In the 21st century professionals and entrepreneurs need to be multi-skilled to survive in a rapidly changing, competitive, and multidimensional global market. At the heart of these challenges are making accounting and financial decisions amidst complex global markets. As the Global Financial Crisis has shown without high levels of accounting knowledge and an understanding of a variety of financial instruments, business failures and corporate collapses are real possibilities. Therefore, it is important for business executives and managers to be well versed in both accounting and finance matters.

The Master of Science in Applied Accounting and Finance (MScAAF) is a programme aimed at nurturing future business leaders with the right expertise to meet these challenges. The curriculum is designed to equip graduates with knowledge and skills ranging from accounting, finance to regulatory compliance. It also provides flexibility with the options of completing the programme in one-year full-time mode (3 trimesters, 2 to 4 courses in each trimester) or one and half-year part-time mode (5 trimesters, 2 courses in each trimester).

So if you are looking for a career in accounting and finance or to upgrade your skill sets to meet the challenges of a complex and ever changing global financial environment I invite you to choose HKBU’s MScAAF.
