Message by the Dean

The future is now. The accounting industry is rapidly transforming, with analytics, automation and accounting data becoming increasingly integral to the business strategies of corporations and accounting firms.
Our aim at the SMU School of Accountancy (SoA) is to nurture future talents who are fluent in accounting data and analytics applications; capable of communicating analyses effectively and equipped with sound accounting knowledge to make good judgement and decisions.
Our Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc) programme provides a holistic education that is broad-based with a strong accounting core, covering business, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership skills, communications and social responsibility. Internship and community service ensure our students graduate with hands-on experience and are ready for the corporate world. Our newly launched Second Major in Accounting Data & Analytics, the first-of-its-kind in Asia, will also feature data technology and accounting application courses that are developed in line with industry needs.
At SoA, we believe in empowering our students to chart their own education journey. You will have the flexibility to complete your BAcc degree within three years, or longer, if you wish to enrich your tertiary experience with global exposure, multiple internships, a second major and more – a decision that will give you an edge among peers.
A future-ready accounting professional will be an asset for any accounting or non-accounting organisation. Your Accountancy degree will be the key to career opportunities in any industry you choose. The future is now and you can Be Accountable for your Future today.
We look forward to welcoming you as our student.
