This program is intended for applicants with an undergraduate degree in a non-accounting discipline who are looking for a career in professional accounting. It can also meet the needs of people who have significant experience working in accounting and who now wish to increase their knowledge, skills, and recognition and employment options by having a high-level qualification in this area.


Let our experienced lecturers help invigorate your career with new skills and knowledge. If you don’t already have a formal accounting qualification and you’re ready to break into this thriving field, our Master of Professional Accounting is the perfect place to start. It is a particularly attractive choice for those seeking practical accreditation on top of their existing tertiary education.

Accounting, finance and economics are about more than just looking at numbers. Our Master of Professional Accounting will provide you with a fresh perspective in using this information to provide expert advice and positively impact the lives of people around the world.

You will develop a comprehensive knowledge in key areas such as financial reporting, taxation, auditing, and budgeting. You’ll also learn the legal ins and outs of associated compliance and performance requirements to ensure statutory and strategic governance.

Our course will provide you with a comprehensive program of study in accounting theory and practice that is recognised by the Certified Practising Accountants (CPA) and Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ), enabling you to pursue a pathway to qualification as a professional accountant.

As the next generation of professional accountants, you’ll be at the forefront of a changing business environment focusing less about profits, and more on caring for the world we live in: from quantifying the financial benefits of sustainable, fair trade business practices; to providing evidence-based solutions to emerging issues and business challenges.
