The accountancy profession is going through a period of significant change as technological advances (such as automation and artificial intelligence) continue to offer opportunities for new ways of working. At the same time, the role of audit, which is fundamental to the work of many of ICAS’ members is under intense scrutiny. ICAS, as an organisation along with many other interested participants, are engaged in consultations ensuring that the audit itself is fit for the future.

This tangible success will help ICAS stay ahead of the curve and educate aspirant business leaders on the constant evolution of technology. The course will provide students with an understanding of emerging technologies and how becoming commercially savvy and familiar in data and risk management will truly impact business performance and decision making.
