The Chartered Accountancy profession is very dynamic, challenging and remunerative. The profession is growing fast and has spread out its wings in the wider horizon. The Chartered Accountants play a very vital role by providing reliable information to all stakeholders, and society at large. In addition to the conventional role in the realm of accounting, auditing and taxation, today, the Chartered Accountants are performing multifarious roles in the field of business finance, information technology, corporate management, risk management, and corporate law etc. In this globalized economy where cross border business transactions are a norm, the opportunities for the accounting professionals are vast and emerging at much faster pace.
The Institute has constituted the Career Counselling sub-group under BOS, ICAI with an objective to promote Commerce Education with special focus on Chartered Accountancy course amongst the students as well as other stakeholders. It is my pleasure to note that the utilization of Information Technology for such promotion is high on the agenda of the Committee, and to launch its own website with an objective to connect and disseminate relevant information to all is the first e-initiative in this direction.
I am sure that all the information and tools that are available on the website such as publications of the committee, resource materials, information on career counselling programmers, events, activities of the committee etc. will be quite useful for promoting commerce education particularly Chartered Accountancy course in the country. The website will certainly serve as a repository for students aspiring to become Chartered Accountants.
I extend my best wishes to all the students who wish to do CA Course and do hope that they will achieve great success in their set goal. I would also like to acknowledge contribution of the Career Counseliing sub-group under BOS especially Convener & deputy Convener of the aforesaid sub-group and officials of the sub-group for taking such a pro-active initiative.
