From music and sports to global organisations and government departments, accounting is vital to any business or enterprise in any industry. In this course, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge you need to become an innovative, creative and ethical thinker who can confidently shape the interactions between business and society.
You’ll learn the practical skills you need to identify business opportunities, analyse problems and implement solutions. You’ll explore how to make decisions related to the acquisition or sale of shares, lending or borrowing money, and providing goods for cash or on credit.
When you graduate, you can apply to become a member of the professional accounting bodies, including Associate membership of CPA Australia, direct entry into the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand CA Programme (CAANZ) and Associate membership of the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA).
You can pursue a range of careers with professional accounting firms, in government, in other private sector firms, and in not-for-profit organisations in roles such as an accountant, auditor, credit manager, financial analyst, financial planner, taxation or management accountant.
Expand your expertise and career prospects by specialising in two areas of study and complete a double major within the same amount of time as a single degree. For example, you could combine the Accounting major with a major in Finance or Banking. Find out more about double majors
