KDU College Penang launches new Diploma in Accounting

George Town, 16 June- KDU College Penang (KDU College) has launched a new Diploma in Accounting course, which is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in accounting knowledge, while equipping them with competencies and skills to hit the ground running in the real world.

“This two-year course adds another industry-relevant programme into our stable of offerings under the KDU College’s School of Business. This is a specialised business programme that provides students with many options upon graduation: they can pursue either a bachelor’s degree in business or accounting or even a professional accounting qualification.

“Alternatively, they may also start working in virtually any type of business. For those aiming for an ACCA qualification, they can enjoy exemptions up to 9 papers upon successful completion of this diploma programme,” said Mr Prakash Lachmanan, Academic Department Head for the School of Business.

This course introduces students to the core areas of financial and management accounting, providing the platform from which other technical accountancy areas will be studied in greater detail. These include subjects like Financial Accounting and Management Accounting. The module also contains subjects which comprehensively cover the main technical areas that any accountant, regardless of their future career aspirations, is expected to master. These subjects include Auditing, Taxation, Statistics, Business Law and Malaysian Company Law.

Through various modules in the programme, students will develop analytical and practical skills, which will enable them to easily transfer their knowledge and

Leveraging on KDU’s strong industry links with various organisations, there are good opportunities for KDU students to apply classroom-based knowledge in real work environments. Students will also gain a wider perspective of the working world through workshops which include guest speakers who are experts in their field of practice.

Diploma in Accounting graduates who wish to progress into degree programmes or professional programmes can continue their studies locally. Alternatively, they can gain advanced standing to Year 2 at prestigious universities in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
