International Accounting

This major aims at cultivating senior accountants and managers with solid theoretical basis and practical skills, potential for sustainable development, professional ethics and a global vision.

International Accounting is a major jointly set up by Nankai University and Certified General Accountant – Canada (CGA) in 2001. With our concerted efforts, this program has won great reputation and wide recognition. In October 2014, CGA's incorporation into Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) turned the program into one of cooperation between the school and CPA Canada. This offers a wider international platform for students majoring in International Accounting as CPA Canada is the only professional accounting group in Canada and a member of Global Accounting Alliance that has signed mutual recognition agreements with a number of countries and regions.

In 2012, International Accounting and the other major for undergraduates in the Accounting Department attained HKICPA Qualification Program certificate, which allows students to directly attend HKCPA qualification test.

English-taught Classes
In order to further the strategy of internationalization and satisfy students' needs to pursue overseas study or to work in multinational enterprises, Nankai Business School set up English-taught classes in 2013 for undergraduates majoring in Business Administration.

Each year, this program recruits 30 sophomores from Nankai Business School and about 10 overseas students. In their following four semesters, they will be taught in English the compulsory courses for Business Administration and several optional courses, with a curriculum focusing on international enterprise management. As for the teachers, the main part is composed of the school's faculty with an experience of overseas study and exchanges, and overseas teachers and foreign executives in Tianjin are also invited for teaching. Through the intensified English learning and international exchanges, this program aims at empowering students to engage in future international activities and creating a richer international atmosphere, thus enhancing the school's internationalization.
