Initially, the Bachelor of Management degree had 6 areas of specialization namely Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Operations Management, Organisational Behavior and Islamic Finance. The nation’s critical call for qualified accountants and a growing need for a full fledge Accounting Program led the School of Management to offer the Bachelor of Accounting degree with effect from the 1999/2000 academic session.
The entire curriculum for this degree was designed in close collaboration and consultation with the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) and many other professional accounting bodies. The MIA is the professional quality control association in the field of accounting and MIA is a member of the International Accounting Standards Board responsible for studying accounting standards besides current local and international accounting issues.
These efforts culminated in the accreditation of the Accountancy Program by the MIA on the 30th of September 2000. This recognition means that the graduates will be accepted as Certified Accountants after gaining 3 years working experience at an accounting firm or an industry. As such, graduates of the program can apply to become Chartered Accountants after gaining a 3-year working experience in the field of accounting or a related field under MIA's CARE program.
With MIA’s input, the Bachelor of Accounting degree program offered by the School of Management has successfully combined the expertise and experience of both accounting professionals as well as accounting academics. This has resulted in the enhancement of the program to world standards. Apart from the MIA’s involvement, the program also receives feedback from members of the Malaysian Institute of Certified Accountants [MICPA], representatives of the Department of the National Accountants and as well as representatives of renowned audit firms.
As quality education is the School of Management's ultimate objective, various other professional bodies were invited to assess its curricula and instructional strategies. Other professional bodies like MICPA, ACCA, CIMA, CPA AUSTRALIA, and ICAEW have followed suit in accrediting the School of Management’s Accounting Program. With effect from the 2002/2003 Academic Session, students need to complete their studies in 4 years. The 4-year curriculum has been examined by audit firms, management consultants, company managers and financial consultants. It is necessary to ensure that the curriculum content can fulfill market needs.
The efforts and determination of the entire School of Management's faculty bared success when in 2003; the Ministry of Education bestowed the honor of being the best School of Business Management and Accounting in the country. This recognition was based on an academic audit undertaken by a few professors from a consortium of the Institutes of Higher Learning New Zealand in collaboration with a local audit firm, Atarik Kamil and Company. Most recently, the School of Management was accorded three (3) Palms, as an “Excellent Business School” by Eduniversal World Business School Ranking for three years in a row (2010, 2011, and 2012).
