Diploma in Accounting (DIA) at KYS Business School is the ultimate choice for aspiring students who seek to become professional accountants within a shorter time frame. The programme is designed for a students to take a shorter path to fulfilling their dreams without the financial and time constraints of a full degree. Courses covered in KYSB’s DIA are designed according to the Professional Stage Examination (PSE) by the Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA). With a duration of only two and a half years, DIA students are able to pursue their passion of becoming a professional accountant earlier compared to a Degree student.
Upon achieving a DIA at KYSB, students are encouraged to continue at KYSB for four professional modules in accordance with MICPA’s PSE, which will only take one year to complete. The Professional Stage is designed as a fast-track route for accredited DIA holders to obtain a professional qualification.
Completion of the Professional Stage will lead into the Advanced Stage or MICPA-CAANZ Programme, and these two stages will require a minimum duration of 3 years to complete. Following the completion of the programme in conjunction with the necessary work experience requirement, students will gain membership to both MICPA and Chartered Accountatns Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ), and the titles of Certified Public Accountant, Malaysia, or CPA (M) and Chartered Accountant, Australia & New Zealand, or CA(ANZ)
