Program Description

Master of Accountancy

The Chinese University of Hong Kong, CUHK Business School

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) Program has enjoyed a strong reputation as a highly-respected program since its launch in 1998. In 2008, the Program curriculum was re-designed to also cater for the emerging needs of non-accounting degree graduates who would like to equip themselves with intensive accounting education and prepare for a career in the accounting field. The Part One curriculum is equivalent to our Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Accountancy (PDPA) Program, which is accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) as a conversion program under its Qualification Program (QP). The Part Two curriculum prepares accountants on how to integrate the various aspects of accounting knowledge and apply them to the work environment.

We are committed to providing our students with an open, dynamic and interactive learning environment. In addition to lectures, the Program provides students with ample opportunities to engage in two-way discussions with professors and accounting professionals in discussion groups, projects and seminars.

Program Aims

Our Program is designed to impart concepts and practical knowledge of professional accounting to participants and further develop their conceptual and analytical abilities for the attainment of professional accounting qualifications. The Program:

  • Provides non-accounting graduates with solid training in the core areas of professional accounting;
  • Develops and enhances students' analytical and conceptual skills and abilities, particularly those related to accounting problems and issues;
  • Enables students to obtain the necessary competency in professional accounting and thus to contribute significantly to both their workplaces and the accounting profession;
  • Assists non-accounting graduates to become professional accountants;
