be able to apply for jobs in other countries like Canada , Australia ( Commonwealth countries ) and the US ? Or is it better to study a masters degree so as to work in any country in the world?

A masters degree is not an accountancy qualification, and whether it will help you get you work anywhere in the world depends on what work it is, what the employers criteria are, and from what university you earn the degree.
The accountancy qualifications are ICAEW (which gives the ACA qualification), ACCA and CIMA. They are all recognised in most countries throughout the world.
