'Sisu Nena' seminar highlights importance of CA Sri Lanka's globally recognized chartered accounting qualification

The importance of obtaining a globally recognized Chartered Accounting qualification offered by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) was underscored recently at a ‘Sisu Nena’ seminar which was held in Negombo for the benefit of students sitting for the Advanced Level examination.

In keeping with its role as the country’s national accounting body, CA Sri Lanka successfully spearheaded a series of seminars under its “Sisu Nena” programme in its continuing endeavor to enlighten and expand the knowledge of students in the commerce stream.

The seminar held at the Newstead Balika School in Negombo saw a massive participation of over 400 students who were provided with a thorough understanding on the importance of choosing a globally recognized professional qualification such as the course offered at CA Sri Lanka.

The seminar was a joint effort between CA Sri Lanka and Newstead Balika, Negombo and the students were addressed by chartered accountant Mr. Harendra Kariyawasam, who is also a Senior Lecturer, of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura while Mr. Nirmala Costa, ACA, conducted the career guidance session in parallel to the seminar.

Through the Sisu Nena seminar series, students are not only given the necessary psychological boost necessary to face the examinations with confidence but the seminars are also a platform to these students encouraging and edifying them to choose their line of profession wisely.

“Chartered accountants are one of the most sought after professionals both in Sri Lanka and abroad. In a history spanning over five decades, the qualification offered by CA Sri Lanka is recognized all over the world and as testament to this approximately 30 percent of our membership is serving in various capacities out of Sri Lanka,” CA Sri Lanka President Mr. Sujeewa Rajapakse said.

He added that through the education gained at the Institute, reaching the highest echelon in the corporate world was not an impossibility as an impressive number of chartered accountants today hold high-end positions in the corporate world in the capacity of CEO, CFO, Finance Director and Director, Managers and many other senior level positions in the management level.

Chief Executive Officer of CA Sri Lanka, Mr. Aruna Alwis noted that students should not waste their precious years in confusion but should instead consider a career path in the most sought after profession in the world today, which guarantees a job placement in any part of the world.
