Overview

Master of Professional Accounting

This professionally accredited program is designed to provide graduates of non-accounting disciplines with a broad-based accounting and business qualification to broaden their career prospects.

The Master of Professional Accounting is designed primarily for students from non-accounting backgrounds who want to develop an understanding of the technical and social dimensions in accounting and business. 

It is a broad-based qualification that combines core accounting studies with authentic learning experiences delivered through industry-informed work-integrating learning subjects and global study experiences.

Through this combination of accounting studies and electives designed to develop valuable professional and cross-cultural skills, RMIT’s program is suited to current workers who have progressed into a role that requires accounting knowledge, as well as people contemplating a career in accounting for the first time.

Industry connections

A key feature of the MPA course is the focus on work-integrated learning (WIL) activities in which students integrate academic learning with practical workplace experiences such as projects with industry and community based organisations. 

The WIL experience can give you an edge when you’re ready to start your career.

Work-connected and industry-relevant options available for this course include:

  • Working in a student team as part of the Fastrack Innovation Program. In this elective subject, you will work with mentors to develop and present a solution to a real problem. This form of fast-prototyping is designed so that external organisations can tap into fresh thinking from RMIT students.
  • A Postgraduate Business Internship elective where you take up a position for one or two days per week for one semester. This position is normally unpaid and is designed to develop your soft skills and increase your overall employability upon graduation.

Note: You will not need to pay any application fee but some of African countries will need to deposit of AU$100 application fee.
