Digital & Analytical Skills
Our students are exposed to accounting and auditing software such as ABSS and Caseware.They acquire digital & analytical skills through modules such as Technology for Business, Accounting Analytics and Business Strategy and Ethics, and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) elective.
Our students solve real-world problems through applied industry projects in their third year of study in the Client Project module. Our students apply what they have learnt in their three year studies in SP Accountancy to create solutions to help our industry partners automate mundane and repetitive tasks using RPA.
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.
In the final year, students will also go on a 22-week internship. Depending on their career preference, students will be able to gain experience in either auditing, accounting, or taxation roles.

<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!”
