We constantly innovate our programmes to give students the competitive edge.

Students also have the opportunity to develop their communication, teamwork and decision making skills via business simulation activities, case studies and discussion forums.
We expose our students to the latest development in the business and profession by holding guest speakers sessions. Building on the research strength of the department, we encourage our students to consider accounting practices and its consequences in its wider socio-political context instead of treating it merely as a neutral technical exercise.
