Easing the Long-existing Shortage of Accounting and Banking Professionals in Hong Kong
As the result of economic boom in the mid 1960s, there was a significant need for accounting and banking professionals in Hong Kong and our College subsequently nurtured a significant number of graduates to serve in the field of accounting. Similarly in the early 1970′s, when the banking sector in Hong Kong was thriving, our graduates had many opportunities to develop their careers in both the accounting and the banking disciplines with their solid knowledge.
