Nabil Ashraf Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) 2013Tilinormit Oy, Trainee Accountant Currently I am working as trainee accountant in Tilinormit Oy. I look after different companies financial situations; how they run, how much money they are making, profit margins, financial plans of the company etc. Having learned these subjects helps me to understand different types of businesses in the market. Besides, I have to keep eye on Finnish company & tax legislation for proper finance handling of business depending on company type & its position. For example, privately owned company accounting is different from public limited company (partnership) accounting. In the business, finance attracts me more than marketing or management. In fact, finance is one of the most important keys of business driving the profitability. Hence, at my work I get to learn the financial situation of different companies which will hopefully be helpful in my future career planning. I think that at my current position I make lots of contacts in different finance sectors which benefit me most at my career. For example, bank managers, insurance agents & some big investors (in case I get some business ideas someday ;) I have already been working in professional finance for last few years and gradually getting more experience which is obviously broadening my practical know-how in real life business. I would like to develop my finance and marketing strategy of business organization in the future. From 2008 till 2012 I lived the most memorable studentship in my life at Karelia UAS.
