Master of Finance in Taxation
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.&
