Over the previous two decades, professional accounting bodies, accounting practitioners and educators have outlined and criticized accounting education programs for not being able to meet the demands of the changing business environment. This failure by universities has created a gap known as the competency gap.
The International Accounting Department at SMLS has worked on developing a track that is known as Dual Study (DS) track. The aim of this tracks is to minimize the gap between accounting practice and accounting education, increase transparency, minimize the gap between students, job seekers and practitioners This DS track will help you link the academic part of your studies with a real work environment which will enhance your learning experience, and the understanding of theoretical concepts, as well as, develop innovative skills that will help you have an excellent career prospects after graduating. I wish I had this chance to develop my expertise during my undergraduate.
