Spruce up Your Accounting Skills

January 10, 2019 by OSYB Staff

You’re pretty comfortable with your accounting skills and so are your clients, so why build skills, and spend time and dollars to change?  Goingconcern. com shares a few reasons why sprucing up your accounting skills and adding a Master of Accounting (MAC) degree could be beneficial:

  • Both separate you from those who don’t have the added skill set and the MAC degree.  For example, updated accounting skills give you the expertise in forecasting and providing direction on sales activities to improve the bottom line.
  • Provides you with competencies beyond the numbers and finance.  For example as a sustainability accountant your focus will be on measuring the economic and environmental impact of various business practices.
  • Opens up pathways to new business or career paths.  Did you know that accountants can work with the FBI, be a forensic accountant and solve financial mysteries, or ensure that the Oscars go to the right winners?

If you are happy with what you are doing, or feeling a little restless, or even complacent, you should look into what other possibilities are out there.  You could be missing out on a new venture or you could find out you are exactly where you want to be.  But you won’t know, until you check it out.  Take the beginning of 2019 to explore prospects.
