Unique fast-track prog
ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), Sunway TES and University of Malaya (UM) have collaborated to provide students who are studying the Bachelor of Accounting programme at UM with the opportunity to attain an ACCA Qualification through a unique fast-track programme.
This collaboration was formalised at a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) signing ceremony held recently, which was witnessed by Yang Berhormat Dato' Devamany a/l S.Krishnasamy, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Office.
Through this agreement, students in their third year of the accounting degree programme in UM who have demonstrated good potential can take up the ACCA Qualification concurrently. Those selected for this programme will have their ACCA course fees fully sponsored by participating employers which include AFTAAS, BDO, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KHR, KPMG, PwC and the Sunway Group; and will also be provided internship placements.
UM accounting degree students will be able to claim nine exemptions from ACCA should they choose to register and study under this special collaboration. Thus, they will only be required to sit for the remaining five ACCA papers at the Professional level.
This unique collaboration is recognised as an initiative under Talent Corporation Malaysia's (TalentCorp) Talent Roadmap 2020 plan recently unveiled by the Prime Minister, YAB Dato' Sri Mohd Najib.
