Why study an accounting course?

Without good management of accounts and accurate financial forecasts- a business can die. That’s why Accounting Technicians are crucial to every type of business.

An Accounting Technician can perform the essential everyday bookkeeping services that keep businesses alive, and as you become more experienced you could end up dealing with tax, corporate finance, investments or restructuring at the highest levels of industry.

The more highly qualified accountants take on greater responsibility and can demand much higher salaries. According to Forbes Magazine, around 30% of the CEOs of top Fortune 500 companies had a background in finance. So good financial expertise can propel you to a senior position with a big salary.
