Increasing complexity of global markets and reporting requirements suggests the growing importance of accounting as a dynamic and exciting profession. Study Deakin’s Graduate Diploma of Professional Accounting to become a financial information specialist with the skills and knowledge to inform business decision making within a wide range of organisations.
As a course that provides pathways to professional accounting qualifications for graduates of any discipline, students can complement their overall management knowledge and expertise, or undertake further studies towards membership of CPA Australia or entry into the CA Program.
Develop the skills, technical knowledge and understanding required in accounting and finance, and their application within the broader world of business. Explore important topics in management accounting, including decision making and performance management in organisations, as well as financial accounting and reporting. In addition to core accounting topics, students will also get an introduction to the fundamentals of accounting theory and corporate social responsibility reporting. Plus, they’ll gain an understanding of the regulatory and conceptual frameworks that underpin accounting for corporate entities and of the logic behind existing accounting rules.
Deakin Business School’s Work Integrated Learning program gives students the opportunity to enhance their job prospects with real world experience. In the finance unit students will have the opportunity to engage with business within the workplace and in doing so develop practical and analytical finance skills by participating in real-world projects. As a result they will develop analytical skills for making key financial management decisions, as well as useful skills and knowledge relevant both for running a business or taking roles in managerial positions within large companies.
