The accounting department at the faculty business is one of the departments that accompanied the establishment of the Applied Science Private University in 1991. Continuous improvement has always been a strong belief of the accounting department and has been reflected in the improvement of the programs it offers. The department started by offering a bachelor degree in accounting- Arabic language track, but in order to coincide with the universal language of business, it started offering additional bachelor degree in accounting- English language track. The department did not stop at that as it has continued pursuing the development and introduction of academic programs. In the academic year of 2005/2006, a master's degree in accounting was introduced to meet the demands of non-accounting graduates who wish to further develop their careers through learning accounting. This was particularly due to the lack of such programs offered in Jordanian private universities. More recently, another bachelor degree in Artificial Intelligence in Accounting and Auditing was introduced in the academic year of 2021/2022. This program was developed in response to the advancements in technology and the revolution of digital economies.
In addition, the accounting department continually seeks to simulate scientific and professional developments through the continuous development of study plans, whether for the undergraduate or postgraduate levels, taking into account the requirements of the labor market, professional certificates and technological developments, in order to prepare graduates qualified to meet the needs of the market.
