How Important are Practical Skills?

What is most important for a Finance/ Accounting student?
Knowledge of Theoretical concepts or knowledge of how to apply this theory into practice?

In today’s world, learning how to implement the theory is a biggest challenge for any student. This goes for an accounting student as well. A commerce student learns all about the theoretical aspects of Accounting in the class room but later on when he/ she takes up a job it will be a biggest challenge for him/ her to link whatever he/ she has learned to practical scenarios.

FAME Training Institute focuses on this aspect of Practical Accounting. FAME bridges the gap between the theoretical understanding and knowledge given by the schools/ colleges with the practical need of business in terms of accounting using software’s in business environment.
