MAHSA University’s Bachelor of Accounting is a 3-year, highly specialised undergraduate degree programme that qualifies its graduates as accountants upon registration with the Malaysian Institute of Accountants.
Graduates have a choice of going into direct practice either in the public or private sector, or go on to pursue professional accountant certifications such as the CPA (Certified Public Accountant), the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), and CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), while meeting work requirements doing training at accounting firms. Accountants are some of the most highly esteemed professionals whose elite place in society has never been challenged.
Because our curriculum is designed with a team from employers, industry experts, and academia, students will learn theories combined with hands-on applications and practical skills. These skills of researching and critical thinking, reading and analysing financial statements, creating reports and presentations and interacting with stakeholders, will enable students to be employed right away.
During the duration of the programme, students will explore various depths and breadths of cost accounting, financial accounting, managerial accounting, corporate accounting, accounting information systems, auditing and assurance, international financial reporting standards (IFRS), generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), stakeholder values and ethics, issues in financial reporting, information technology for accountants, quantitative methods, corporate finance, organisational behaviour, business economics, business law, company and association law, taxation law and practices, financial statements and investment analysis, cost management, innovation and entrepreneurship, and advanced business communication.
When students graduate, they will be full-fledged accounting graduates, ready and able to correctly and effectively prepare profit and loss statements for business entities; establish accounting practices and procedures for start-up companies and provide sound advice on the management of these; analyse budgets and other financial information and offer advice on how costs can be reduced and savings maximised; produce budgets for businesses and implement strategies for minimising costs; maintain accurate and timely records of company accounts; improve business efficiency in finances; compute statements of taxes owed, prepare tax returns and ensure that they are filed correctly and that payment is made on time; and ensure compliance with laws and regulations.
Because an accountant’s work is no easy task, MAHSA’s Bachelor of Accounting with Honours, will ensure that its graduates are fully equipped with all necessary knowledge that is expected of a professional accountant.
The Bachelor of Accounting (Hons) programme is recognised by CPA Australia.
