Course content

The Master of Science in Accounting Program (MSAC) is a one-year full-time program that aims at providing postgraduate accounting education to students with bachelor degrees in business and non-business disciplines, and bridges them with a channel to enter accounting-related professions.

The program is both practical and academically rigorous. It intends to groom “thinking” professional accountants at postgraduate level and educate them to become successful business professionals across different business functions, such as accounting, finance, treasury, taxation, auditing, business consulting, and corporate strategic planning. The program will further promote the collaborations and connections with the professional community, e.g., CPA firms and other corporations.

Students will be provided with specialised knowledge in accounting which will enable them to enter the HKICPA QP, as well as related fields of finance, information systems, international business and investment so that graduates can make a significant contribution to the functioning and development of their employing organizations.

Students are required to complete a minimum of 15 courses (30 credits) of coursework in order to graduate, including 9 core courses (18 credits) and 6 elective courses (12 credits).
