Dean's Message



To quote John F. Kennedy;
“Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource"

In this age of communication and technology, Faculty embraces the significance of websites as an effective medium of communication and an international access to information, to reach a far greater audience in the quickest time possible. Faculty’s website attempts to disseminate information about the Faculty for the benefits of students, potential students, other stakeholders and the community at large.

Faculty of Accountancy, one of the earliest faculties at UiTM, has journeyed through the 50 years or so, and matured into a faculty that has managed to make its presence felt through the academic programmes that we offer, encompassing postgraduate, professional and undergraduate programmes, our research and consultancy activities, and our academic alliances with local and overseas universities as well as professional bodies.

Faculty’s aspiration, Expanding Horizon: Archway to Academic Excellence reflects our tenacity to continuously strive towards being relevant to the accountancy profession in Malaysia and also internationally. Our commitment and efforts to discharge our responsibility towards nation building by producing graduates who are skilful, market-relevant and ethically competent are effected through collaborative efforts and linkages with governmental, professional and industrial organizations.

Therein the future lies challenges and immense opportunities for the Faculty to forge ahead to continue providing quality education in the face of challenges that are rapidly emerging for an educational institution in 21st century.



The first accountancy programme was introduced in 1956 with the establishment of RIDA College in Jalan Othman, Petaling Jaya, inspired by Dato’ Onn Jaffar. As a government agency, it served to alleviate the socio-economic status of rural Bumiputeras by providing training and educational opportunities. The programme introduced was the London Chambers of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), a UK accounting programme, then followed by the Australian Society of Accountants (ASA). 5 years later, RIDA ran the Institute of Costs and Works Accountants (CIMA/ICWA), also a UK recognized accounting programme. The indication of RIDA’s prominent role as a leader of education and scholarship for the people materialised when it became MARA College in 1965 to consolidate the government’s efforts of national development. With the official establishment of the School of Accountancy in 1966, its role was expanded to include developing accountancy programmes not only at semi-professional level but also at professional level in order to meet the national manpower needs for trained accounting personnel.

Later on, the findings of a manpower survey conducted by the government in collaboration with the United Nations highlighted a crucial shortage of professional and semi-professional Bumiputeras in the workforce. As a result, MARA College was given a 300-acre plot of land in Shah Alam as the new campus site and designated with the important task of training Bumiputeras to meet the requirements of an increasingly demanding job market.

On 14 October 1967, the late Tun Abdul Razak laid the foundation stone and MARA College was renamed as Institut Teknologi MARA (ITM). In June 1967, the ITM Act was passed and its administration was placed under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education. Two more new programmes were offered in that year i.e. the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Diploma in Accountancy (DIA). The enormous responsibility of managing and educating such a large and diverse student population called for an amendment in the ITM Act in 1996. The amendment put ITM at par with other institutions of higher learning in the country i.e. it bestowed ITM with the autonomy to function as a full university albeit no change in name. When the ITM Act was amended in 1996, the ADIA programme was renamed as the Bachelor Of Accountancy (Hons). The School of Accountancy became known as the Faculty of Accountancy.
