You are well aware that the ICMAB is playing a vital role in economic development of the country through its continuous endeavor in supplying competent professional accountants. The very purpose of the formation of the institute is promoting and regulating the cost and management accounting profession in the country. In addition to offering management accounting education to students, the institute also plays a significant role by arranging different training programs for its members to ensure the level of competency which keeps them highly demanded in the market place.
You know that we, the professional accountants, work in a very highly competitive and changing business environment. In such a situation, we are running the risk of getting obsolete if we don’t keep ourselves updated with the changed skill-sets required by employers. IFAC (2010) and CGMA (2014) studies identified five categories of skill-sets demanded from professional accountants which are intellectual skills, technical & functional skills, personal skills, interpersonal & communication skills and business management skills. The institute also studies the necessity of skills required by its members considering the surrounding market. IT skills as a part of technical & functional skills get the highest attention as the economy has already transformed as IT based economy. Accounting and reporting functions are going to be mostly technology based keeping it in line with the national slogan ‘Digital Bangladesh’.
You will be happy to know that the institute is organizing a specialized training program for the members titled ‘Business and Financial Modeling’. The training program covers three modules: MS Excel 2016 (Basic to Advanced), Financial Modeling Using MS Excel 2016 and Feasibility Study.
