Students will be introduced to related disciplines, including business law, taxation, information systems, economics and quantitative methods. The program is offered via flexible delivery, allowing students to study at the Mt Helen Campus, Gippsland Campus (Churchill), or via online delivery. This program also offers two exit points, the Graduate Certificate of Professional Accounting (8 courses) and the Graduate Diploma of Professional Accounting (12 courses).
