Why study Accounting?
Accounting is a key function in all organisations. Without effective accounting procedures and accountants to provide timely and relevant information to management, organisations may perform less successfully than they otherwise might.
Studying Accounting will enable you to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for understanding and taking part in the world of business. Even if you are not planning a career in business, this subject helps to improve your personal effectiveness by developing your ability to think logically, work accurately, make decisions and solve problems.
The skills that you develop in Accounting are useful in many careers such as finance, IT consulting, tax planning and management consulting.
