The 'Accounting and Auditing' PSP has started its operation in the year 2012, it is recognized by the state like every PSP of the Higher Education Institutes and awards the title of Master's Diploma in the subject of 'Accounting and Auditing'. Its purpose is the acquisition by its students of specialized knowledge in the subject of accounting science and auditing.
