This week, we chatted with Egidie, to learn more about her career aspirations and why she joined the African Accounting Academy. Egidie’s was referred to the African Accounting Academy through a friend, who was a member of our first graduating class. It’s great to see our network expand through positive word of mouth!
Haystack: What university do you go and what is your major?
Egidie: I graduated from the National University of Rwanda in 2010, with a major in International Economics.
Haystack: Why did you join the African Accounting Academy?
Egidie: Although I performed well in accounting courses I did, it was not my major subject. It’s been a long time since l graduated l have forgotten a lot of my accounting knowledge. As I am jobless l need to refresh my knowledge and to be skilled in practical, actual, useful accounting practices in order to expand my job search. I think the African Accounting Academy course will meet my needs to understand accounting as it actually happens in a business. The way the course is structured allows easy and practical learning.
Haystack: What is one thing you want to learn from the program?
Egidie: QuickBooks and Excel skills are things I want to lean from the program, and I’m confident I’ll perform well in these after the course!
Haystack: What are your career aspirations?
Egidie: I hope to became a successfully certified accountant, analyst and a monitor in NGOS.
