KASNEB to include digital assets in its syllabus
The accountants’ examination body of Kenya KASNEB has announced proposed changes to its syllabus. The move has been made in an attempt to keep up with the fast changing technological world.
One of the major reviews to the syllabus is the inclusion of content on digital assets such as crypto currencies, block chain technology, and initial coin offerings. The exam body plans to equip accounting professionals with necessary skills in emerging Financial technology.
The organization also plans to change the training material to include the newly adopted accounting standards that came to effect on 1st January 2019.
KASNEB also plans to apply a more practical approach to its exams by using case studies in the governance and ethics, and International Finance papers.
Additionally, the exam body aims to involve professional associations such as the Law of Kenya, Fund Managers Association, and ICIFA in developing the syllabus as well as train them. This will ensure that the content is fit for the professional world.
