Established in 2001, the School of Accountancy (SoA) is the second largest school in SMU.
SoA began with a cohort of 90 Bachelor of Accountancy students and eight faculty members. The undergraduate programme became the first American-styled broad-based accountancy programme in Singapore, with a curriculum that met the accreditation requirements of the major accounting regulatory bodies.
Currently, SoA has a faculty team of close to 50 and offers the following distinctive programmes: the Bachelor of Accountancy, Master of Professional Accounting and most recently, Master of Science in Accounting (Data & Analytics) and PhD in Accounting. SoA also offers the joint-postgraduate programmes – Tsinghua-SMU Master of Science in CFO Leadership and SMU-ZJU Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) (Accounting and Finance). These programmes are designed in line with the development of Singapore as a leading global hub for accounting research, services and professionals for the Asia Pacific.
