Message From the Academic Director

The Master of Science in Accounting Program (MSAC) offered by the HKUST Business School provides students with an interest in accounting related opportunity to further their study with a premier accounting curriculum at postgraduate level.

The program is tailor-made and is both practical and academically rigorous. It is based on a foundation of carefully designed courses and components, and intends to cultivate “thinking” professional accountants, nurturing them to become successful business professionals across different business functions within diverse organizations.

The program caters for both accounting and non-accounting majors from business and non-business disciplines who are thinking of developing, or further enhancing, their careers in accounting and other related fields. Through this program, our graduates will derive knowledge in accounting and business related areas at postgraduate level and be accredited by major accounting professional organizations, including the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), CPA Australia and Chartered Institute of Management Accountant (CIMA).

As one of the top universities in Asia, HKUST will provide our MSAC students with an exciting learning environment, distinguished faculty, highly internationalized student profile and activities, and our famously beautiful campus.

The MSAC program provides students access to professional careers and the opportunity to master future success.
