Accountancy Institute

Helping Develop More Prepared Accountants

USD's Accountancy Institute was created to support USD's mission to develop more globally minded, responsible leaders.
We regularly research and update the accountancy and taxation curriculum and create advanced learning opportunities to help students gain more relevant accountancy knowledge and experiences, and to support the accountancy community at large.
