Unlike pure accounting degrees, our Bachelor of Accounting and Finance will broaden your career choices.

This course also covers financial decision-making under uncertainty which can be applied to careers in banking, financial consulting, funds management, merchant banking, stockbroking or treasury.

Future employers will know instantly what you are qualified in when you apply with a named degree. And you’ll be eligible for membership with CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and the Institute of Public Accountants.
