UM is the first university in Malaysia to be accepted into the Internal Auditing Education Partnership (IAEP) programme by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Inc. USA. This programme was developed by IIA for the purpose of promoting and assisting educators who offer an internal audit education programme. The IAEP programme prepares students with the skills and knowledge to help them conduct basic internal audits immediately upon hire and also provides them with a foundation to begin preparing for the CIA® examination. Other benefits offered include free books, research collaboration and assistance and student internships at member organizations. 

UM and CPA (Australia) have entered into an agreement to allow fourth year students to take selected segments of the CPA programme. They will also be exempted from eight foundation courses. This will allow the students to get a head start in their professional accounting career. 

UM in collaboration with ACCA and Sunway TES offers the ACCA qualification via the Structured Internship Programme. Eligible students who are selected are exempted from nine ACCA papers and are allowed to sit for the remaining five papers in the third and final year of their programme. These students will be professionally qualified accountants upon completion of their degree. 

UM in collaboration with ICAEW and Sunway TES also offers the ICAEW qualification via the Structural Internship Programme. Capable students who are selected are exempted from eight ICAEW papers and are allowed to sit for some of the remaining papers in the third and final year of their programme. 

Alternatively, students who wish to pursue a CPA (Malaysia) qualification can apply for the MICPA Students Sponsorship Programme (SSP) during their final year of study.

As a CFA Programme Partner, CPA International recognises three of the programmes under the CFA Programme Partner Scheme; BBA (core in Finance and Banking), BAcc and MBA (core in Finance).
