For the past two decades, CamEd Business School has produced some of the brightest graduates for the growing Cambodian financial sector.
Its founder and president, Casey Barnett, had a vision of transforming CamEd into a prominent business school, one developing a community of accounting and finance professionals who perform on par with those in international financial centres, something that is now a reality.
Today, the private business school has built a strong reputation in producing top-notch accounting and financial experts – many of whom have landed lucrative jobs in the Kingdom’s competitive banking and financial industry.
“The quality of our students is recognised by international auditing companies such as PwC, KPMG, Ernst & Young and Deloitte. Our academic staff comprises qualified international professors and lecturers. We also use advanced educational technologies and systems,” said CamEd’s senior vice-president Sam Sokuntheary.
CamEd provides one of the world’s most highly recognised courses – the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) – a qualification highly sought after by employers – and the Certificate in Accounting Technician, an equally distinguished course that imparts accounting skills.
“Students should join these courses because professional accountants, auditors, tax auditors, and tax consultants with qualified knowledge and experience are highly needed by the private and public sector,” said Sokuntheary.
CamEd is also a stepping stone for idealistic future entrepreneurs, which is something Darith Khun – a CamEd ACCA graduate and currently a managing partner at K Professional Accountants – will certainly vouch for.
“Starting my journey with ACCA years ago was the wisest decision I have ever made – I will never be able to articulate fully how much ACCA has shaped both my professional and personal life,” Khun said.
With an ACCA qualification behind him and backed by a top performance track record, Darith was appointed to provide oversight and support for many countries in Asia and Africa on country financial management, audit and risk management, internal control and governance.
“ACCA has given me the confidence I need to tackle all professional challenges. I am certain that it continues to equip me with the necessary skills and expertise to overcome all challenges in the current uncertain global economy to forge a better future.
“It also furnished me with three important elements to become a highly recognised professional accountant. ACCA has moulded me into becoming a valuable asset for my country by equipping me with comprehensive technical knowledge and strong English comprehension, and by imparting a code of ethics and conduct,” said Khun.
CamEd is a university officially affiliated with the US-based Chartered Financial Analyst Institute – which is another major achievement for the institution.
CamEd’s qualifications are designed to ensure that every graduate receives all the competencies and skills needed to work in a wide variety of organisations and roles.
