What a CA can do for your organisation
Explore some of the ways in which an ICAS CA will add value to your organisation.
An ICAS CA is no ordinary accountant
Becoming chartered takes an accountant to the top.
CAs can go above and beyond the professional basics. Our rigorous training and assessments in accountancy, business and ethics ensures they’re qualified at the highest level.
And with a commitment to career-long professional development, they’ll always be at the top of their game.
They’re the best in the business
Did you know that 83% of FTSE organisations employ an ICAS CA?
Those organisations know through experience that our CA syllabus goes beyond accounting to form a rounded business qualification. Our students also gain key skills in management, law, data analysis, communication, presentation and ethical leadership.
No wonder so many graduates choose our CA over an MBA.
Fit for the modern workplace
We develop well-rounded professionals equipped for success in any modern workplace, no matter their role. Because in conjunction with all that technical, financial and business expertise, our students are required to develop and demonstrate a range of essential ‘enabling’ skills.
What does that mean for you?
With an ICAS CA you’ll have a great communicator who understands the dynamics of successful teamwork. You’ll also have an agile thinker ready to solve complex problems and lead on the key decisions.
Ethical leadership, sustainability and the impact of technology will be three key challenges in the future of most organisations and all three feature prominently throughout our syllabus.
With ethics at the heart of their working practices, CAs encourage a responsible and holistic approach. They understand the synergy between environmental, social and governance issues and the broader business agenda. And they’re equipped with the skills and vision to leverage the latest advances in AI, data and digital.
That’s the kind of leadership you need now and for whatever tomorrow brings.
The CA mindset
Our syllabus teaches more than technical theory – it develops a particular mindset. CAs are trained to analyse problems and develop solutions. They’re also committed to a career-long process of learning and development. That means they’ll grow and adapt along with your organisation, whatever the challenges of an ever-changing world.
The perfect package
A CA can help you build an organisation that’s more efficient, analysing data to drive decisions in the right direction. They’ll add efficiency, with accurate performance reviews, risk mitigation and an eye for the golden opportunity. Combine all that with everything from audit to budgets, reporting and regulation for the perfect package of business intelligence and financial expertise.
