Overview

This Master of Professional Accounting at Swinburne University of Technology offers participants the opportunity to specialise in accounting for professional recognition.

Accounting is the language of business, and skills are relevant to many areas of professional interest: marketing, economic forecasting, finance, engineering and many others. A knowledge of accounting and finance can help individuals and business organisations understand how to use money (resources) to the best advantage. Gaining and maintaining wealth are important elements in a market economy.

The course builds on the skills and knowledge acquired in the Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma.
