SMU MPA is a graduate qualification that has received accreditation from various global professional bodies (ISCA, CPA Australia, ICAA, ICAEW, CIMA, SAC and AACSB). The MPA curriculum offers academic rigour and first-hand industry knowledge, and is taught by a world-class faculty with significant industry experience. The MPA appeals to two main groups of aspirants – non-accounting graduates who wish to join the accounting profession, and those who require accounting knowledge in their expanded or future roles. MPA graduates are well sought after in areas of accounting, taxation, auditing and consulting in both the public and private sectors.
