BEIJING, Sept. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tarena International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TEDU) ("Tarena" or the "Company"), a leading provider of professional education services in China, today announced that it has established the Tarena Accounting Academy to offer a new course in accounting. The accounting course will be a four-month program consisting of one month of theoretical teaching and three months of practical training and will be mainly targeted towards college students and graduates seeking a profession in accounting. The inaugural class will commence on October 30, 2014 in Beijing.
"We are very excited to establish the Tarena Accounting Academy and to begin offering the new course in accounting. This sets another important milestone for Tarena as we continue to expand our course offerings and overall footprint in other professional verticals. Accounting will become the third non-IT course that we offer in addition to digital art and online sales and marketing, which were both launched last year and have experienced tremendous growth," said Shaoyun Han, founder, CEO and chairman of Tarena. "China continues to see a massive talent shortage in professional fields, and the accounting field is no exception. We believe existing accounting training programs in the industry are mostly geared towards certification test preparation and basic accounting knowledge, while Tarena's accounting course will focus more on job-oriented practical training. We expect that through the four-month intensive program at Tarena, our graduates will be able to master the skills necessary to become competitive in the job market and will have the foundation to launch successful careers in accounting."
