Accounting degree program is one of the best routes to a successful business and rewarding professional career. Accounting has always been considered as the language and basic management tool of business. Business is concerned about performance and accounting students are professionally trained to do more than that.

Over the last two decades, the business world has changed dramatically from deregulation of Government policies that propel cross-border investments to paperless transactions and convergence of accounting reporting standards. The field of accounting has been responding to the changes that a traditional accountant has never experience before. In this new competitive and international business environment, accounting skills are very much in global demand and accounting has become a highly mobile career with endless job opportunities and career advancements.

Accountants have shed their stodgy image of green eyeshade's and thick glasses to assume the more prestigious global role of international financial experts, system professionals, management consultants, budget analysts, etc. More accountants are needed for Malaysia to achieve Vision 2020 and be known as a high-income nation but currently, we have only about 30,000 qualified accountants.

Your educational journey has been meticulously designed to unlock full potential towards pursuing professional certification and undergraduate studies. All these and much more in unique education package inclusive of a vibrant university life in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
