Career Path of Graduates
The BBA(Acc&Fin) programme is accredited as an approved accountancy programme under the Professional Accreditation System of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA). Graduates are recognised by the HKICPA as accountancy degree graduates and as having fulfilled the stipulated pre-entry education requirement. They can qualify as professional accountants by successfully completing the HKICPA Qualification Programme (QP) and obtaining the relevant working experience.
Graduates of the BBA(Acc&Fin) programme are also eligible to obtain maximum exemptions from professional examinations organised by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) so that they need to take only five papers. They can qualify as members of the ACCA by successfully completing the examinations and obtaining relevant working experience. Similarly, paper exemptions have also be granted by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). According to our surveys, the graduates have been very successful in finding employment. A substantial number are employed in the accounting field including by the Big Four. We believe their success reflects the high quality of students we have admitted and the value we add through the education process. The buoyant market for accounting graduates in Hong Kong and Mainland China is also a factor. Within 5 months of their graduation, 100% of our graduates have been able to secure employment. Some of our alumni are partners of multinational and regional accounting firms while others graduates are CEOs, CFOs or controllers of multinational and local business organisations. Several our graduates are also holding senior administrative positions as the Hong Kong government officer.
