Grad­u­ates with an edge

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

QUAL­I­FIED ac­coun­tants are in de­mand around the world to help busi­nesses, govern­ment, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als with fi­nance man­age­ment.

The field of fi­nance can take Curtin grad­u­ates any­where in the world, work­ing in cor­po­rate fi­nance for big, well-known in­sti­tu­tions.

It is a dy­namic field con­cern­ing the man­age­ment, cre­ation and study of money, bank­ing, credit, in­vest­ments, as­sets and li­a­bil­i­ties that make up the fi­nan­cial sys­tems.

As Curtin Univer­sity’s largest in­ter­na­tional branch, Curtin Malaysia’s De­part­ment of Ac­count­ing of the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness of­fers the Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance) dou­ble-ma­jor to stu­dents aim­ing to spe­cialise in that field.

The three-year, full-time course is the most pop­u­lar dou­ble-ma­jor com­bi­na­tions Curtin Univer­sity of­fers both its cam­puses in Perth, Western Aus­tralia and Miri, Sarawak.

Other ac­count­ing dou­ble-ma­jor cour­ses of­fered are ac­count­ing and bank­ing, and ac­count­ing and en­trepreneur­ship.

The course is recog­nised by the Malaysian Govern­ment through the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency (MQA) and the Pub­lic Ser­vices De­part­ment.

It is also widely recog­nised by CPA Aus­tralia, In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants Aus­tralia (ICAA), Malaysian In­sti­tute of Cer­ti­fied Pub­lic Ac­coun­tants (MICPA), Char­tered In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tants, UK (CIMA) and As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants, UK (ACCA).

Grad­u­ates can ob­tain mem­ber­ship in CPA Aus­tralia, ICAA or ACCA, and are el­i­gi­ble for mem­ber­ship in MICPA, CIMA and the Malaysian In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants (MIA).

Curtin Malaysia’s Fac­ulty of Busi­ness is among the world’s elite busi­ness in­sti­tu­tions fol­low­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion of its par­ent Curtin Busi­ness School (CBS) at Curtin Univer­sity by the As­so­ci­a­tion to Ad­vance Col­le­giate Schools of Busi­ness (AACSB).

As Curtin Malaysia of­fers iden­ti­cal busi­ness pro­grammes and course de­liv­ery as the CBS, Curtin Malaysia’s Fac­ulty of Busi­ness un­der­went the same AACSB peer re­view ac­cred­i­ta­tion as Curtin’s other cam­puses in Perth and Sin­ga­pore.

The AACSB is the lead­ing in­ter­na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tion body for busi­ness schools and AACSB ac­cred­i­ta­tion re­quires that all cam­puses meet strict stan­dards of aca­demic qual­ity.

Stu­dents can opt to com­plete all three years at Curtin Malaysia or trans­fer to the main cam­pus for year two and three.

Curtin Malaysia busi­ness grad­u­ates have gained em­ploy­ment in di­verse pro­fes­sional roles and busi­ness ar­eas across the globe.

Grad­u­ates can look for­ward to lu­cra­tive ca­reers as pro­fes­sional ac­coun­tants, au­di­tors, fi­nan­cial an­a­lysts, fi­nan­cial plan­ners, fi­nance man­agers, in­vest­ment bankers, fund man­agers and fu­tures traders, both within Malaysia and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Stu­dents also learn from ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ing staff, and are ex­posed to some of the in­dus­try’s top em­ploy­ers through op­por­tu­ni­ties such as spon­sored field trips, in­tern­ships, real-life sce­nar­ios and prac­ti­cal as­sign­ments, guest lec­tures by in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, and net­work­ing events.

Curtin Malaysia is a pop­u­lar choice for both Malaysian and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from over 45 coun­tries be­cause of its in­ter­na­tional out­look, in­no­va­tive cour­ses, world-class teach­ing fa­cil­i­ties, flex­i­ble study op­tions, ap­plied and prac­ti­cal sub­jects, use of ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy, and part­ner­ships with in­dus­try and govern­ment.

The rel­a­tively lower tu­ition fees and liv­ing costs com­pared to un­der­go­ing the same cour­ses at the main cam­pus is also a big draw. In a nut­shell, stu­dents get a qual­ity Aus­tralian ed­u­ca­tion and global learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in a unique Malaysian set­ting, and at Malaysian fees.

Curtin Malaysia’s July 2017 in­take is now in progress.
