Want to stand out from the crowd? Future employers will know instantly what career you are qualified for when you apply with this named degree.

In addition to graduating with an extensive corporate accounting education, you will understand financial systems well. 

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

ACU knows that practical experience is important for you, so it’s important for it. 

The work integrated learning programs prepare you for the future world of work and build your employability skills, foster an entrepreneurial mindset and hone your communication and project management skills.

Professional experience

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) programs give you essential job-ready skills and experiences as part of all our degrees.

Your professional experience placement will bridge the gap between academic studies and the real world of work by completing 105 hours of work experience in organisations such as: 

Chartered accounting firms, stockbrokers, financial planners, accounts departments of government and private corporations and banks

Community engagement

Through a community engagement placement, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the contributions of social enterprises with 35-70 hours of volunteering with a not-for-profit organisation.
