Accounting Programmes of Methodist Pilley Institute
Methodist Pilley Institute (MPI) was established in 1991 to serve the local community with its mission to produce ethical and socially responsible citizens and leaders by providing quality, wholesome and affordable education. Over the years the institute has grown from its humble beginnings to become a trusted institution of higher education in the areas of accounting, taxation, finance, business management, computing, early childhood education, social work and English.
Today MPI is branded especially for its accounting programmes, not only in Sibu but throughout Sarawak. MPI’s accounting department has come a long way offering Diploma in Accounting back in 1990s to now offering 6 accounting and finance courses including degree and professional qualifications namely:

• B.Sc. (Hons) Finance & Investment (in collaboration with UCSI University since 2018)
• CAT (registered tuition provider since 2005)
• ACCA (registered tuition provider since 2005)
We have 14 full-time dedicated and experienced lecturers in accounting department, they come from different backgrounds, with many of whom have solid corporate experience that helps students to recognize the actual challenges they may face, and they are able to give real-life examples which will benefit students in their examinations. Not only that, the lecturers are there to build connection between corporate and students when it comes to internship or placements.
In 2010, ACCA has awarded the Gold Approved Learning Partner status to MPI, this means MPI has met ACCA’s widely recognised and highly regarded global best practice benchmarks. MPI is also the only CBE centre in Sibu since 2006. CBE is computer based examination which was developed by ACCA as part of its overall e-business strategy, providing learning and assessment online and continuing to offer student access, opportunity and flexibility through the ACCA brand.
For 29 years we have nurtured many outstanding students who have excelled in both of their studies and professional career. Among our brilliant alumni is, Mr Dominic Hu Khie Yeen, who completed his CAT and ACCA qualifications, and also a B.Sc. (Hons) Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University (UK), all in just 3 ½ years at MPI. For many years Dominic worked in various sectors including multinational corporation and listed companies in Malaysia with the qualifications earned at MPI under his belt before he decided to come back to MPI to serve as a lecturer. In year 2017, he obtained his M.Sc. in Professional Accountancy from University of London and he’s now our accounting degree programme leader who is pursuing PhD qualification. With the solid education foundation built over the years in MPI and ACCA, he has begun to publish academic research paper in peer reviewed international research journal recently.
The establishment of MPI is to remember Mr and Mrs John Pilley who had, between 1949 and 1960, worked selflessly to provide good and affordable education to the poor and needy children in Sarawak. Our institute, named after their name, now continues the mission of the Pilleys by ensuring that youth of diverse racial, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds are adequately prepared for the challenging job market through our accredited and recognised programmes.

2010年，英国的特许公认会计师公会（ACCA）授予毕理学院 “金牌级认可的学习合作伙伴” 资格，这意味着毕理学院已达到ACCA公认的，备受推崇的全球最佳会计实践基准。自2006年以来，毕理学院还是诗巫唯一的计算机考试（Computer-based Examination, 简称CBE）中心。CBE是由ACCA作为其整体电子商务策略的一个重要部分，可在线提供学习、进度评估和给学生提供更多就业机会。
从过去到现在29年来，我们培养了许多在学业和职业生涯上均卓著的优秀学生。在毕理学院杰出的校友中，许起荣先生，在毕理学院的短短3年半中，获得了CAT和ACCA的证书资格，并考获了英国牛津布鲁克斯大学（荣誉）理学学士学位。 在他担任毕理学院会计系讲师之前，许起荣曾在多个领域就业，包括跨国公司和马来西亚的上市公司。 在2017年，他获得了英国伦敦大学的专业会计专业的理学硕士学位。 目前是毕理学院会计学位课程负责人，并且再攻读博士学位。 凭借多年来在毕理学院和ACCA课程中建立的扎实的教育基础，他近期开始在同行评审的国际研究期刊上发表学术研究论文。
毕理学院的成立是为了纪念约翰·毕理夫妇（Mr & Mrs John Pilley），他们在1949年至1960年之间一直无私地为砂拉越的贫困儿童提供良好且负担得起的教育，毕理学院以他们的名字命名。 通过教育部认可的专业课程，为不同种族，宗教和社会经济背景的青少年进入职场做装备，从而继续了毕理夫妇的教育使命。
