Singapore is working towards a vision to make Singapore an accountancy hub by the year 2020. As the profession continues to grow, there will be an increasing demand for more qualified accountants.
The Bachelor of Accountancy programme offers an avenue for aspiring accountants and working adults to upgrade their accounting skills and knowledge so as to be able to join the ranks of the accountancy profession.
The Accountancy programme is designed with a balanced approach by providing students with strong academic and professional training in financial accounting, management accounting, assurance and taxation, while at the same time ensuring that they will also receive training in general business knowledge.
The programme is taught by faculty with globally recognised qualifications and extensive experience in academia and industry.
Care has been taken to ensure that the programme is industry relevant, from the appointment of industry leaders in our programme advisory panel, to the involvement of senior staff from accounting firms in the development and presentation of our courses.
As most students are also working professionals, the courses in the School of Business have been developed with an emphasis on work-based examples and industry linkages whenever possible. This may allow students to apply what they have learnt in their work domains after class. Courses are taught in small class sizes and use a seminar style approach to instill confidence in students during group and open discussions and to encourage effective communication for the students.
