Joint Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Accountancy with National Taiwan University (NTU)

Background

The City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and NTU launched this joint degree programme in 2012/13. The first batch of joint degree programme students graduated in 2016.

Schedule of study

The joint degree programme has a four-year curriculum. In the first and fourth years, students study at CityU, whereas they take courses at NTU in their second and third years. The curriculum with a sample plan of study for students in the joint degree programme will be provided in due course.

Benefits for students

NTU is widely recognized as the most prestigious university in Taiwan. It provides a top-quality business education, and both enhances the skills and enriches the learning experience of Hong Kong students.

The joint degree programme offers opportunities for full cultural immersion, giving students exposure to a culture different from their own. Whether studying at CityU or NTU, students are required to learn the latest professional rules and practices, and those from Hong Kong benefit from the learning methods used in another Chinese business community.

In response to the emergence of a truly global workforce, students who join the CityU-NTU programme receive vigorous training geared toward development of an international perspective, thereby helping them to compete in today’s ever-changing business world. Graduates are likely to be recognized as skillful, cooperative, open-minded, and flexible, thus giving them an important edge in career development. Further, graduates can pursue career opportunities in either Hong Kong or Taiwan, giving them added flexibility in the job search.

After completing the curriculum requirements of both universities, students will earn two bachelor’s degrees – one from CityU and one from NTU.

Financial arrangement

Students will spend two years in Taiwan. They will need to arrange for their own financing during their stay in Taiwan. They are not required to pay tuition fees to NTU (Partner University) but they will still be required to pay tuition fees to CityU (Home University).  They will be responsible for their own accommodation and living expenses in Taiwan.
