Orientation Day - What is Accounting?
1 March 2022
New and returning members were excited to attend Beta Alpha Psi - Xi Epsilon's 2022 orientation event. This year, we participated in engaging workshops focused on skills that graduates must have to be successful future professionals. We discussed the importance of developing key professional competency areas including intellectual thought, interpersonal skills and ethical leadership.
During the first workshop, we were joined by Professor Gary Carnegie who shared his understanding on what accounting is today. We tackled key issues including the restrictiveness of conventional accounting definitions, and how accounting can only achieve its full potential when conducted in a way that benefits organisations, people and nature.
Daniela Juric then led a second case study that focused on the role non-financial information has in the accounting practice. Members had the opportunity to collaborate with each other and discuss innovative solutions to complex social issues relating to the disclosure of accounting information in the IVF industry.
Thank you to all speakers and attendees including Beta Alpha Psi - University of Melbourne Chapter, Beta Alpha Psi - The University of Auckland Chapter and Beta Alpha Psi - The University of Waikato Chapter for an engaging and successful event. We are very excited for 2022!
