Initially it may seem daunting to juggle both work and studies, but the journey is definitely worth it. What is unique about the programme is that everyone comes from different backgrounds. It was a great experience to see how all these diverse students come together just like in the real world at work.

Feng Fumin

The MPA offers an opportunity for practitioners without an accounting degree to deepen their accounting knowledge and widen their exposure to areas such as audit and taxation. As the financial industry develops and accounting standards become more complex, the skills and strong accounting fundamentals gained from the MPA programme will stand me in good stead to meet future challenges of my work.

The MPA provides an education that is both inside and outside of the textbooks. The course is very intense and demanding. At the same time, it equips me with the knowledge and confidence to explore new opportunities in my professional career. One factor that differentiates MPA is the quality of the lecturers and students. They have definitely made the lessons much more manageable and enjoyable.
