About the Program

Accounting and Taxation Practices Program focuses on training students to work in the field of accounting in which, today, the rapid changes require entrants to be fully-equipped in accounting practices. Courses focus on delivering systematic accounting information, allowing students to first learn the basics of accounting which they, then, reinforce by practicing using computer programs. They also learn to analyze financial statements. Students graduating from this program may work in the independent auditing sector, in the accounting departments of business organizations, in public practice accounting or as certified public accountants.

Educational Opportunities

Students can access the required lecture materials from the CIU Library and online course management system. Furthermore, students make use of laboratories and field trips (for practical courses) to practice their theoretical knowledge. In addition to laboratory work, practical exercises together with case studies from real-life situations, course internships and independent studies offered within the courses help students apply their knowledge. On top of all this, seminars, which include talks and debates with industry experts, invited guest speakers for the related courses, summer training during which students work in a company for 30 days and agreements and collaborations with organizations, provide a variety of learning opportunities as well as potential employment opportunities.
