Qualifications

Overview

The study of Accounting covers a wide range of accounting practices and theories in a number of different contexts, providing a solid foundation for a successful professional career.

Accountants provide important financial and other information for key external groups such as owners, investors, and regulators, as well as assisting managers with insight that allows them to make organisational decisions. Alongside this, accountants verify the accuracy and reliability of financial information (auditing), assess risk, and ensure taxation laws and rules are adhered to.

The subject covers:

  • financial accounting and reporting
  • cost and management accounting
  • auditing and assurance
  • taxation
  • other relevant areas, including sustainability reporting.

The Bachelor of Commerce Accounting programme qualifies students for provisional membership of Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ), CPA Australia, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), or other professional accounting bodies internationally.
