MBA-Accounting and Taxation

In collaboration with GAZT, Alfaisal University’s College of Business stands ready to provide training to alleviate this shortage in the form of MBA programs in Accounting and Taxation.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is currently undergoing significant changes requiring firms to use International Accounting Standards. Saudi Arabia is also considering various income tax proposals and is in the process of setting up taxation agreements with various countries, which will require significant tax planning on the part of corporations. This is in addition to audit and internal control jobs emanating from privatization. Therefore, there is currently a shortage of well-trained accountants in the Kingdom.

Vision Statement

The aim of our MBA Accounting and Taxation track is to educate modern decision makers who are not only technically competent in accounting and taxation but also proficient in making decisions based on practical, analytical, reflective, and critical thinking considerations.

Mission Statement

The AU MBA Accounting and Taxation track will equip graduates with the analytical tools, techniques, and managerial decision-making skills necessary to develop effective accounting strategies.

Objectives

Aligning theory and practice, we commit to setting the highest possible standards by:

  • Developing accounting-specific knowledge that can be applied in different situations depending on facts and circumstances.
  • Fostering strategic, analytical, and critical thinking.
  • Help students acquire a set of methodological and conceptual skills to make and manage sophisticated managerial decisions that are typical for accounting professionals operating in a multi-stakeholder environment.
  • Develop the ability to operate in different virtual accounting realities.
  • Develop effective structures to minimize domestic and international taxes.
