of intense competition and regulatory changes. In this competitive environment, it is imperative
for our members to put concerted efforts to be well versed with the contemporary developments
taking place. In order to enhance their knowledge, it has become mandatory for the
professionals to study, analyze, update and discuss the changes going on in various fields from
time to time. This will help them to contribute more effectively at the leadership positions.
Taking cognizance of its role, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is launching
a "Diploma on Management and Business Finance (DMBF)" to impart the nitty-gritties of
finance amongst the members of the Institute. The course has been specifically designed to provide an in-depth and comprehensive knowledge of
theoretical as well as practical aspects of Business Finance,in a very practical and simplified manner. I am confident that this newly launched
Diploma will be immensely useful to the members of the Institute.
I place on record my compliments to all the members of Committee on Management Accounting for launching the Diploma on Management and
Business Finance (DMBF) for the benefit of stakeholders at large. I am sure this Diploma would facilitate our members in practice as well as in
industry to acquire specialized knowledge and cope-up with the challenges and complexities lying ahead.
