The accountant is no longer a ‘bean-counter’ nor is accountancy a boring profession any longer. In this digital age, the accountant has evolved to take on roles such as business advisor, consultant and financial analyst. In SP’s Diploma in Accountancy (DAC), besides training you with the relevant technical knowledge, we prepare our students with multi-disciplinary skill sets to be able to provide high value-adding specialised services. Our students will also be technologically savvy to be ready for the digital world.
SP is proud to be the first polytechnic to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) to help enhance the digital capabilities of Small Medium Practices (SMPs), through our Client Project module. The event was graced by Ms Indranee Rajah, Senior Minister of State for Law and Finance.

As part of the DAC curriculum, students will be equipped with relevant IT skills such
as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), programming and data analytics
skills. These skills will be applied
towards the Client Project module, where students help real companies automate
manual processes to improve productivity and harness the power of data to make
better business decisions.

Flexible and Rewarding Experiences
Our students can chart their own pathway at various stages of the programme, choosing from a variety of electives to either deepen or broaden their learning. This serves to equip students with multi-disciplinary skills.
Students can look forward to overseas programmes, community service projects, networking sessions, competitions and a 22-week internship which helps them open doors, gain contacts and develop skills for their accounting career.

"DAC has provided me with numerous opportunities to overcome my
introverted nature and become more confident in public speaking and stepping
out of my comfort zone. It has also trained me with a strong theoretical
foundation coupled with practical applications for me to excel in both the
client project and internship. Other from the academic side of school, I was
also involved in an overseas community service trip to Surabaya, Indonesia
where I taught English to the local children while helping to renovate their
classrooms. This experience reinforced my passion for community service and
spurred me to lead the SP Roteract Club as President. There's never a dull moment here!”
