High-quality accounting and accountability are vital in order to bind businesses, the environment and society together. It is essential that people not only obtain a thorough understanding of accounting knowledge and technology but also understand how accounting functions in its social context, and that they evaluate the consequences of their use of accounting, ensuring that accounting is a force for good.
We aim to be the School of Accounting for ambitious people and organizations, who believe that transparency, accountability, and fairness are universal values served by accounting, and who are committed to seeking out ever better ways of promoting these values.
As an academic institute, we provide a stimulating environment in which people from a wide range of educational and experiential backgrounds can develop and find their role in maintaining and improving the contribution that accounting makes to society. We encourage them all to shape the future responsibly, as academics, professionals, and citizens.
