It is worth mentioning that this conference is one of BDO Jordan Academy’s endeavors to support the local and regional professional community with qualified staff and comes in line with BDO Jordan plans to spread the culture of professional certification and create awareness of the importance of such certificates in view of the high demand for certified professionals, especially auditors, at both the local, regional, and global levels.

The conference was concluded with a special gift from Surgent MENA for three of the Hashemite University students who received full scholarships, in addition to partial scholarships with a discount value of 50% for all students of the College of Business to obtain accredited accounting certificates.
