Seek to grow in the field of accounting by gaining knowledge of the ongoing changes in the accounting environment. The master’s course in accounting shall further help me reach my goal to become a CPA.
Statement of objective:
After more than 6 year's full time work experience in the field of accounting with various reputed firms like XYZ, ABC, PQR and a little over 2 years of volunteering experience with a CPA firm in accounting, I want to return to academic study and undertake graduate studies in masters of accountancy to broaden my scope in this field.
After graduating with a first class degree in Masters of Accounting from University of XX, I felt I should gain some practical experience working in an accounting environment to gain first-hand knowledge. I have loved every minute of my work: especially the opportunity to participate in projects involving fund accounting for new product and discuss solutions with the verticals across the department in different parts of the world. I soon realized that, although I enjoy handling the complex projects involving new products, I am not going to be satisfied with carrying out routine procedures under the direction of others. I want to be part of the team that directs the course of the project. My senior colleagues have encouraged my ambition and feel that I have the potential for continuing my graduate studies.
My love for accounting started during high school. My dad who was an accountant inspired me and it was he who helped me develop further interests in it. While I would struggle with my accounting assignments, he would help me solve the same with his practical accounting knowledge. He also encouraged me to go through the accounts in the annual reports of the companies for which he was a shareholder of. That is how I went ahead in this field to do a bachelor and later masters in accounting.

...Omar Hassan Principles of Management Professor Joe MArkert October 10, 2012 In the article “Objectives of an Organization” one can learn that a business or organization’s vision and mission plays a very important role in maintaining a consistently successful business. Workers of an organization and just people in general tend to lose track towards the path to success without a vision providing strategies for the future of a company. An organization that lacks this ingredient is likely to fail in achieving its goal. Therefore, It is very essential that the leader of an organization sets a well defined and reachable goal for which an organization could work towards achieving. With this being said, I feel that CEO’s/leaders truly have a very vital role in terms of setting the vision and mission for the organization ultimately building it into a stronger one. It doesn't just take any highly ranked manager to convey the vision/mission to the employees, but one that is cautious, aware, and very well understands the job enough to be able to clearly communicate to the employees so that they can appropriately work their part seriously. This technique can also help managers to guide worker’s behaviors. Relatively, I believe that setting such motivational and propelling guidance such as vision and mission to influence employees behaviors is crucial when trying to maintain a positive working atmosphere because it will drive workers into providing outstanding results. Thus, it......

Assess the Claim That There Are Objective Moral Statements

...An objective moral statement is a statement that has a definite truth-value; they are not subjective, even if you are not aware of whether or not a statement is true or false the fact of the matter is it is either one or the other. This is a cognitivist view, although there are many branches of cognitivism they all have one thing in common, they believe that moral statements express a genuine belief. Moral Realism is a cognitivist theory, they believe that all moral statements have a truth value and there are moral facts which determine that truth-value. Moral Realism is not to be confused with Universalism (the theory that there are absolute values) because a moral realist does not believe that a particular moral judgement has to apply to all situations. For example one could say objectively ‘abortion is wrong’ but in certain situations it is morally acceptable or right. So abortion could be viewed as wrong after a careless pregnancy where a man and woman do not use protection to prevent it, but still be viewed as an acceptable option for a rape victim who becomes pregnant. A moral realist would argue that this was a moral fact. However an opposing view to moral realism is the non-cognitivist view, Emotivism. Emotivists believe that when you are expressing a moral statement you are merely expressing an emotional response, this is different to expressing an emotional opinion. An opinion can either be true or false whereas an expression of emotion cannot be. For example, if......

Objectives Social responsibility - using resources more efficiently Curriculum Topics • Aims and objectives • SMART objectives • Strategy • Tactics Images supplied by Vismedia Introduction The challenge facing business and society in the 21st century is how to use resources more efficiently. Every business large or small needs to consider carefully: 1. how to reduce its use of energy 2. how to minimise waste. The central economic problem is how to match finite resources with unlimited wants. With the demand for resources rising as the world economy grows this is becoming more of a challenge. Leading global companies like Anglo American strive to find new solutions to this problem every day. Anglo American is one of the world’s largest mining companies. Its portfolio of mining businesses spans precious metals and minerals – in which it is a global leader in platinum and diamonds, base metals (copper and nickel) and bulk commodities (iron ore, metallurgical coal and thermal coal). The company’s mining operations and extensive pipeline of growth projects are located in southern Africa, South America, Australia, North America and Asia. The purpose of the organisation is set out in a mission statement. In 2008 there was a downturn in world economic activity. This resulted from a loss of confidence in the world financial system. The downturn led to a steep fall in commodity prices such as coal, copper and platinum. By late 2009 these prices started to......

...Project title: Project Nature: Environment Objective: The purpose of this project is based from what one of the barangays that we had talked to needed and that is cleaning materials like for example, trash bins. We chose Barangay Teresa as a community to help since we also noticed that there are only few trash bins around the area (especially along the street way to the main entrance gate of our campus) which is one source why the surroundings are so messy. We also would like to include having a seminar about what we had learned on our topic last CWTS 1 which is proper waste disposal.

Without understanding human behaviour it is very difficult to work in an organisation. In order to understand human behaviour let us see how the perception of human being has changed from time to time. All organisations are composed of individuals, with different personality, attitudes, values, perception, motives, aspirations and abilities. The main reason to understand behaviour is that individuals are different. No two individuals are similar.

Goals and Objectives

...Goals and Goals and Objectives Holly Regan HSM/240 February 9, 2014 Terra Harris Goals and Objectives There are six fundamental policy elements that are equally essential in the development and implementation of all social policies and two of them are goals and objectives. Although the two go hand in hand they often serve entirely different purposes within social programs and policies. Goals and objectives are not about delivering services, but about achieving a desirable outcome with the targeted social problem. The nature of goals is that they are quite general and abstract; therefore, they are not ordinarily intended to be directly measured. Objectives on the other hand, are intended to be measured and the implication is that, for goals, their clear definition is their most important attribute. The importance of objectives, on the other hand, is their concreteness, observability, (Chambers & Wedel, 2005). A goal is an abstract and general statement of desired outcomes. Goals are an answer to the questioning of program or policy purpose. An objective is a concrete, operational statement about a desired observable outcome. Goals and objectives which are manifest are evident, obvious, or apparent goals and objectives which are latent are present, but not visible, apparent or actualized, but still exists as potential. An agency’s or organizations statement of goals and objectives can be found through examination of statements in primary documents......

...Aims And Objectives Of Mcdonalds Aims & Objectives Why are Aims & Objectives important in a business? In a business when a number of brains are working together, there are always different views on a certain aspect, therefore aims and objectives are used to help them focus on one view on the aspect which either seems right or is right. Aims and Objectives help an organisation grow; it is used as a guideline, a plan and a goal. What the organisation is heading for and how it is heading there and where it is heading? All the answers for these questions are answered by Aims & Objectives. The Main Objectives of a Business are: - Sales – Sales revenue is the total amount of money a company has earned by providing their service or selling their stock. Growth – An increase in the Business capacity to produce more stock or provide better or greater service. Profit – Residual value gained from business operations after cutting out expenses such as stock cost etc. Customer Satisfaction – Providing service to customers to their satisfaction level such as hygienically clean place or high quality food. S M A R T Before a business can set objectives it is important that they follow the SMART criteria. • Specific – Detailed and Exact • Measurable – Targets should be measurable • Achievable – Something that can be achieved • Realistic – Targets must be realistic, so that they can be met • Time Specific – That can be achieved by a deadline Aims & Objectives of......

...time, or place (Sickels,1868). This allows for people to describe in detail what they see, whether it is a person, place, or thing. Second, is the sense of hearing. Hearing is the sense by which we distinguish sounds to allow us to hear conversations between individuals, music that is playing, and the sounds of everyday life (Sickels,1868). Both of which play a role when defining the main characteristics of objectivity, which goes unnoticed in everyday life. Objectivity is an important concept and practice that is used throughout most professions around the country. However it is most often used in the criminal justice profession. “More often than not, criminal justice professionals are writing reports and findings based on facts. Objective writing means that you are writing only what you observed as factual. When writing reports based on facts, it's important to exclude personal feelings or opinions on the issue. For example, if a police officer or probation officer is writing an incident report, they would not include their personal opinion on the subject's behavior” (Rasmussen,2014). It is not professional or ethical to include personal judgments or biases within an official report. In some cases, there may be a need to include a recommendation based on facts. When this is necessary, a professional opinion can be drawn, but only based on facts” (Rasmussen,2014). It is important in the criminal justice profession to use objectivity reporting because they want real......

...Chapter 3 Objectives 1. Describe receptors and ligand. Receptors are cell-associated proteins located at the surface that bind to ligand. The binding of a receptor and ligand induce changes in the receptor, which act to transmitted the ligand-binding signal into the interior of the cell and alter cellular functions such as proliferation, cell death, cell reproduction. 2. Explain the signal transduction pathway and their elements. Signal transduction pathway is the route by which ligand-receptor interaction is translated into biochemical change inside the cell. This process is initiated by the binding interaction of complementary ligand and receptor during sufficient time and strength that bring a biochemical change in the receptor. The upstream components consist of elements closest to the receptor. The downstream components are closest to the effector molecule. 3. Describe Immuno-receptor Tyrosine Activation Motif (ITAM) and list some of the molecules associated with B- and T- cell antigen receptors. The ITAM is a pair of long cytoplasmic tail that is found on signaling proteins within the immune system. It contains tyrosine that is phosphorylated after signal transduction of associated receptors. The phosphorylation of ITAM facilitated the initiation of signaling cascade. Other molecules associated with B and T cell antigen receptors are CD19 /CD20 on B cells that bind to complement molecules attached to antigens and CD4 and CD8 on T cells that bind...

...Objective As markets become more competitive many companies recognise the importance of retaining current customers and some have initiated a variety of activities to improve customer loyalty. Indeed, the benefits associated with customer loyalty are widely recognised within business. It is known that long-term customers are more likely to expand their relationship within the product range and so the rewards from this group are long term and cumulative. Another widely perceived benefit is that repeat or behaviourally loyal customers are also thought to act as information channels, informally linking networks of friends, relatives and other potential customers to the organisation. Much academic literature has sought to define customer loyalty and many of these reviews are discussed within this paper. However, consensus points to customer loyalty being characterised by the customer’s preference to purchase a product, service or from an organisation consistently when the need arises to purchase. The key issues of this characterisation are preference and consistency. The Discussion of Consumern Loyalty The most widely accepted definition of loyalty is by Jacoby and Kyner (1973), who describe loyalty as the biased, behavioural response, expressed over time, by some decision making unit, with respect to one or more alternative brands out of a set of such brands, and is a function of psychological processes. At a very general level, loyalty is something that consumers may......
