The topic of my internship report was ďRegional Treasury Operations: An Observation on Grameenphone Ltd. (Telenor)Ē. During my internship tenure at Grameenphone Ltd., I obtained hand on experience about the accounting works like daily recording of the transactions, bank reconciliation, cash flow statement and observed the applications of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system where I obtained knowledge about the automation of accounting data which can be referred as Accounting Information System (AIS).
Though I have studied Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Cost Accounting (Two Papers) and also Auditing, I am highly interested to pursue higher study focusing Managerial Accounting/Controlling where I can develop myself as a specialist. In Financial Accounting the accounting data are processed and presented through the financial statements. I believe that preparation of the financial statements solely does not help a company to perform in a correct manner until and unless there is no issue of proper decision making and controlling. Managerial Accounting aids the management with the right types of analysis and controlling tools. Furthermore, Managerial Accounting uses both qualitative and quantitative data to aid management with the decision making and controlling process. In a common manner, a company needs to prepare a budget analysing historical data and also according to short term plan. The company also needs to conduct variance analysis, ratio analysis etc. to control the variables thus to accomplish the short term plan.
Referring to my utmost interest in Managerial Accounting/Controlling, I am interested to pursue a career oriented Master program outside Bangladesh as there is no scope of pursuing such program. By obtaining Master of Arts in Accounting and Controlling, focusing on Managerial Accounting/Controlling; I will gain specialised skills and knowledge by attending interactive lectures, seminars and work experience placement which in turn will help me to develop creative solution accompanying operative and strategic measures pursuant to specific goals. Thus I would like to build myself as an accounting and controlling specialist in consulting/auditing firms or in international firms.
Being the capital city of Germany, Berlin's economy is dominated by the service sector with around 80% of all companies doing business in services. Many German and international companies have business or service centres in the city. So, there is a fair chance of obtaining professional experience in my field of interest. Furthermore, by completing Master of Arts in Accounting and Controlling from your reputed university, I would like to help the institutions situated in my beloved country Bangladesh with my gained skills and knowledge thus to help the economy even in the macro level.
