Business Studies Department
The Accounting Section, Business Studies Department, Higher College of Technology (HCT) is the only section which caters for students with Accounting specialization up to the Bachelor’s level of certification though this is also offered by most of the technical colleges under the auspices of the Ministry of Manpower.
This is notwithstanding that the section also offers Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) Program, an international certification for accounting technicians under the ACCA.
We are proud and elated of our successful graduates who are now gainfully employed in their chosen field of Accounting specialization. Thus, in behalf of all the Accounting staff members, we would like to express our full commitment and deepest support to our students.
Accounting and Finance is still fastest growing field in the business world. The Accounting Section of Business Studies department is to prepare the students to pursue their career goals in public, corporate or government sector in various positions such as accountant, financial analyst, tax consultant, international accountant and internal auditor.
From time to time the scope of accounting and finance specialization is increasing. There is hardly any organization in which the separate department for accounting and finance does not exist. The career opportunities in this specialization range from checking of ledger, preparation of financial statements to forecasting and budgeting to tax consultant and auditor. Without accounting department input the organization key decisions are incomplete. Since, the evolution of this field of specialization the interest of learner and professional never lost. The continuous amendments in different provision and standards and development of new accounting software keep the interest of new learner and professionals of this field on track.
Should you have any query, please feel free to contact the Section Head at 24473632 in Room BS042 or any of the Accounting staff members in the Department.
