Bachelor of Accounting

General

Program Description

This course offers more than just an accounting qualification.

Accredited by CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (C.A.A.N.Z.) and international bodies, it develops your business skills along with an awareness of ethics, human rights, sustainability and public policy issues.

In the first year you'll be introduced to business disciplines including accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, and statistics, and start your in-depth studies of contemporary issues in accounting. To ensure our course content and curriculum are up-to-date, we work closely with global corporations like Deloitte and PwC.

In addition to completing an eight-subject major in accounting, you can also complete a second major from areas within the Business School, two minors, or up to eight elective subjects. For example, you might choose to complete a second major in financial planning or management or minor in forensic accounting or corporate finance.

Your elective choices can include study tours, internships, and languages, and you can choose to complete these electives overseas at one of our partner universities. We have connections with top business schools including the University of Innsbruck and the Berlin School of Economics.
