Accounting is an integral part of the management and governance of any enterprise. It acts as a decision-making aid by providing the information necessary for planning, control and performance evaluation. The stakeholders of an entity rely on accounting information to assist in a variety of decisions including the acquisition or sale of shares, lending of funds and the provision of services or goods.
In this course, you will undertake qualitative and quantitative research projects that are team-based, praxis-oriented and closely aligned to industry. Industry partners range from those in the government sector and mining resources industry to accounting firms, IT service firms and real estate companies. You will also have the opportunity to take wider business units in leadership, strategic management and applied business research to further enhance your employability.

This course is accredited by CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ).
