This should partly resolve the problems associated with the placement of partly qualified candidates in industry and on other programmes. • A more rational, easy-to-fit and implement, graduate conversion and exemption scheme has been incorporated. It is hoped that this will motivate higher grade candidate entrants—degree and diploma holders —to acquire sufficient accountancy competence and speed up their eventual professional qualification. • All students have ten (10) years from the date of registration within which to complete all the examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (Ghana). After the ten (10) years period any student who has not completed the examinations of the Institute will not be eligible to take the examinations. • Better focus on business [financial] strategy and reporting or communication skills, thereby enabling candidates to appreciate the overall realities of the business environment and to use advisory skills more effectively. • Introduction of some more relevant programmes and appropriate titles — the New Business Strategy is more about management, making accountants strategic decisions makers. • Increased emphasis on business advisory skills at the final Part 4.
