Project Details

Technology has changed the way how accounting services are being conducted and delivered. The School of Accounting and Finance of PolyU has taken the lead to integrate latest technological knowledge related to accounting into our BBA (Hons) in Accountancy and BBA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance curricula. We are supported by the Big 4 accounting firms in pursuing this initiative. Fintech topics including big data, AI, and regtech will be integrated into relevant subjects in our BBA programs in Accounting and Finance.

An Accounting Education x TECH Symposium will be organized for internal staff to showcase these Fintech concepts. External advisors from Big 4 will pair up with internal teaching staff for each subject and give direction to the full preparation of tech concepts, which will be integrated into the syllabi and lectures. The advisors and teaching staff will then disseminate these concepts to our students in 2019. We thank the following external advisors for their support.
