Aims and Characteristics


Programme Aims

This programme familiarises students with contemporary and up-to-date accounting knowledge and issues. It aims to build up their accounting knowledge base, enabling them to develop sound analytical skills and judgement, and make efficient and effective business decisions.


This is a flexible specialist programme providing a progressive and deepening understanding of major accounting issues for accounting practitioners and executives. The focus is on real world-related and contemporary academic studies, and practical applications. Two of the key elements are PRC accounting and the contemporary application of information systems in accounting.


In 1999, the University had reached a training and research collaboration agreement with the National Audit Office (NAO) on the Chinese mainland. Academic training at a master’s level will be provided to NAO employees in Hong Kong. Since the 2001/02 academic year, a limited number of suitable NAO employees have enrolled into the programme each year.

Message from Alumni

This programme enabled me to learn theoretical knowledge as well as gain practical skills and deep insights about accountancy. The comprehensive curriculum has been designed for both fresh graduates and experienced practitioners.



Students acquire knowledge, so the knowledge has to be updated. But more importantly, knowledge combined with skills increased our practical ability and helped us to make better decisions. That was how I benefited from this programme.
