Beyond Accounting – Education and Accountants

For this event we are partnering with Chartered Accountants Ireland and Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business and focusing on the skills needed for accountants to maintain and enhance their trusted leadership position working with or for companies in industry or practice.

The target audience is anyone aspiring to become a qualified accountant; those who are already studying to be accountants and those who have already qualified as accountants and want to assess what skills they need to consider acquiring or improving.

All accounting bodies globally are facing the same challenges – and education and continuing development are key areas of relevance to every accountant or aspiring accountant.
