Graduates of degree courses other than accounting may later wish to enhance their management skills or become professional accountants by undertaking a conversion course such as this MACPP


A conversion course enables graduates with non-accounting or partial accounting backgrounds to meet the entry requirements for membership of CPA Australia and Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ). The course focuses on contemporary knowledge and skills required for practise as a public or chartered accountant; effective management; accountability and control; and effective decision-making for financial success.

Studies in the Master of Accounting (Professional Practice) will provide the technical and conceptual skills required to become a competent accountant, and will develop students' abilities to analyse, criticise and synthesise various accounting and related principles, methods and techniques. The skills and knowledge gained from this course will prepare students to be effective managers or financial analysts. Graduates find employment as accountants or financial analysts, and may increase promotional opportunities in their existing occupations.

The course also provides the opportunity for professional practice experience and/or research and training in business communications.
