In the wake of the global meltdown and slowdown affecting the country, the profession of accounting would take lead in ensuring financial discipline at all levels of management, Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) President Ved Jain said today.
"It is our profession, which can guide and take the lead in ensuring financial discipline to the profession of accounting," he said in a release issued by the Institute as part of the first convocation ceremony held here.
Jain said a Chartered Accountant is not only best suited for finance but could excel at all levels, including human resources, policy making and a complete business solution provider.
On the occasion, over 800 students received their certificates, the release said.
ICAI is the second-largest accounting body in the world. It operates through five regional offices and 117 branches across the country and has 21 overseas chapters, the release added.
