Thank you for visiting the FLM and Department of Finance and Accounting webpage. The financial services sector has become an important pillar of our economy. In response to increasing industry demand for skills and expertise in finance and accounting, the department, as at date, offers 7 undergraduate programmes - three programmes in accounting and four programmes in finance - and 3 post graduate programmes in finance and financial management.
To meet the needs of both our students and employers, the department spares no effort in developing a teaching environment and nurturing a buoyant research culture which not only imparts technical knowledge but also critical thinking and communication skills which we believe are instrumental in sustaining the employability of our accounting and finance graduates. Employers are quasi-shareholders of tertiary education institutions and harnessing long-lasting links with industry and conducting collaborative research with industry is central to the mission of the department. Our proximity with industry together with the relevance of our programmes is evidenced by the heavy student demand for accounting and finance programmes and the significant number of exemptions which our accredited accounting programmes enjoy with ACCA and ICAEW.
