1.The future accountant will be somebody who is able to marry accounting and programming. You will therefore require a mix of accounting and programming (IT).

2. The future accountant should not be one sided but should have the working knowledge of general management

The future accountant needs to have a good degree of digital literacy. The question is whether they need to be computer scientists or not?

Nirishi Trikamjee

The future accountant will need to be more of a generalist with strong business acumen. Technical accounting will be there but for a few only as experts. Digital and big data will need to be interpreted and the accountant will be that interpreter but moreover the problem solver. In fact, he/she will need many ‘engineering’ type skills

My mind refuses to see CAs as accountants. I think they are more than that. We are designed to lead in business. A future CA who does not have business ethics and acumen will be left behind. I feel we need more of enabling competencies such as genuine empathy. Technical skills will always be the foundation of these skills, but will not be required more than the enabling skills.

I think the Accounting profession will be more in demand in the near future, because every company needs an accountant.
