About Courses

The Master's programme in Accountancy began in 1996 as a joint collaborative programme between UiTM and Curtin University of Technology, Australia.  Since 1999, the collaborative programme has evolved into UiTM's own Master of Accountancy programme.  As an alternative, we offer a full research master programme to educate students to be critical, analytical and ethical at an advanced level.  Students may register either fo full-time or part-time study.  The normal study period is 1 1/2 years full time or 2-4 years part time.  Each student is assigned at least one supervisor who is a member of the University academic staff.
