Accountants Seek Communication Skills

Teacher Insights

Accountants need communication skills as technology is transforming how accountants work and changing client’s expectations of the services they provide. A study done by Prof Rahat Munir, Head of Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance at Macquarie Business School among 315 accountants under age of 30 and 175 managers found that effective communication skills were valued by bother early-career accountants and their managers, followed by problem solving and professionalism. All these skills go hand-in hand to make an accountant a trusted business advisor. The researchers said that accounting students cannot complete a course and become an accredited accountant with all the skills for a successful accounting career if they lack problem solving and communication skills.
