The Department of Accounting offers a program of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Accounting. The courses are designed primarily for students who intend to enter the accounting profession.

Programme Description

The department aims at producing accounting graduates who are professionally competent and observe ethical norms in their conduct.  As such, the accounting curriculum has been designed to provide the conceptual framework of accounting by integrating components of basic Islamic and accounting knowledge.  In addition, the program offers elective courses in specific areas of accounting to meet the need for accounting with an Islamic perspective.  These courses are Accounting for Islamic Banks and Zakat Accounting.  Practical training is part of the requirement for graduation and is undertaken through placement with institutions related to accounting for a period of 12 weeks after completion of six semesters of course work.  This carries 6 credit hours.  Graduates of the program with three years experience in accounting are recognized by the Malaysian Institute of Accountants for entry as Chartered Accountants.  The program is also recognized by international and local professional accountancy bodies such as CIMA, CPA (Aust), MICPA and ACCA for substantial exemptions.
