The Accounting programme at Xiamen University (XMU), which was introduced in 1924, is currently ranked top in China according to China’s Ministry of Education. We were one of the pioneer batches in 1987 to be officially authorised to offer the programme which had been identified as one of the national key disciplines. In the 2001 national key discipline assessment, we were ranked No. 1 in China and rewarded with a full score and were again authorised as a key provider of that programme. XMU was the first university to offer a doctoral degree programme in Accounting in mainland China, and has produced nearly one third of all PhD graduates in Accounting in China.

We are supported by a strong faculty team consisting of high calibre Economists and Accounting professors with 94% of them holding a Ph.D. degree, and 80% of them having previous academic experience in world-famous universities. Since 1982, they have undertaken more than 30 key research projects and published more than 1,500 academic journal articles.

Our programme at Xiamen University Malaysia Campus draws on and benefits from the excellent educational resources of both the School of Management and the School of Economics at XMU China. Our aim is to provide students with a broad and integrated learning experience covering accounting, auditing and financial management so as to develop their analytical and problem-solving skills.
