Singapore Management University will be introducing a new set of data analytics courses to address the rising need in the industry for data analytics skills and information technology skills such as programming.
SMU will offer a second major in accounting data and analytics which, unlike the similar course in the School of Information Systems, will focus on accounting.
A master’s programme focused on accounting data and analytics will be launched too. The first cohort of about 40 students is set to start in August.
Additionally, SMU will be conducting a Certificate in Accounting Data and Analytics programme to let accounting professionals learn more about data analytics, while a customisable Graduate Certificate programme will cater to participants from SMU’s partner organisations.
Both will be taught jointly by the School of Accountancy and School of Information Systems, and can be paid for with SkillsFuture credits.
