CPA Australia, one of the world’s largest accounting bodies, has granted important exemptions to HELP’s Master of Accounting and Finance (MAF) program after an assessment of its syllabus.The decision was conveyed by CPA Australia’s Executive General Manager (Education) Mr Rob Thomason to Dr Yap Kim Len, Head of the Department of Accounting and Finance at HELP.
Mr Thomason concluded: “On behalf of CPA Australia, I look forward to working together and strengthening the relationship with your organisation.” HELP is a leader in Accounting and Finance programs at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and Dr Yap has been largely responsible for the successful growth of the MAF program. Congratulating Dr Yap on the achievement, HELP President and Vice-Chancellor Datuk Dr Paul Chan said the exemptions plus HELP’s appointment as the first CPA Training Center would help to enhance HELP’s position as a major player in this niche of the market.
