ICAB mulls formulating waiver policy for varsity students

After completion of the university degree, if someone decides to study chartered accountancy, he would get subjects waiver upon fulfilling certain criteria. ICAB is formulating a waiver policy for the students of public universities; the students of Jagannath University would certainly get the benefits out of this policy.

Kamrul Abedin FCA, President-ICAB said these at a seminar on ‘Chartered Accountancy: Career Excellence’ organised jointly by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB) and the Department of Accounting & Information System(AIS), Jagannath University at Central Auditorium of the university on Saturday, 29 October 2016.

Vice Chancellor, Jagannath University Professor Dr. Mijanur Rahman graced the occasion as icab-seminar-photothe Chief Guest while Treasurer Professor Dr. Md Salim Bhuiyan and Dean, Faculty of Business studies Professor Dr. Moniruzzaman were present as Special Guests. Professor Dr. Ali Noor, Chairman, Department of Accounting and Information System, Jagannath University gave the inaugural speech.

Explaining the demand of Chartered Accountants in Bangladesh, ICAB President said the country needs a huge number of CAs to meet the growing demand. He referred that in UK, majority of CEOs in listed companies are Chartered Accountants. Chartered Accountancy rather than other accounting professional degrees would give the opportunity to reach to the top position of organizations, he stated.

Professor Dr. Mijanur Rahman said graduates in general education are not able to reach the top position of the organization. If you want to reach there, you need a professional degree like Chartered Accountancy. Chartered Accountants are well informed smart professionals. They are the instrumental in solving problems, for these reasons, highly graded companies / multinational companies need them.

Professor Dr. Md Salim Bhuiyan said, ICAB and Jagannath University need to sit together to explore more avenues to work on so that students would avails more benefits.

Professor Dr. Ali Noor demands subjects’ waiver in studying Chartered Accountancy for the students of Department of Accounting and Information System, which they have already studied in BBA or MBA. ICAB Vice President Mahmudul Hasan Khusru FCA gave a motivational speech. A documentary on ICAB was also presented in the seminar.
