Masters in Accountancy in Asia 2017. As part of its mission to become a world-class university, the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) is expanding its graduate program offerings at both Masters and Doctoral levels. The accounting department is launching the first AACSB-accredited MPA program in the region to meet local demands for practitioners and managers alike. The Accounting Department has obtained (in 2012) the first AACSB-accounting accreditation in the GCC and MENA region, and the tenth worldwide outside North America. As the professional accounting field is highly needed in the country, this program was considered to attract top businesses and companies from around the world. The MPA program caters for practicing accountants and managers who have chosen the professional path, and would like to further their education with a post-graduate degree in accounting. The degree will also be a natural route to a Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA). Students whose first degree is not accounting, or with limited or no background on accounting and/or Business will have to successfully complete foundation courses before they are formally admitted to the program. However, those courses will not count towards the final credit hours of the program. For those students who have limited background in accounting (mainly business students), they will be asked to successfully complete two foundation courses, before they are admitted to the program. As for students with no relevant degree (mainly non-business students), they will be asked to take four courses. In addition, each applicant with no business background will be subject to an individual assessment on a case by case basis to make sure that the pool of students have the basic competencies and knowledge (mainly in economics and statistics) needed for the program. Teaching will be through evening sessions. Each semester (Fall and Spring) will be divided into two quarters, two courses offered each quarter. This translates into students being able to do 8 courses every academic year, needing 3 semesters to complete the 12 courses required. Each course is equivalent to 3 credit hours which are equivalent to 48 contact hours (inclusive of class hours, compulsory group work, and supervised field projects). The objectives of the MPA program include the following: Enable graduates to have a high level of functional and technical competence in accounting that surpasses market-offered competencies. Cover much wider areas of accounting than any of the professional accounting certifications that tend to be narrowly specialized. Develop personal and business competencies (technical and non-technical) of graduates and provide them with an excellent foundation for successful professional careers. These competences are knowledge and professional skills essential to career success, such as research skills, analysis skills, judgment skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills, and group interaction skills. Enable graduates to apply best accounting theories to their own practices, which form the basis of a sound accounting profession in the region and internationally. Enable graduates to meet one of the criteria for enrollment in DBA programs. Enable accountants who are yet to obtain professional certifications to complete the required minimum credit hours of higher education study (for example the 150 credit hours required for the American CPA certification). Admission Requirements Admission to the MPA program will be based on the following criteria: A cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or equivalent, in all undergraduate work. A Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited university recognized by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. A score of at least 6.0 on the IELTS Academic exam or equivalent. This test score must be less than two years old at the time of application. Candidates will be required to have a formal interview in English. Candidates will be required to submit two recommendation letters. Candidates with no degree in Accounting but with a business background will be required to successfully complete two prerequisite foundation courses. Candidates with no degree in accounting and no business background will be required to successfully complete four prerequisite foundation courses. In addition, a case-by-case assessment will be made for each candidate. A complete application package must include the following: Completed application form; The required non-refundable application fee stated on the form (AED 1000). This fee must be paid prior to consideration of the application; Two certified copies of official transcripts from all Colleges or universities attended (the applicant must arrange for these to be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar and Dean of Enrollment); and An official copy of the applicant’s IELTS certificate or equivalent. Final decisions concerning a student's acceptance into the program rests with the MPA Admissions Committee. [-]

Courses are subject to change and the specific program of 10 courses will be determined by the School as appropriate for each of the degree programs.* Advanced Auditing & other Assurance ServicesThe course builds on the skills obtained in the beginning auditing (assurance) course. The primary goal is to further develop student ability to understand and apply audit planning, evidence and reporting procedures.*Computer SecurityUnderstanding and design of a comprehensive enterprise information security policy. Topics include design of a security policy, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, VPNs, encryption, and backup/disaster recovery.* Project ManagementIn this course, students learn project management skills & techniques. The focus will be on understanding project management lifecycles, practicing project management/consulting skills, tools and techniques, analyzing common project failure factors. This course will relate course content to a “real life” Accountancy and Information Systems orientation.* Information Management This course describes how an organization manages systems that provides the information it needs to remain competitive. Information management processes are organized around the COSO enterprise risk management framework. Students learn how organizations align information technology (IT) with business strategy, identify the risks that threaten system reliability, design control procedures to address those risks, and develop internal processes for monitoring and maintaining strategic alignment and control effectiveness.* Intelligent Decision Systems and Knowledge ManagementThe course will focus on deriving decisional value by using new orientations to data that are afforded by state-of-the-art Online Analytical Processing Systems (OLAP) and Data Warehousing technology. The emphasis would be on retrieval and dissemination of decision supporting data by applying Relational-OLAP, Multidimensional-OLAP, and Web based-OLAP to Enterprise wide data. These concepts will then be further enhanced by applications of Data Mining tools and techniques to further enhance the utility of the organizational information for strategic and tactical decision making. Students will also be given exposure to collaborative computing environments and experience its implications for managerial decision making.* Governmental AccountingState and local government accounting is the primary focus of this course, with some coverage of federal government accounting practices. First part of the course covers the conceptual differences between private and public sector accounting, such as budgetary accounting difference between financial flow of funds and economic flow of funds new requirements under Statement 34 will be considered within the context of the new financial statements and their reconciliation with fund accounts. The second part of the course will explore fund accounting and the uniqueness of each individual fund type (General Fund, Proprietary Funds, Capital Funds, and Fiduciary Funds). The third section of the course will look at the Yellow Book and other audit requirements for state and local governments. The course will end with a look at new and potential future standards of GASB such as OPEBs, and international governmental accounting standards.* Performance Measurement of Emerging Business ModelsThis course provides a framework that addresses issues related to performance measurement in organizations. Focus of discussions is on the significance of proper linkages and fitness among the organization’s strategic goals, its management control system (MCS) and the function of human resources management (HRM).A theoretical and conceptual framework on incentive/compensation, human resource management and management control will be offered during the first module of the class. The course will close with discussions on the system aspect and implications of designing an enterprise-wide integrated performance measurement (ERP).* Shareholder Value Creation & Financial Statement AnalysisThis course examines the role of financial statements and non-financial indicators in providing valuation information useful to managers and financial markets. Modules explore the competitive positioning of companies within industries and strategies used to optimize competitive position, the interrelation of competitive strategy and financial statements, and procedures used by analysts in valuing companies.* Taxation of Corporations and ShareholdersThis course is designed to make you familiar with the tax consequences, to both corporations and their shareholders, of the life cycle of a corporation. Areas covered include choice of entity, corporate formations, operations, distributions and liquidations, as well as corporate acquisitions and reorganizations* Taxes and Business StrategyThis course focuses on the importance of tax considerations in business decision-making and provides an appreciation of the pervasive role of taxes in these settings. The main objective of this course is to provide you with knowledge of the fundamental principles that underlie all tax planning strategies in making such decisions. These principles draw on basic concepts of corporate finance and microeconomics and integrate these concepts with the tax laws. Through this integration, the course provides a framework for understanding how taxes affect business decision-making. This framework can serve as a basic toolkit to identify and evaluate tax planning opportunities. To illustrate the value of this framework, we will apply it to settings most value-added to both personal and business decisions, such as compensation, structuring the firm and raising capital, and mergers and acquisitions. The ultimate goal of the course is to provide a new approach to thinking about taxes (indeed, all forms of government intervention) that will be valuable even as laws and governments.* Research and Advanced AccountingThe course is designed to apply the technical knowledge of accounting theory and principles developed in other academic courses through the use of “real life” case studies, where such knowledge and professional judgment is applied in resolving advanced accounting problems and issues. This should result in developing analytical and research capabilities through case analysis and communication and interpersonal skills through written and oral presentations.* Special TopicsThis course covers topics that are not covered in depth in other courses but are important in your career. Some of the topics are technical in nature related to tax, accounting or information systems. Others address business (and life) skills that everyone needs, such as negotiation skills. The classes are taught by the faculty and by guest lecturers with specific expertise in the topics being presented. [-]
