The decision making and money handling involvedgives an element of unpredictability, an area that I would like to learn moreabout and hopefully discover a method which could perhaps help control thatunpredictability. Looking for solutions to the complex relationships ofaccounting and businesses is something I find very rewarding as well asintriguing; it is an area I hope to be able to study in more depth as a masterstudent.My workingexperience in a food and beverages firm in Nigeria with my first accountingdegree, as an auditor officer with the responsibilities of auditing financialreport, procurement and other financial transactions really exposed me to thedamages wrong accounting could do in an organization and also provided me withhow accounting could enhances achieving strategic vision of an organization.This experience really equipped me with the financial reporting skills, riskcontrol, auditing, leadership, communication and above all how to be a teamplayer.
