Course Description

The aim of the Faculty is to produce wholesome graduates, equipped with the tools, knowledge and practical experience to succeed as entrepreneurs, corporate managers and accounting professionals. Our education methodology is based on personalised learning, which includes face to face and online interaction via our ground breaking 21st Century Teaching and Learning methodology; UNITAR Education Core (UNIEC).

Our programmes are designed with industry certifications embedded right into the syllabus. Hence providing a pathway for students to achieve both a Bachelor’s Degree from UNITAR and industry recognised certifications from our partners, such as Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) among others.

We have a very strong linkage with the industry partners that are known for excellence in their respective fields. As part of the programme curriculum, students are required to complete an industrial attachment. The Faculty’s emphasis is on “Building Credentials” that strives to work closely with industries through research and consultancy. We provide students with current knowledge and invaluable work experience, which will best prepare them as working professionals in the corporate world.
