Program Description

The Accountancy curricular programs provide a foundation of professional knowledge, professional skills, professional values, ethics, and attitudes that enable students to continue to learn and adapt to change throughout their professional lives. The BS Accountancy Program is a 5-year board program that qualifies the graduate to take the CPA Licensure examinations and to render professional services in any of the four sectors of the Accountancy Profession. The BS Accounting Technology Program is a non-board program that addresses the manpower requirements of the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Industry. It is the only acceptable ladder to the BSA program per CHED rules, thus, giving the graduate of the program an opportunity to earn two diplomas.

In the face of the increasing and fast-paced changes in the world of work, it is essential that accounting students develop and maintain an attitude of learning to learn, to maintain their competence later as professional accountants  who have the ability to work with others in a consultative process and in cross-cultural and cross-border setting.  Thus, the Accountancy curricular programs:

1. Adopt the International Education standards issued by the International Federation of  Accountants;

2. Adopt the Core Competency Framework for Entry to the Philippine Accountancy Profession issued by the Board of Accountancy. This framework articulates the knowledge, skills, and professional values that accounting graduates need to successfully face the challenges of today’s changing environment

3. Adopt the requirements of the UNCTAD Global Curriculum

4. Adopt the Liberal Education core curriculum of St. Scholastica’s College  that enables its  Benedictine graduates to become self-fulfilled women of character who are “persons-for-others”, living out ora et labora, with a passion for truth and justice to transform society.

5. Considered the “best practices” from accountancy schools worldwide.
