KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 — Three local universities broke into the top 100 of the Times Higher Education (THE) BRICS and Emerging Economies University Rankings 2017, signalling further progress since seven such institutions placed in the World University Rankings 2016.

According to the new survey,  Universiti Putra Malaysia was 89th, a 14-place from climb from its previous ranking, in the assessment involving 300 universities from 50 countries from developing countries as well as Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa that from the BRICS.

Other Malaysian universities that made the top 100 are Universiti Teknologi Petronas (91) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (100).

Universiti Sains Malaysia was 114th and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia was 136th while Universiti Utara Malaysia made it within the 201-250 band and Universiti Teknologi MARA,  the 251-300 band.

Bergelar seorang akauntan bertauliah dengan sijil kelayakan profesional Persatuan Akauntan Bertauliah Berkanun (ACCA) sememangnya menjadi impian setiap graduan jurusan perakaunan.

Akan tetapi, tidak semua mampu mencapai impian itu lantaran kerana peperiksaan ACCA bukanlah sesuatu yang mudah dan setiap tahun dianggarkan kurang 40 peratus saja yang lulus di seluruh dunia.
