Dean's Message

Welcome to the School of Accountancy!

Since its inception, the School of Accountancy has made significant contributions towards the tertiary landscape in Singapore through our degree programmes – the Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc), the Master of Professional Accounting (MPA), and the Master of Science in CFO Leadership (MCFO).

Graduates from our BAcc programme enjoy high employment rates each year, and they command significantly higher starting salaries than their local peers. The two Master degree programmes are a first in Singapore, and have attracted many business and management executives to join our programmes. Our MPA and MCFO graduates are making strong inroads into their respective professions, and we will welcome the first cohort SMU-Tsinghua joint MCFO programme students to the SoA family in September 2015.

Our faculty strength continues to grow, and we count world-class scholars and business leaders as part of our team. Our faculty have been gaining international recognition for their research productivity. The research productivity in the empirical research is ranked #1 in Asia and #8 in the world. We boast a robust research environment with a strong blend of academic-driven research and practice research. At the same time, our faculty consistently rank as best teachers in the university.  Our faculty also produce outstanding pedagogy works that achieve international recognition. With this unique composition in our faculty team, we are recognised for our contributions towards the thought-leadership, education and training in the accounting industry.

Through the University’s collaboration with world class institutions, including the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, our School enjoys close interactions with top faculty from these institutions. Our School also works closely with top Chinese schools in joint-postgraduate programmes and the training of PhD students.

With Singapore poised to be the leading accounting hub for the Asia-Pacific region by 2020, I extend a warm welcome to you to partner with us, or to join us as part of our exciting and dynamic community at the School of Accountancy.
