The Division has a two-fold mission to deliver excellence in accounting education, research and engagement with the accounting and business communities:

  • Provide students with an accounting education that equips them with relevant knowledge and skills to be accounting and business professionals and leaders.
  • Create and disseminate knowledge in the theory and practice of accounting.


Our mission drives our strategic priorities, which are to:

  • Deliver courses that equip students with relevant accounting and business knowledge, ethical reasoning, critical thinking, analytical, digital, communication, and teamwork skills that meet the current and evolving needs of the accounting and business communities. 
  • Build awareness of graduates among leading accountancy and premier employers. 
  • Equip doctoral students with the skills to conduct high quality research and teaching, and place them at reputable academic institutions.  
  • Conduct high quality research that advances accounting knowledge, practice or education, and disseminate this via publication in academic and professional outlets and via conferences.  
  • Promote faculty engagement with and service to the academic, accounting and business communities, and society.  

Our Bachelor of Accountancy programme (BAcc) has the longest history in Singapore, and the division is the first in Singapore to be accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) for its accountancy programmes. Our PhD programme in accounting is one of the most well-established outside the US, and our doctoral students are placed at well-established universities such as Erasmus University (EU), University of Hong Kong, University of Massachusetts at Amherst (US), and University of New South Wales (Australia).

The Division's faculty members include professors with PhDs from renowned universities such as Columbia University, University of British Columbia, University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Texas at Austin, University of Pittsburgh and University of Washington. Besides teaching, faculty members engage in high quality research, as evidenced by faculty publications in the top six accounting journals (namely Accounting, Organizations and Society, Contemporary Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting & Economics, Journal of Accounting Research, Review of Accounting Studies, and The Accounting Review). In a 2019 Accounting Research Ranking by Brigham Young University, NTU was ranked in the top 40 globally and third outside North America based on publications in major accounting journals across all years and all areas. Please check out this webpage for further faculty highlights.

To promote the dissemination of research and exchange of ideas, the Division organizes regular research seminars through the Centre for Accounting and Auditing Research. It also co-organises the annual International Symposium on Audit Research with the University of Southern California, Maastricht University, and University of New South Wales, and the annual Tri-University Research Conference with the National University of Singapore and Singapore Management University.

The Division’s faculty members are engaged with and serve on committees of several governmental,  professional and business organisations including, among others, the Accounting Standards Council Singapore, Accountant General Office, Public Transport Council, Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants, Institute of Internal Auditors Singapore and Singapore Institute of Directors.
