The Master of Professional Accounting from Singapore Management University curriculum offers academic rigour and first-hand industry knowledge, and is taught by world-class faculty with significant industry experience.
The MPA appeals to two main groups of aspirants – non-accounting graduates who wish to join the accounting profession, and those who require accounting knowledge in their expanded or future roles.
MPA graduates are well sought after in areas of accounting, auditing, banking, finance, taxation and consulting in both the public and private sectors.
The accounting sector in Singapore is undergoing a major transformation to realise its aim of becoming a leading global accountancy hub for Asia Pacific. To achieve this vision, one of the major initiatives implemented is the creation of new pathways to facilitate entry of degree holders from non-accountancy disciplines.
