New Straits Times - - Excellence In Education -

TUNKU Ab­dul Rah­man Univer­sity Col­lege (TAR UC) of­fers pro­fes­sional busi­ness and fi­nance ed­u­ca­tion. Of­fered and con­ducted by the Fac­ulty of Ac­coun­tancy, Fi­nance and Busi­ness (FAFB), the ac­coun­tancy and busi­ness pro­grammes pro­vide an ac­cel­er­ated path­way for stu­dents to not only gain TAR UC’s bach­e­lor’s de­gree but also ac­quire glob­ally recog­nised pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tion in rel­e­vant ar­eas from global pro­fes­sional bod­ies, such as the As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants (ACCA), Char­tered In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tants (CIMA), the In­sti­tute of Char­tered Sec­re­taries and Ad­min­is­tra­tors (ICSA), In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales (ICAEW), The Char­tered In­sti­tute of Mar­ket­ing (CIM) and Fi­nan­cial Plan­ning As­so­ci­a­tion of Malaysia (FPAM).

ACCA, be­ing a glob­ally recog­nised ac­count­ing body, has given its high­est ex­emp­tion to a num­ber of TAR UC ac­count­ing pro­grammes, namely the Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hons) and Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons).

TAR UC’s Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hons) stu­dents will be given ex­emp­tion from Pa­pers F1 to F9 of the ACCA Fun­da­men­tals upon com­ple­tion of their Year 2 stud­ies, and fi­nal-year stu­dents are pre­pared to sit the fi­nal 5 ACCA Pro­fes­sional Level pa­pers’ ex­am­i­na­tions.

Stu­dents who grad­u­ate from TAR UC’s Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons) and Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Hons) Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance pro­grammes will be ex­empted from all nine pa­pers of the ACCA fun­da­men­tals.

TAR UC is the only in­sti­tu­tion in the world ap­proved by ACCA to con­duct the In­ter­nally As­sessed ACCA Fun­da­men­tals (Skills Mo­d­ule) pro­gramme for all nine mod­ules of the ACCA Fun­da­men­tals.

The In­ter­nally As­sessed pro­gramme is in­cluded in the three­year Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hons) pro­gramme.

In terms of ac­cred­i­ta­tion by CIMA, TAR UC’s Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons) stu­dents are granted the max­i­mum ex­emp­tion from CIMA, which means stu­dents are ex­empted from 12 out of 17 pa­pers of CIMA.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties are also given to fi­nal-year stu­dents of the Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons) pro­gramme to at­tempt the CIMA Man­age­ment Case Study and Strate­gic Level pa­pers un­der spe­cial ar­range­ment with CIMA.

As for ac­cred­i­ta­tion by ICSA, TAR UC stu­dents who have grad­u­ated with the Bach­e­lor of Cor­po­rate Ad­min­is­tra­tion (Hons) are ex­empted from 12 out of 16 pa­pers of the ICSA ex­am­i­na­tion.

TAR UC’s Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons) pro­gramme is also ac­cred­ited by ICAEW.

Grad­u­ates of this pro­gramme will be granted ex­emp­tions for eight out of the 15 pa­pers of the ACA ex­am­i­na­tion.

The lat­est pro­fes­sional body to grant ac­cred­i­ta­tion to TAR UC is CIM where TAR UC is recog­nised as a grad­u­ate gate­way ac­cred­ited univer­sity in Malaysia.

This recog­ni­tion paves the way for TAR UC stu­dents to be given ex­emp­tion on Ac­cred­i­ta­tion of Prior Learn­ing (APL) ba­sis from one out of three mod­ules of CIM’s Diploma in Pro­fes­sional Mar­ket­ing.

TAR UC stu­dents who are pur­su­ing their third year of the Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Hons) in Mar­ket­ing will be pre­pared to sit the CIM Diploma in Pro­fes­sional Mar­ket­ing ex­am­i­na­tions.

Upon pass­ing the CIM ex­am­i­na­tion with rel­e­vant work ex­pe­ri­ence, grad­u­ates from TAR UC can ap­ply for CIM as­so­ciate mem­ber­ship. TAR UC’s bank­ing, fi­nance and in­vest­ment pro­grammes have also re­ceived ac­cred­i­ta­tion from FPAM.

Grad­u­ates of the Bach­e­lor of Fi­nance and In­vest­ment (Hons) as well as Bach­e­lor of Bank­ing and Fi­nance (Hons) are ex­empted from Mo­d­ule 3 In­vest­ment Plan­ning and Re­tire­ment Plan­ning of the Cer­ti­fied Fi­nan­cial Plan­ner (CFP) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gramme. TAR UC will have an open day un­til April 2, from 9am to 5pm, at its Kuala Lumpur main cam­pus and branch cam­puses in Pe­nang, Perak, Jo­hor, Pa­hang and Sabah.
