The study of Accounting is the study of a language that describes how capital is allocated and managed. In our increasingly globalized economy, this language of business is becoming even more important as capital flows across borders. The role of Accounting Executives is central in the management of business, assessment of performance, and reporting key data to investors, regulators and other members of the society. So, we are committed to pursue a continuous enhancement of our academic programs in order to keep succeeding our mission and to respond to the diversified challenge of our times.
