Let me introduce myself. My name is… . I am a second-year student of Economics faculty of Biysk Technological Institute of the Altai Technical University. Our Institute provides a high quality education in a wide range of academic majors to thousands of students throughout our region. The institute attracts students and staff of the highest caliber. BTI offers a wide variety of programs ranging from introductory studies through full degree programs. Majors cover such areas as Computing and Information Systems, Electronics, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Machine-building Engineering, Accounting, Management, etc. Within each major there are dozens of different courses.
About 10 thousand enterprises and institutions have been registered in the city of Biysk. However their successful running is simply impossible without accounting and auditing. In fact, an accountant is considered to be a leading specialist at any enterprise. Therefore, the graduates in speciality Accounting and Auditing Science having higher education and a diploma of the state standard are practically in an unlimited demand. Accounting and analysis, control and inspection, auditing and consulting are just the main fields being dealt with by the graduates. Moreover the graduates of this speciality are able to handle closely-related problems of finance management, examination and consulting, taxation, property estimation, foreign economics, science and education.
In three years I’ll graduate from the Institute and become a professional economist. I’m sure that the profession of an economist is one of the most important nowadays in view of the situation in our country. An economist should have a thorough training in Economic Theory, Mathematics, Statistics, etc. So our Institute offers such training. During the course of study general and special subjects are taught. The general ones are History, Mathematics, Computer Science, Philosophy, Psychology, Foreign Language, Physical Education, etc. The special subjects are Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Management, Accounting, Marketing, Money and Banking, Economic Theory, Econometrics, Statistics, Finance Management, Insurance and Taxation.
The profession of an economist is quite diversified. The graduates of our faculty work at educational institutions, various research centers and laboratories, in industry, business, banks, etc. You may continue your education at the post-graduate studies if you have a desire and abilities to become a scientist in the field of Economics, create new theories and models, test hypotheses and carry out economic researches. Being employed in industry and business, our graduates work as managers, executive managers, sales managers and financial managers. Some of us work as accountants.
An accountant is one of the most prestigious and widely required professions in any society. You shouldn’t mix an accountant and a book-keeper. While a book-keeper is mostly involved in calculations, like balance sheets, income statements, invoices, an accountant is responsible for designing the financial policy of the company.
Some of us work at the banks, at the Stock Exchange as brokers. Others work for the Government or are employed by various agencies and by military services. Knowing the economic laws of the society’s development the economists can solve many problems facing our country and I hope I’ll manage to make my contribution to this process.
