Money Management for Youth

Youth have access to a wide range of resources and applications that allow them to individually manage nearly every aspect of their personal finances. Therefore, the introduction of a strong sense of value and appropriate management of money and finance is essential to help today’s younger generation. When you start to manage your finances, you'll have a better perspective on where and how you're spending your money. This can help you stay within your budget and even increase your savings. With good personal financial management, you'll also learn to control your money so you can achieve your financial goals. When an individual starts paying his debt, interest rates usually impact his ability to pay down the principal balance quickly. 
 Join us to explore the importance of money management and what the key decisions on money matters are. Book your seat while it’s available. See you.

Disruptive Technologies, COVID19 and the Changing Landscapes of Accounting Education & Research

The reality of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) has been forced on the less tech-savvy by the disruptive virus popularly known as covid-19. In this context, the responsiveness of accounting education and research related due to disruptive technology prior Covid-19 is a key indicator to their survival in the 4IR era. Nations of the world should consider digitalizing their economy as a panacea to possible future crisis. Interacting with the mode of operation of Bitcoin as an example is fundamental and inevitable because, the blockchain as the underlying technology of Bitcoin is capable of revolutionalising the accounting education and research, particularly, digital trade markets, in the near future through its popular features such as digitised distributed ledger, exceptional transparency and authenticated security of financial records. More importantly, accounting education and research are responsible to provide exposure to both public and private sectors and they are expected to demonstrate expertise in all forms of financial engagements of their client companies to provide timely and accurate financial services.
