    Hi Amanda, very great video and lots of tools to know. I just completed my CPA Australia Program. It is currently promoting Micro-credentials, one of the subjects is data analytics. Do you reckon that I should study the course for the Micro-credentials provided from CPA or just check the free resources kindly provided from your video? Thank you so much.

    Thank you for posting this! I have an English degree from Spelman College and wanting to definitely get into something more analytical…I am utilizing LinkedIn Learning until I can start pursuing community college certificates in the US for accounting and take the CPA exams. My question I have for you is: if I do not have any experience in accounting, can gaining LinkedIn Learning certificates in Excel and Accounting help me in land an entry level role in the accounting field, and will learning data analytics help bolster my resume? Thank you for the advice in the video also; so excited there's virtual opportunities like this.

    hi amanda your video was very helpful. I'm a CA finalist and have learnt python mysql tableau machine learning but not able to get any internship that is a combination of accounts/audit/tax and data analytics/machine learning domain
    Can you suggest same
    Thanks in advance

    Thank you for sharing. I have already started learning Data Analytics on my own but for a different reason.

    I am age 35 International (Black American) student at a UK University, my degree programme is BSc Accounting and Finance. I actually wanted originally to have my next career as a Forensics Accountant with a focus in Audit but I got discouraged because I have been struggling with my University studies.

    So I started learning coding mostly on my own while I study and practice understanding more of my University studies. As a coding beginner, I want my next career to be Data Engineer.

    But recently I have been learning that Accounting involves a lot of Data Analytics through webinars and now watching your video.

    So I see that what I started to invest in myself with is greatly going to help me in my next career(s). I will look again possibly to become a Forensics Accountant in my future after I graduate from University next year.

    Hi Amanda, you've been in the CA industry for quite some time… other then data analytics, which other skills and courses have u seen being taken or feel serve some value in improving ones skills and and helping to branch out beyond audit and tax?

    Could you perhaps create a video on what you've seen CAs do beyond audit?😊

    Hello Amanda. I'm considering going for my Master's next year and I'm looking at 3 courses;
    Digital Innovation, International Accounting and Analytics and Mngt Information & Managerial Accounting Systems.

    I have a BSc in Accounting already, and I want to combine Accounting with Tech, hence the reason I'm considering those courses.

    I'll really like to know what you think about my choice, and get some professional advice as well.
    Thank you.

    Love your videos but I regret doing accounting and I highly recommend international students in Australia not to do accounting. Almost no one will hire you. I'm in my final year, HD average and I'm not even able to secure an internship even though I'm ready to work for free. The biggest regret of my life is ACCOUNTING degree in Australia πŸ™

    Hello Ma'am, I have just started my course in Data Analytics and I am CA final student. Since Data analytics and Data Science course has 75% same content. I want to know which certification is beneficial for me ?
    Thanks in advance.
    You are a great teacher.

    Ma'am , i request you bowing down to earth , please make more videos , regarding this " computer science " intervention in accounting and finance . I am currently pursuing Chartered Accountancy in india , got finals in May . I sometimes get tensed about whether i will be relevant 5-10 years down the line or not . I want to upskill but its confusing as to which specific language or course or what should be the direction of venturing into these computer sciences . I have been into internal audit in my 3 year articleship . I also have confusion as to how to choose a career line between audit and finance and pure accounts . I seem to be interested in all 3 of them . Thanks for this vid though .

    Hi Amanda.

    Thank you for this and for your channel.

    Your videos really helped me a lot a few years ago when I was studying my post grad. I am now qualified (CA(SA)) and I can't agree with you more.

    Since I finished my articles, I've moved into a Sales Analyst type of role rather than a more traditional Financial Manager/Controller Role and data analytics (mostly on Excel but also through a tool called Qlikview) have become part of my daily work.

    It's a really exciting time to be a CA. The roles we occupy are changing and our opportunities to add value are real and substantial.

    If I may add one thing, perhaps stating the obvious but, what I have found with analytics is that you only see the true strength of a tool when you need to solve complex problems with it. Learning about analytics is like filling a toolbox – the more tools you have the easier it is to solve more complex problems.

    Thank you again.

    Best regards,
    David
