A warm South African welcome to the 2021 Accounting Professions Day. This event comes amid difficult times affecting the global community in which South Africa has not been spared. As a School, we endeavour to fulfil our primary objective and mission, which is to train and develop professionals to service both the public and private sectors in this ever-changing socio-economic environment. In this regard, the Accounting programmes remain the pillar and flagship of the school, with various channels leading to the Accounting profession. We are grateful for the continued support of the day from employers of our graduates. Showcasing the Accounting careers to both registered students and potential students plays a critical role in the development of future accountants to serve the nation and the global community. We wish the firms and all organizations that are participating in this event every success in engaging with the University community through the virtual platform. Once again, thank you!
