About

The Professional Accounting (Professional Practice) program from Charles Darwin University provides you with a unique opportunity to work in an organisation and gain valuable professional experience while also gaining an MPA qualification.

Overview

The Professional Accounting (Professional Practice) program from Charles Darwin University will equip you with contemporary knowledge and skills required for professional practice as a certified practicing accountant (CPA) or chartered accountant (CA). The course will provide you the technical and conceptual skills required in a competent accountant, and will develop your ability to explore, analyse and synthesise various accounting and related principles, methods and techniques. You will undertake a piece of research in your capstone unit of study that incorporates accounting theory and contemporary issues.

You can choose to undertake a professional placement, applied research specialisation or to choose electives that support your career objectives. For your professional practice component CDU provides training specific to working effectively in an organisation. You are then provided with a placement opportunity to work in an organisation of approximately 300 hours over a period of eight to ten weeks. If you wish you may also organise your own placement with a suitable organisation. The placement occurs in the last semester of study and provides you with an opportunity to apply the knowledge you have gained during your MPA studies.
