CAS Certificate of Advanced Studies International Financial Accounting Understanding Business Transactions and Mastering Accounting Standards: Your Route to the Top! “Very few students ask their career advisors “What courses should I take if I want to become a Chief Executive?” According to the latest analysis of the FTSE 100 by Robert Half, a career in accounting and finance, above others, could be the best way to ‘fast track’ to the top jobs in UK business. Over three quarters of newly appointed FTSE 100 CEOs have strong financial experience 1 .” This CAS is designed to put you on the ‘fast track’ to the top jobs.
