Accountancy is a profession in transition. The traditional skills necessary to flourish as an accountant – namely the ability to help clients minimise tax and balance the books – are slipping somewhat by the wayside thanks to the emergence of dedicated and powerful computer software. The vocation, which has in the past been resilient through decades of industrial, political and societal change, is now going through an almighty evolution.

However, with great change comes great opportunity, and the current crop of newly qualified accountants are blessed with the chance to shape the future of a sector that will, in all likelihood, play an increasingly essential role in helping businesses and individuals make their hard-earned money go further.

Accountants have often suffered from the stereotype of being stuffy introverts, but that’s by no means the label the accountants of the future will be plastered with; dynamism, energy and the ability to provide top-notch financial advice will be the attributes required by the next generation of accountants, with extroverts likely to thrive in this more hands-on, interactive and collaborative environment: offering a personal touch is going to become ever more important.

Not only will being a people person become even more necessary for accountants in the years to come but so will being adept at utilising advanced computer software, particularly that which harnesses cloud technology. Being able to work on a document that can be sent, assessed and modified by client and accountant alike in the space of a few seconds is just one reason why working with a keyboard and mouse rather than old-school pen and paper is an accounting must.

Before the startup dream, gain practical HND Business knowledge

As startup culture continues to thrive around London’s Silicon Roundabout, more and more young entrepreneurs are thinking about rushing their cool idea to market. However, be warned that without a basic understanding of business fundamentals, your distributed, cloud-based, crowdfunded, the high-technology dream will likely remain just that.

Even if your business plan is as prosaic as something like a better cleaning or services company, learning the business ropes before you rush into founding a company will give your concept a better foundation. An HND in Business can provide a key overview and insights into the many roles that a startup will need. From business development, human resources, hiring your first staff and administration, understanding marketing, along with the basics of finance and business law, a good grasp of everything we offer will help your company go a long way.

We provide a practical grounding, as well as the theory to ensure your course provides you with the skills to succeed in the real world. Whatever your previous experience or education, a top up degree business management at Mont Rose College should provide you with fantastic preparation for your business adventure. As a higher education provider, based in Ilford, Greater London, our popular courses should put you in touch with people at the same level of drive and ambition, who may prove useful allies, colleagues or advisors as you commence on any startup business or project.

While most startup investors, especially American ones, expect founders to have an MBA or engineering degree, in the UK passion and a product are seen as a base starting point. Still, having a basic business knowledge and demonstrating that you are keen to educate yourself will stand you in good stead, and provide a great practical advantage when it comes to finding funding.

At Mont Rose College we provide both the knowledge and the social fabric that could help turn your business into a successful idea. Even if you don’t have a dream yet, studying here and with access to the great startup heart of London at Tech City and Silicon Roundabout could help find you a team to work with or other founders to get started on a project. Or, if you just want a way to get into an existing company, aHND Business Marketing will demonstrate a keen understanding of modern methods and help you gain an advantage when interviewing for any number of management, marketing, accounting, finance or other roles.
