The Accounting program at the Macquarie University will enable you to obtain a university qualification that satisfies the accreditation requirements to commence the professional papers offered by CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).  


Qualified professional accountants are critical to the success of all businesses and organisations. With specialised knowledge, professional accountants can apply their skills broadly in the increasingly dynamic and global accounting environment. 

Key features 

  • You’ll gain essential financial and management accounting knowledge, as well as a range of business-related skills in assurance and audit, commercial law, economics, financial management and information systems. 
  • Many of your teachers have first-hand experience with the CPA and CA programs. A number of the teaching staff also act as consultants to CA ANZ and CPA Australia. 
  • You’ll have opportunities to engage with the business community, many of whom contribute to the degree’s learning materials. 
  • You’ll have opportunities to develop your research skills and practice, enabling you to interpret and appraise recent developments in accounting, as well as to make professional judgements and solve complex accounting problems. 
  • You’ll have the opportunity to attend and participate in seminars and workshops in which you’ll apply your advanced and integrated understanding of the core disciplines of accounting to practical and theoretical scenarios. 
  • You’ll develop higher-level skills that will prepare you to lead people, work collaboratively, adapt to changing circumstances, innovate, communicate clearly and effectively, and manage diversity. 
  • The Accounting program at the Macquarie University is available on campus during the day or evening, and some units are available online, which means you can continue to work full-time while studying. 
  • If you hold a bachelor degree in any field (other than a bachelor with an accounting major), you’ll find this degree ideal if you wish to earn a widely recognised and reputable postgraduate qualification in accounting. 
  • This degree will equip you with the necessary professional accounting skills for the job market and career progression in business, and is endorsed by the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). 


This course is accredited by CPA Australia (CPAA), Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).
