Global accounting membership bodies came together to attend the first in a series of presentation events held at London’s evening university, Birkbeck University of London.
The successful event which took place in the renowned Brunei Suite provided students the opportunity to explore their professional chartered route options available to them upon graduation.
During the evening ICAEW, IFA, ACCA, CIMA, CPA Australia were overwhelmed with student interaction and answered challenging questions during and after their presentations.
Jennifer Korsak of ICAEW delivered a keynote presentation, explained the benefits of joining the ICAEW and said:
“To maintain training quality ICAEW trainees will need to work with ICAEW approved employers. However, if students found employment with a non-approved employer, the process of approval is smooth and fast and all details could be found on the ICAEW website”
The membership bodies emphasised the global benefits available to prospective professional students and career pathways available to them during training and upon qualifying.
During the event Dr Julian Sims of Birkbeck University emphasised the importance of professional education and development.
Dr. Sims said:
“We live in economic uncertain times, where graduates are faced with immense competition in the employment market. Opting to embark on what is a tough yet rewarding journey of chartered accountancy is an option to overcome the limitations todays UK graduates are experiencing”
Birkbeck University of London is predominantly an evening university providing education to students who work during office hours. And this gives our students a distinct advantage to continue building their careers while having the opportunity to study.
The Professional Membership Bodies Event aimed at demonstrating the options available to students and to provide intuitive understanding in respect of what the subject bodies had to offer its trainees and members.
At the event 7City, the international Business School with a presence in London, New York, Dubai and Singapore presented an option for those who were interested in the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) qualification.
