Graduate School of Professional Accountancy

Academic Principles Scheme

At the Graduate School of Professional Accountancy, we nurture accounting professionals based on the two pillars of thoroughly pursuing ethical education in accordance with Christian principles, and nurturing internationally-minded persons by also carrying out international education. We not only target persons who aim to obtain certification as certified public accountants or tax accountants, but also those who are seeking to acquire professional knowledge pertaining to accounting. Thus, we have prepared various courses divided into eight fields of study to enable diverse learning. During fiscal 2007, we established the Doctoral Program in Professional Accounting (second part of the doctoral course) in addition to the Master’s Program in Professional Accountancy. We have positioned the establishment of accounting as professional accounting in the Graduate School of Professional Accountancy, and we aim to nurture accounting professionals who are able to teach the subject as research faculty, or who have advanced research abilities.
