The Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) offered by the University of Wollongong first introduces the fundamental principles of accounting, economics and aspects of the economic system and then proceeds to the study of specific knowledge areas which are vital for accounting professionals.
You will develop knowledge and skills to apply accounting principles in the preparation and interpretation of financial statements and, to enable you to research current accounting issues. You will also have an understanding of the differences between accounting principles and taxation law and the tax implications of business activities.
