Course overview
The accusation is often made that accounting professionals struggle with the skill of critical thinking. One can offer ‘lack of experience’ as a reason for the inability to apply critical thinking skills, but that explanation only goes so far… Can accountants really think critically, and uncover the essence of significant and material issues in a business?
