Programme Structure

The Double Degree in Accountancy and Business programme is made up of two main components: Core and Broadening. The Core component bridges theory with real-world practice to equip you with strong competencies in problem-solving and interpersonal skills that will enable you to handle unstructured, complex and strategic challenges in the business arena. The Core component of the Double Degree programme essentially combines the Core components of the single major programmes. You will be given the opportunity to pick a Business Specialisation out of six options, as with the Bachelor of Business programme. But on top of accountancy and business specialisation courses that are common to the single major programmes, you will read a capstone course in strategic management. The Broadening component, or the General Education Requirement (GER), allows you to broaden your perspectives through a course of study that is beyond your major discipline.
