What will I learn?

The MSc Accountancy (MSc Acc) programme leverages on the School's long tradition and track record of more than 50 years in training executives in accounting and finance-related fields for leadership roles in Singapore and beyond. Each year, we admit two cohorts of around 40 students each with keen interest and enthusiasm to deepen their skills and knowledge in accounting, and to advance their career in this field.

Our comprehensive curriculum which includes Data Analytics and Digital Forensic ensures our participants are equipped with holistic skill sets to take on the challenges and succeed in the fast evolving accounting landscape. The courses are taught by our senior faculty and selected courses are co-taught with the Big Four partners for added industry relevance.

The MSc Acc programme is accredited by the SAC to qualify for the Singapore CA Qualification and Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA).​ Graduates from the programme can advance directly to the Professional Programme of the Singapore CA Qualification. The School’s strong connections with international accounting bodies such as ICAEW, CPA Australia, ACCA, CIMA, to name a few, allows our graduates to fast track their professional accounting qualification journey.
