Revision -och redovisningsbranschen : Hur väl sammanfaller utbildningskraven med arbetsmarknadens krav
Abstract (Summary)This essay depicts the subject of educating personnel, an occurrence which stretches back a long period of time and has continuously been retold in the form of teaching. This has naturally affected several classes of education throughout countless organisations. The essay specifically describes accounts and the nature of the financial profession which is a field greatly focusing on educating personnel.The main purpose with this study is to gather information regarding the needs of the financial companies in terms of qualifications among the new graduates. Simultaneously find out whether or not the competence among the new graduates matches the requirements of the company. The secondary purpose is also to gather insight of the student's understanding of the education in question.The authors have chose to use both a qualitative and quantitative approach. The qualitative consists of three interviews with three different financial companies, KPMG, Öhrling Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Linderberg Grant Thorton. The quantitative approach, on the other hand, consists of a "limited attitude study", where ten new graduates participated in a poll regarding their understanding of the organisation in question.The conclusions in the essay shows that the financial companies are looking for different qualifications among the new graduates, and that when initiating employment a match of these qualifications generates the best result possible. The most important qualification is the social capability that reflects the true self of the individual and is crucial to the career development. Another imperative factor to the social capability is the ability to cooperate, where the employees constantly work in groups and even more importantly the cooperation with the customer. Another qualification is the personal competence where ethics, moral and values with employee are highly prioritised. Strategic competence, meaning that the new employee is to be in agreement with the organisation in terms of content and goals. The last qualification is to have competence included in the account and finance educations, both designed by the accounting committee and FAR SRS.The second part of the essay describes the students' personal understanding about the education in question, where the majority of the subjects are relatively positive towards the organisation and consider themselves pleased with the balance between theory and practice.
