CamEd has new program to nurture future accounting and finance professionals

CamEd Business School (CamEd) has always strived to develop a community of accounting and finance professionals with leadership skills, perform on par with those in international financial centres and uphold ethical standards.

This vision will be further strengthened through CamEd ‘s Bachelor of Accounting and Finance (Honours) + Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) Program, or also known as BA + CAT Program. The accounting course is part of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute University Affiliation Program.

Students who enrol in this program completes an accredited four year degree and at the same time, study towards the international CAT qualification. Upon completion, they may opt to further their study to obtain the ACCA qualification.

As the curriculum of BA + CAT Program seeks to fulfil the requirements of the Ministry of Education foundation year, the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and the Certified Accounting Technician program of the ACCA, there is limited scope for elective subjects.

Upon graduation, students can continue to obtain the ACCA qualification.

All subjects are compulsory and the curriculum does not distinguish between major, minor and elective subjects. However, certain subjects will have a preferred order of study as well as prerequisites, which are set in the relevant course specifications.

Upon completion of a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance, program students may consider two paths of continuing education. The first path is to pursue professional certification such as ACCA, CPA, CMA, CFA or CRM. Other than that, students can also opt for graduate degrees such as a Master of Business Administration or a Master of Science in accounting, finance or management.

CamEd follows the principles of outcomes based education to help students achieve learning outcomes that are aligned with the current and future needs of employers and the economy. Hence, graduates of the program will be well prepared to join the accounting and finance profession.

Positions held by graduates will include titles such as accountant, auditor, financial analyst, financial consultant, tax consultant, investment officer, loan officer, budget analyst, cost accountant, treasurer, risk management officer, and financial accountant.

The BA +CAT Program prepares students for the accounting and finance profession.

It is expected that graduates will begin with entry level positions, and, depending on aptitude and opportunity, gradually advancing to higher positions such as manager, finance manager, audit partner and chief financial officer.

As CamEd advocates lifelong learning, students are nurtured to be lifelong learners to support their personal development and continued employability.

CamEd believes that personal, financial, and economic successes arise by acting with integrity, behaving ethically and creating shared value. Ethical standards are immersed in its students and employees through study, community activities, and school practices.
