Computer language, you need to keep update your cert qualification after degree. If you no practice and update, the knowledge will go obsolete.
I don't know if MMU use chim chim language to attraction for the course sign up. Check out the subjects and electives offered and compare with ordinary accountancy degree and also ACCA. get a friend or relative who is familary with account industry and ask what each subject offered is about.
Since TS has not disclose the list of subjects offered, I don't really know what this degree is about. All I know is, IT and programmers hardly work closely with finance people. Unless...Unless...they are into ERP like Oracle or SAP or other obscure ERPs like Microsoft Dynamics. Even then, do you need to know C++ ?? SAP is run by ABAP
In today's world, esp in Msia, financial modelling is very much generated by excel spread sheets. Unless you're into Data management, but that's wholly unrelated to accounting, perhaps big telcos like Maxis or Bank Negara require data modelling for population or prospective client wants. SAP tries to come up with their own budgeting system, but I've seen theirs, doesn't even come close, a lot of limitations in my opinion. Same for Oracle's one.
Corporate Finance is very interesting subject. I am not very familiar with this, but from what I know, big GLCs and corporations in Msia need Corporate Finance dept to do their listing, financing in Bursa, etc. But its a very niche industry, not many job demands out there.
Equity research, this is very interesting. I once wanted to take up this course. But in Msia, we're facing a lot of competition from Artificial Intelligence. Remiesers are slowly getting outphased. People who want to get analysis reports no longer have to dial up respective remiesers and ask them for info, because they can ask question via the phone, and AI will reply. That's all I know lah, I am still not familiar in this industry.
Financial Engineering, Does it have future in Malaysia?
