SHU is a new university that has been established with the objective of setting new standards of excellence in Pakistan. Our objective is to create a space in higher education that is in synchrony with the environment of the global marketplace which is in the process of transformation and change.

Our approach in the development of curricula has therefore been to be creative and entrepreneurial towards introducing new ideas aimed towards the personal and intellectual development of our students. This is the reason that our curricula is different from the run-of-the-mill programs being offered by the otjer universities in Pakistan, while at the same time remaining within the bounds of the requirements of the HEC model curricula.

Our curricula not only allow the students the opportunity to experience and develop an understanding of the latest technologies, but also exposes them to applied learning through experiential learning, field visits, and workshops from the very beginning of the program.

SHU’s Program of BS Accounting and Finance includes the body of knowledge of three major accounting certification bodies: ICAP, ACCA, ICMAP and CIMA. The program is augmented with a curriculum that includes subjects related to business studies, social sciences and liberal arts that provide the students with the intellectual grounding necessary for creative thinking and strategy development. The program features interactive lectures, flip classes and challenging academic project which enable students to learn and practice skills in leadership, negotiation, innovation, communication and teamwork – skills vital for today’s business practitioners.


The primary objective of the BS Accounting and Finance program is to provide a sustainable competitive advantage to our graduates compared with those of similar programs at other institutions, as well as the members of the accounting certifications bodies. The objectives include the provision of foundational knowledge necessary for further education, and enhancement of qualifications at the masters and doctoral level.

  • To impart the body of knowledge, including the arrangement of special preparatory tutorial sessions for qualifying the accounting certification exams of ICAP, ACCA and CIMA.
  • To allow flexibility to those students who want to specialize in Finance rather than Accounting to substitute the advanced level accounting courses with those of Finance. For such students, the preparatory tutorial sessions would cover the CFA curriculum.
