In a rapidly changing world filled with uncertainty, it is only natural to seek stability, both now and for your future. Seeking a career path that equips you with both technical skills and knowledge can make all the difference, more so if it offers continuous learning and advancement opportunities throughout your career. What better than a career in accountancy?
All organizations, from home businesses and start-ups to NGOs and multinational corporations, need accountants to manage their financial obligations. This remains true regardless of the state of the economy. As such, accountants will always be able to find new opportunities throughout their careers.
There is a great need for qualified accountants throughout the country. The Malaysian Institute of Accountants reports that the country is still short of its targeted 60,000 accounting professionals. With the current standing of just under 40,000, it is expected that Malaysia will only reach the target number in 2030.
Having a good understanding of accountancy and finance principles opens doors to a myriad of jobs, not just those traditionally linked to numbers.
All of these mean accountancy students have everything going for them once they graduate.
Accountancy, a career of limitless opportunity

The Future of Accountancy
We have been warned for years that artificial intelligence (AI) is slowly taking over the world but that may not be a bad thing. While many of us are concerned of losing our jobs to AI, the rise of the latest technology entering the workforce creates new products and services, brings about new markets, and improves productivity. According to ZipRecruiter, an employment marketplace, AI has created three times as many jobs as it took away in 2018. AI may have come into play in completing repetitive tasks such as recording data and sorting transactions. However, the inception of AI has simultaneously led to new accountancy specialties such as forensic accounting and IT governance. The availability of large amounts of new information due to AI creates a demand for skilled accountants to interpret and process this data.
So, Why Choose ACCA?
If you happen to have your sights set on being an accountant, being an ACCA-accredited accountant is the way to go. You can become an ACCA accredited accountant within a period of just 4 years without the need of a degree in accounting.
