Diploma in Accounting

About The Programme

The Diploma in Accounting (DIA) offers students the flexibility and opportunity to embark on a professional accounting route by taking the CAT examinations concurrently on their own. DIA is designed to equip students with all the necessary technical skills and knowledge that are required to fulfill an accounting role at the technician level. It is also structured to provide a sound knowledge that is required of a professional accounting executive.

DIA covers a wide range of key accounting and finance areas such as how to interpret financial statements, plan, manage and measure performance using budgets and other financial techniques, make financial decisions and manage all kinds of financial risks.

The DIA is an ACCA (The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) accredited programme. Therefore, graduates of the DIA will be exempted from three ACCA papers (F1, F2, and F3).

Han Chiang University College of Communication is an ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) Partner in Learning. Therefore, graduates of the DIA are exempted from six ICAEW papers, which are Accounting, Assurance, Business and Finance, Law, Management Information, and Principles of Taxation, provided the students have achieved a minimum grade of 50% in each of the required specified subjects indicated.
