Teaching: University-wide Accounting Assessment Exam

We established the Accounting Education Task Force in 2007 in order to improve the quality of accounting instruction and standardize the content of accounting courses. In the same year, we organized the University-wide Accounting Assessment Exam in which thousands of students participated. The exam questions were written by our accounting instructors, and all participating students were evaluated on an equal basis. The top 100 performers on the exam received monetary awards and certificates of recognition. The goal was to incentivize learning through fair competition.

The center is also staffed with accounting tutors, who provide academic support to other students taking accounting courses; the tutors are selected from the top 100 performers on the University-wide Accounting Assessment Exam. We believe the tutors themselves also learn from teaching their fellow students.

Service: Volunteer Training Program

The Volunteer Training Program was set up to cultivate justice and empathy in students and help improve their work ethic.
