Master of Professional Accounting

Course Description

The two-year Master of Professional Accounting is suitable if you have an undergraduate degree without an accounting major. This degree helps you develop your understanding of accounting, economics, management and related areas. It is a suitable course for people interested in changing their career paths or broadening the options in their existing field in, for example, engineering, medicine, science or the arts.

We are partnered with CPA, ICAA and the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative and is a signatory to the United Nations' Principles of Responsible Management Education. These partnerships, education and research commitments ensure we offer a highly regarded, global perspective on business and finance.

Opportunities to study overseas include student exchange programs with our partner universities in over 30 countries, including the University of Innsbruck, Copenhagen Business School, the Berlin School of Economics or France's BEM Management School.

You'll be eligible for membership to professional bodies like CPA Australia, Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA), Institute of Public Accountants (IPA), and London's Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Completion of the Master program includes entry to the Professional Year of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia. This 12-month program offers extended practical skills and training, with networking opportunities and includes an internship. The professional year can be done overseas.
