Global Accounting Stream
Global Accounting Stream
In light of the increasingly complex business environment besieged with unpredictable changes, many corporations realised that they need to be more sensitive to global issues including corporate governance, sustainability reporting, regulations and risk management. To maintain and promote the sustainability of the Hong Kong economy, it is vital to nurture talents with a global way of thinking and equip students with the abilities of coping with changes.
