Graduate Certificate in Professional Accounting

University of Technology Sydney

The Graduate Certificate in Professional Accounting is a four-subject introductory course designed to provide a general understanding of accounting and related areas of business study. It provides foundation knowledge in the areas of accounting, finance, economics and law. This course is designed for students who: do not have an undergraduate background in accounting and who wish to further their business knowledge, or have extensive business experience but lack the formal qualifications for direct entry to the master's programs in professional accounting, or want to complete an introductory course in accounting and related fields and want to prove their ability to undertake postgraduate study and attain postgraduate qualifications. As this course articulates into the master's programs in professional accounting, this enables students who do not possess formal undergraduate qualifications, including TAFE diplomats, to acquire the relevant academic qualification for membership of CPA Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA) and the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA). The course comprises a mix of accounting, finance and related subjects which collectively provide a range of essential business skills and knowledge that are necessary for managerial-level employment in today's dynamic business environment. Career options include management-level positions in industry or government, as well as not-for-profit organisations.
