Meet a Graduate

"When I completed my ACCA with Prague College (now PCU), I had the knowledge to work as an accounting or finance professional. However, in order not to limit my corporate career, I decided to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in International Finance and Business Accounting. In addition to studying at a well-reputed university, I was excited to study in Prague as it’s one of the most beautiful cities in Central Europe. Among all the important lessons offered at PCU, the ones that were most valuable for me were learning academic writing and improving time management practices. Currently I work as a Financial advisor at ProfiExpats and teach ACCA subjects at PCU. My degree has helped me understand how theoretical concepts apply to real-world practices and has also made my profile stronger and much more acceptable to corporate firms." Radhik Soni
