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.
Graduates can expect to take up junior positions in professional accounting firms and in business or government operations such as audit and taxation trainees, management trainees and executive officers. They are able to perform with short learning curves in the workplace and understand the strategic roles of business with managerial perspectives. After gaining sufficient work experience, they are ready for progression to managerial roles in their fields as accountants or department managers.
The Programme is accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) and CPA Australia. After completion of the programme, graduates will be granted partial exemptions from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (HKICS).
