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 shortly 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, and corporate governance in a local, national or global context. The programme also develops students' sensitivity and creativity in accounting and management of corporate financial resources to meet the needs and development of the business environment in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
Graduates can expect to take up entry-level positions in professional accounting firms and in business or government operations such as audit and taxation trainees, management trainees and accounting officers. They are able to perform with short learning curves in the workplace and understand the strategic roles of business from managerial perspectives. After gaining sufficient work experience, they will be ready for further progression to managerial roles in their fields as accountants or department managers.
