Although I am still a first-year student, I have taken alot of time to think about what I want to do in the future. With the many accounting designations its hard to choose which one to target for.
I had then decided to narrow my options down to a Chartered Accountant or a Chartered Management Accountant. This is due to the fact that I have a cousin that had graduated from the same program I am in right now and became a CMA and I am quite interested in what he does. I also chose the CA designation because it is a little bit of a challenge from what I hear from people, and I firmly believe that the more you suffer, the greater the reward.
Although they both have the same capabilities, a CA designation is alot harder to obtain. Due to this reason, I am inclined to enter into the Bachelor of Accounting program after I finish my Financial Management Diploma in hopes in obtaining both my Bachelor of Accounting and my CA designation through their joint program at BCIT.
