Accounting, a “Recession-Proof Profession”

Accounting is one of the most indispensable skill sets and considered as a recession-proof profession, as industries and businesses require high level accounting skills to provide accurate financial information for decision-making. According to the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA), the country intends to increase the number of accounting professionals by over 80% in the coming years, as part of the profession’s contribution to the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
