The Master of Accounting allows students to develop accounting skills and the ability to undertake independent research and critical thinking. For students with limited or no prior accounting training, the program offers conversion courses that allow them to meet the education entry requirements of the Australian accounting professional bodies. Students who need to complete additional courses to gain Australian accounting accreditation can also do this as part of the program. Students with prior accounting studies will take more advanced accounting courses, and have the opportunity to undertake more substantial research projects. The program is taught by research active academic staff. Students are exposed to professional and scholarly academic accounting research, enhancing their academic and professional competence. With continuing high global demand for qualified accountants, graduates of the program have a wide range of career opportunities in accounting firms, government departments, banking and finance organisations, corporations and other related accounting fields.
