Accounting is the language of business. The ability to understand, speak, and operate in this language is perhaps the most important skill that a business leader can obtain. As the discipline that is integrally important to the efficient operations of markets, accounting aims to continuously improve the quality of information made available to capital market participants.

The global financial crisis was yet another wake up call to the importance of the accounting profession’s mission of continuous improvement in recognition, valuation and reporting of business activity. To this end, we are actively incorporating developments and staying tune in with standard setters such as the FASB and IAS as they move forward with the convergence between US GAAP and IFRS. We welcome you to join us in the study of and internationalization of accounting standards and practice.
