Business education in the University of Malaya dates back to 1966 when the Faculty of Economics and Administration first offered business and accounting courses. In line with the increasing demand for accounting and business programmes, the Faculty of Business and Accountancy (FBA) was subsequently established on the 1st of February 1997 to focus on developing these programmes. FBA strives to meet the challenges of preparing students to play a vital role in industry and nation building. FBA seeks to remain at the forefront of business and accounting education and continues to enjoy the reputation as an excellent knowledge-based institution.
Currently, FBA offers five successful programmes. The three programmes offered at the postgraduate level are Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Management (MM) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), while the two undergraduate programmes are Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Accounting (BAcc).
As part of our effort to strengthen our programmes, FBA has collaborations with various business communities and government agencies. In addition, there are several Faculty members who are affiliated to professional bodies such as Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA), Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Malaysian Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (MAICSA) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) as well as advisors to several financial institutions such as the Bank Muamalat, Public Islamic Bank and AIA Public Takaful.
