Accounting and finance play a crucial role in the management and survival of businesses and contribute to the economic growth of a country. The world needs accountants and finance professionals who can record, classify, summarise, interpret and communicate financial information necessary for making informed strategic choices for businesses to grow. These professionals will also help businesses follow correct accounting standards and comply with the law. This course will also help you understand the power and limitations of accountancy and financial techniques and how they complement other subject areas, particularly those which fall under the wider umbrella of business.
