Accounting & Finance

“The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go.” – J.P. Morgan, American Financier/Banker

 

Indisputably, the critical components that drives the world of business stems from the famous FAME subjects (Finance, Accounting, Management and Economics). Pursuing a higher education in Accounting and Finance would better equip you with the knowledge on how businesses, management and money are connected whilst covering the practical and major features of economics. An investment to the knowledge of Accounting and Finance without a doubt pays the best interest.

 

What is Accounting and Finance?

Contrary to common understanding, the two subjects of Accounting and Finance are actually not one and the same. On one hand, Accounting centres on the daily management of financial records and reports in a business. Students in the field of Accounting concentrate on professional processes and principles to handle numbers. On the other hand, Finance often refers to the financial strategy and control features of the enterprise. Finance students learn to evaluate and interpret the assets and debts, and propose future growth strategies following the company’s finances. In essence, Accounting is a narrow-focus subject as compared to the wide-range aspects of Finance.
