Dr Nitham Hindi, dean at Qatar University’s College of Business and Economics, has said the country needs more than 9,000 accountants in the next five years, local Arabic daily Al Sharq has reported.
Stressing the need for qualified accountants, he said the number of accountants graduating annually is less than 100, the report states.
In a meeting organised by the accounting and information systems section of the College, Dr Hindi encouraged students to join the Master’s programme in accounting, saying it has obtained US accreditation and will open up good job opportunities and lead to a bright future, according to the report.
Further, Dr Hindi said the university offers support to all students who enrol in the programme. He also spoke about the requirements and conditions for enrolment, the report adds.
Other experts, too, have highlighted Qatar’s need for accountants to work in different institutions of the State, stating that the Master’s programme will help find qualified accountants through theoretical studies and field training, besides fulfilling the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030.
