Overview

If you already have a bachelors degree in accounting (or are otherwise eligible to enrol in the CPA program) then the Master of Advanced Professional Accounting will allow you to become a qualified practicing accountant.

Our graduates consistently rank higher in grade results in the CPA program than non-Macquarie graduates. We have the largest number of high distinctions every year at the annual CPA awards and the highest pass rate (91 per cent) as of July 2013.

In addition to offering the professional segments of CPA Australia, this course has been endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) – meaning that our students will be exempted from 14 CIMA papers, effectively taking them to the final part of the CIMA qualification with only one subject to do.

Our Master of Professional Accounting develops advanced professional skills in:
- strategic management accounting
- financial reporting and disclosure, global strategy and leadership
- ethics and governance

You can also conduct a research project and choose from a range of subjects such as forensic accounting, taxation, information systems in business and more.
