My name is Satinder _________ and I am an MSc International Accounting and Financial Studies student at the University of Glasgow. This highly respected accredited postgraduate degree is based within one of the longest established accounting departments in the UK. The Department was ranked 1st in Scotland and 5th in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
My current interests include international business and management accounting. I am particularly interested in the way in which a detailed understanding of cost and budgeting is integral to all effective management decisions. I am also extremely interested in the ways in which businesses operate within an international environment and, in particular, the role and function of multinational corporations.
In my future career I hope to be able to use my highly developed language skills to secure employment as a Chartered Management Accountant in an international firm. I would be particularly keen to specialise in the area of corporate finance in a large international firm with the opportunity for travel.
In 2006 I completed a 3 month summer placement with Godfrey Stern International in Hong Kong in their product control section. I have recently been accepted on to KPMG's 8-week paid summer placement scheme which will take place between July and August 2010. This placement will be within their Tax and Pensions practice.
