Description

The increasing digitalized world has changed the role of accountants due to technological advancements. This has enhanced the accountant’s ability to analyse and interpret data and making the accountant’s job a little easier. This course hinges on preparing graduates who can integrate traditional accounting principles with software and information systems to create a centralized entity’s financial data. This digitalization also simplifies the process of processing financial information. An information technology accountant will be able to work at a professional services firm, in the accounting department of a private company or in government & non-profit sector. The rapidly evolving relationship between accounting & information technology means accountants now need to understand how technology impacts business and how it can be used to improve operational efficiency, achieve regulatory compliance, support financial reporting & management & even increase revenues. They must also have an appreciation for how to capture & communicate technology needs for their business.
