CROSS CAMPUS PROGRAMME
Students are given the opportunity to register for courses in participating local and international universities. The grades and credits gained can be transferred for purposes of graduation.
MQA, ACCA and ICAEW Accreditation To ensure the quality of our program is maintained, the Bachelor of Accounting program has obtained full accreditation from Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) in 2015. The program has also been recognized by The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) with maximum exemptions and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) (with 7-paper exemptions). MIA Accreditation The Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) Council has suspended the accreditation exercise of universities’ accounting degrees for the purpose of inclusion into Part 1, First Schedule of the Accountants Act 1967. The accreditation process was put on hold following the MIA Annual General Meeting (AGM) resolution in 2013 to give room for a review of accounting programs nationally. This has led to the UTM Bachelor of Accounting program missing the opportunity to be accredited by MIA. However, the freeze has been lifted in 2020 which enables us to finally re-submit the application for MIA accreditation. We are currently implementing recommendations for improvements by the MIA Accreditation Panel to meet the accreditation criteria. The accreditation exercise is expected to complete in 2022. MICPA Accreditation Application for accreditation has also been submitted to the Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA). We are currently working for the third stage of the accreditation exercise – the on-site visit. The accreditation exercise is expected to complete in 2022. OTHER INITIATIVES Furthermore, to pave the way for our graduates to be professionally qualified and to acquire more competencies, collaborations with external parties have been made. Among the initiatives are: ACCA Accelerate+ Program – where the students on the program accredited by ACCA will be able to register with ACCA before they complete their Bachelor of Accounting. ACCA will support students of Accelerate accredited program who will have exceptional financial conditions, free initial registration fee, free annual subscription fee up to two years after graduation (inclusive of graduation year), deferred exemption fee payment (up to 24 months after graduation). ACCA will also support students by organizing information events, meetings with ACCA members, and promoting the ACCA qualification at the university. Strategic partnerships with Big Four Firms and medium-sized firms as well as multi-national companies – as a result, we received overwhelmed responses and many of our graduates are recruited and employed by these firms. Strong and constant support from these firms provide us funding opportunities which benefit our programs in various kind of activities. Engagement with industry – in both academic and research related matters to cater their expectations as well as to ensure that our curriculum and research is relevant and impactful.
