I studied Economics and Russian at university, but have used the Russian side of it in my career (and not in a business way).
I loved Accounting at school, but was put off pursuing it as a career as I hated the university teaching of the subject. I now see that what I was hoping to get from uni was what the AAT and ACCA qualifications actually give you - a proper training in accounting!
I now plan to do Levels 2 and 3 of AAT in (hopefully) one year. Then find a job in accounting while thinking of going on to do Level 4 of AAT and then start thinking about ACCA.
I know I could work as an accountant, as I truly love keeping books, accounts, etc. But two other areas I am interested in are: being a financial analyst or even a private banker (which often asks for Russian).
Can I ask: are the AAT and ACCA qualifications a good way, besides helping to secure an accountancy job, to approach becoming a finanical analyst or private banker? Or are there other courses which I would be better off doing if I ever wanted to work in these areas?
AAT then ACCA... route to financial analyst? private banker?
