PUC Plus- A Visionary Course
The accounting and finance profession is a dynamic, challenging and
rewarding profession always. The Chartered Accountancy (CA) Course
is a blend of theoretical education and practical training to equip a
person with knowledge, skills, competency, confidence, and attitude
required of a professional accountant. Specifically, a chartered
accountant is specialized in accounting, finance, auditing and taxation.
But all these disciplines are highly integrated to enable a chartered
accountant perform a variety of finance and accounting functions. A
typical chartered accountant can perform as a practicing auditor, chief
accountant, chief finance manger, financial analyst,
stock/commodity/forex market analyst, tax consultant, portfolio
manager, finance advisor, etc. The domain of jobs for a chartered
account is so vast across private sector, public sector, and government
organizations like Indian Railways, India Posts, etc. There is no
organization, whether it is a for-profit organization or a not-for-profit
organization that can function without involvement of a chartered
account either directly or indirectly. In fact, a chartered account is a
family doctor to keep up the financial health of an organization. With
the world becoming more and more integrated by ever-increasing
cross-border trade and investments, the career options for a chartered
accountant are becoming globalized. So a chartered account can place
himself/herself anywhere in the world.
