Programme Aims
This programme aims to equip students with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in professional accounting that will prepare them to become competent accountants after graduation, and to ultimately be able to assume managerial roles in professional accounting and related practices.  Students will be trained in the areas of accounting, finance, or corporate governance in a local, national or global context.  The programme also develops students with professional knowledge in accounting and management of corporate financial resources to meet the emerging needs in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
