Accounting is the language of business and it is needed now more than ever before.
Put simply, Accounting involves the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions of a business. It allows a company to analyse the performance of the business, and look at data such as net profit and liquidity. It is also the means by which relevant and reliable financial information can be communicated to different stakeholders who can then analyse that information in order for them to make informed business decisions.
Sound dull? It's anything but.
As markets become more complex and competition becomes ever more challenging then businesses are increasingly looking towards leaders with a strong financial skill set to guide them. There is no doubting the importance of understanding financial data and of the dangers to a business of losing sight of the bottom line.
Accounting at Bede's encourages pupils to not only be able to produce financial data but also to understand it and appreciate that financial information is not the only factor that should influence your decisions; but it is a vital component.
Accountants are no longer the boring men in grey suits but the drivers of modern business. More than twice as many FTSE100 companies now have a chairman or CEO with accountancy or finance background (58%) than in the mid 1990s (24%).
Our simple aim is for Bede's pupils to become the leaders of tomorrow.
