Educational Philosophy

The UST AMV College of Accountancy (“the college”) believes that the “learners of today are the leaders of tomorrow”. Therefore, teaching and learning is expected to produce competent, compassionate and committed Thomasian accountants.

 

Competence: Developing Mental Agility

Learning best happens when learners construct their own knowledge. Facilitators must therefore equip the learners with essential concepts and theories for problem solving. Furthermore, facilitators (faculty members) should carefully scaffold the problem solving process through the learner’s application of frameworks, theories and concepts. Thomasian accountants are expected to select, apply and reflect on existing theories in analyzing the most pressing accounting issues.

 

Compassion: Inculcating Our Christian Identity

Tracing to its Christian roots, the college believes that all learning is incomplete without its social dimension. Learning in the college, therefore, should encompass the ethical and social dimensions of business, finance and accounting. Furthermore, Thomasian accountants are expected to be reflective of their own decisions, taking into consideration all stakeholders involved.

 

Commitment: Life-long Learning, Life-long Leading

The college fosters a learning environment where learners are expected to be fully dedicated and committed to their own learning. Rather than giving them answers, leading learners into a feasible solution enables them to take full ownership of their own learning. As accounting practice constantly evolves, Thomasian accountants are expected to simultaneously learn and lead in their respective fields.

Teaching and learning in the college develops learners into well-rounded professionals where a healthy balance of competence, compassion and commitment will enable them to lead lives of integrity as professional accountants and nation builders.
