Course Details:

Accounting is concerned with the measurement, reporting and evaluation of information, including computerised information, which assists in the management of resources in business entities and government organisations.

This programme prepares students to become professional accountants. It covers theoretical and conceptual accounting matters combined with the basic accounting skills needed to make graduates employable.

The curriculum has been designed to satisfy the requirements of professional accounting bodies like CPA Australia, ACCA, ICAEW, MICPA, CIMA, MIA and many others where full exemptions can be obtained. At the same time, the curriculum provides a student with a broad-based education, thus enabling success in the highly competitive work environment.

Furthermore, top accounting professionals from the Big 4 accounting firms are invited to participate in teaching as adjunct staff. They will bring real world perspectives into the classroom setting.
