How is increasing demand for accountants affecting your program?
“We have anticipated that the increasing demand is not only for numbers of accountants but also their preparedness to enter the profession. Therefore, in addition to increasing the number of our admitted students in recent years, we have revised our curriculum and enhanced the students’ ‘experiential learning’ outside of the classroom through direct contact with business professionals, field trips to regulatory agencies and internship experiences.”
