The four-day exercise ends today with concentration on financial management strategy. On Thursday, the candidates wrote cost and management accounting. Friday examination will also be restricted to public sector accounting to finally end the exercise.
“It is in fulfillment of the requirements needed for the professional examination,” said Executive Director Jallah, noting that the intent of the exam is to prove the professional qualifications of individuals graduating with degree(s) in the accounting profession as it is done in other disciplines like law, medicine, etc., etc.
Mr. Jallah described the test as significant because it is in added advantage in the fight against corruption, as well as supportive of the Public Financial Management Sector of Liberia.
He urged Liberians studying accounting and related disciplines to take advantage of the institute’s program to get professional qualification in public accounting.
