Master of Finance in Taxation
CityU SCOPE

Many accountants will tell you that their industry's future lies on the mainland. To equip local professionals with such accounting knowledge, City University of Hong Kong's School of Continuing and Professional Education (SCOPE) is offering the pioneering master of finance in taxation in collaboration with Guangzhou's Jinan University and the Taxation Institute of Hong Kong.

"Lecturers from Jinan University and local accounting veterans make up the teaching staff. Students get to know the tax system of Hong Kong, the mainland and international standards," says Oskar Lam, the programme officer. 

"We have students from Big Four accounting firms and the government's Inland Revenue Department," she adds. "Most are at management level, with more than 10 years of experience. Class size is below 20 as we want our students to be closely attended to."

The course, which takes two years to complete, is delivered intensively, with classes on Friday evenings and full-day lectures on weekends. Students also have the chance to visit accounting firms and relevant government departments. 

Applicants must hold a recognised bachelor degree, or an associate degree or higher diploma - so long as they have two years' work experience. They must sit a written examination on accounting and finance basics. 

The masters is awarded by Jinan University, and is an exempted course under the Non-Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance. Hence, it is up to employers to recognise any qualification to which this course may lead.
