SMU ACCOUNTING SOCIETY
The Accounting Society (ASoc) is the student constituent body of the School of Accountancy (SoA).
To establish an integrative culture and promote an environment for holistic development
To foster strong relations with stakeholders.
To provide students with opportunities to hone valuable skillsets through academic and professional development.
To unite students by cultivating a dynamic and vibrant student life.
Integral to this is our duty to assimilate and integrate both local and international students into one ASoc fraternity and bridge the gap between the school and its corporate partners in order to preserve and maintain relations between our alumni and our students.
