MASTER OF PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTING - CRICOS CODE – 055563K

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES & OVERVIEW

The primary objective of this program is to enable students whose first degree is in a non-accounting field to undertake a professional career in accounting (and/or related fields, such as finance). In particular, it is envisaged that accreditation will be sought to allow graduates of the MPA and the Master of Commerce (Professional Accounting) to obtain membership of a recognised professional accounting association. Consistent with this, the primary focus of these courses is to enable students to obtain proficiency in the ‘core curriculum in accounting and business areas’ and ‘generic skills’ specified in the accreditation guidelines issued by CPA Australia.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent from a recognised university. In exceptional circumstances applicants who do not have a bachelor’s degree may be admitted on the basis of relevant work experience, non-degree qualifications (including professional qualifications), and demonstrated capacity to undertake the course, as assessed by the Courses Coordinator. Applicants without a bachelor’s degree would normally be admitted initially to the Graduate Certificate in Commerce.

  • Applicants would be presumed to have proficiency in using a computer, including common office automation software such as spreadsheets and word-processing programs. Where such proficiency is not held, applicants would be required to undertake a preparatory program which would be additional to the MPA course requirements.

  • IE TS: Overall band score of 6.0, with no individual sub-score below 5.5.

PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION
