ACCA’s 7 Quotients for Success

Accounting and finance professionals have long been respected for their business insights, ethical grounding and ability to contribute to the growth of organisations. To cope with the rapid changes in modern day business, rising expectations and globalisation, professional accountants of the future will need to add further value to their employers and clients through a range of competencies which include not just technical knowledge and skills but also interpersonal behaviours and leadership.
