At the Faculty, students are immersed in a professional academic environment. The curriculum is designed based on regulations of the Ministry of Education and Training, Vietnam National University, Hanoi and social demand, referring to many prestigious accounting training institutions such as University of Sydney, Monash University (Australia), Massey University (New Zealand) etc.

What students say about FAA?

“Studying at the FAA is my unforgettable time. Classes give us updated knowledge, opportunities to enhance soft skills with presentations, discussion and practices. The annual internship at enterprises and audit firms give us chance to practice our knowledge and skills. Moreover, students are encouraged to develop personal interest or take part in extracurricular activities in clubs, youth union or student union. These activities help us discover ourselves, master knowledge and skills as well as understand each other.”
