Shorter Route to Professional Accounting Qualifications via INTI’s Accounting & Finance Degree

July 24, 2013

A new accounting and finance qualification by the UK’s leading business-facing university offered at INTI is providing quicker access to Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualifications. Offered in collaboration with the University of Hertfordshire (UH), the BA (Hons) in Accounting & Finance (3+0) allows exemptions from Part 1 of the ACCA and foundation examinations of CIMA.*

Students at INTI’s campus in Subang Jaya have the opportunity to earn the UH BA (Hons) in Accounting & Finance without having to go abroad.

The BA (Hons) in Accounting & Finance (3+0) programme introduces students to both financial accounting and management accounting. Students will also develop the essential skills and knowledge in Finance through modules such as Principles of Corporate Finance, Advanced Corporate Finance and Financial Strategy. Other modules include Malaysian Company Law and Malaysian Taxation.


As the entire degree can be completed at INTI, students have the opportunity to earn a prestigious internationally recognized degree without having to incur the high cost of tuition and living expenses usually associated with pursuing tertiary level qualifications abroad. They gain local access to the same content taught in the UK and will receive a degree from UH upon successful completion of the course.


UH was recently selected as one of the world’s top 100 universities aged under 50 by Times Higher Education (THE) in a new addition to its World University Rankings portfolio. The rankings are based on excellence across teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook. UH scored highly for the citing of its academic research on a global scale and for its international outlook and mix. INTI’s ties with UH span more than a decade and it is the first international Associate College of the University in Malaysia.
