Tamkang University’s Department of Accounting has significantly raised its international competitive ability, registering with Taiwan’s Higher Learning Education Association and obtaining international accounting certification from CPA Australia. On January 28th an official ceremony was held at the Danshuei Fishermen's Wharf and President Flora Chia-I Chang met with many honored guests including Representative of the Australian Office in Taipei, Martin Walsh and Chief Operating Officer of CPA Australia, Mr. Jeff Hughes and members of CPA Australia of the ROC Region, Mr Ronald Yam and Anthony Matis who bore witness to TKU’s accounting accreditation.
President Chang stated, “CPA Australia was founded in 1888 and is one of the largest professional accounting organizations in the world, giving it the authorization to give international accounting accreditation. Tamkang University was founded in 1950 and is one of the earliest private institutions of higher learning in Taiwan. We focus on developing a spirit of excellence through an internationally-oriented, future-oriented and information-oriented educational program. Obtaining this international recognition for the Department of Accounting will certainly give students a world view, raising their career value on a global level. They will have an opportunity to learn the latest information and evolve along with the ever changing careers of the future.”
Director of the Department of Accounting, Bao-guang Chang, expressed, “Being able to receive international accounting accreditation from CPA Australia is a major advantage so the alumni had to actively labor to apply for this qualification. It’s been a long and painstaking process of related discussions, preparation and gathering of all kinds of information, but it was definitely worth it. All of the students and teachers that graduated from the accreditation program at the end of 2014 were very pleased.” Bao-guang Chang went on to express the significant advantages that the program would offer to students including being able to seek employment at the many branches of CPA Australia.
