The Hong Kong Competition Commission has taken its second case to the Competition Tribunal, seeking penalties for alleged anti-competitive conduct. It has signaled that more cases will follow soon.

So it's never been more important for Hong Kong businesses to understand competition law, and take steps to minimise the risks. The actions of a single employee can cost a company millions of dollars in penalties and damages claims, as well as disqualification of directors and managers!

同學可報讀會計及商業法深造文憑,以裝備自己及提升有關會計及法律知識。

The Programme aims to equip students with essential accounting knowledge, educate students on laws, regulations governing business operations & commercial transactions.

Video recording service of each lecture is available for the module "Financial Reporting" and "Basic Accounting".

Competencies in both accounting and law form an important set of hard skills that any professional, entrepreneur and business manager should master, irrespective of their specific industries. While there are postgraduate level programmes in accounting or law, law and accounting are often treated as belonging to different silos of needs.

Knowledge of laws, especially those governing business operations and commercial transactions, is essential for business managers and administrators. Acquiring knowledge in commercial law and receiving formal training in accounting are of equal importance to those who would like to advance to senior management or become entrepreneurs. In light of this, this Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting and Commercial Law (PgDip(ACL)) is developed to cater for these needs.
