Bachelor of Commerce with a major in Accounting Macquarie University



Course info



Accounting is often referred to as the language of business, because without it, businesses would not be able to establish how much revenue was being collected from customers, whether suppliers were being paid or how the money in the business was being used. It is a vital tool for organisations to report and plan their direction. Accountants are employed in all areas of commerce, not-for profits and government. They are in demand worldwide, and undertake a range of activities including working with executive management to set direction for an organisation, analysing potential growth opportunities for new products and markets, developing management information systems to facilitate decision making and organisational control, as well as reporting on an organisation's performance.


You will study a set of broad, integrated foundation units to orient you to business, and then complete your major in accounting.

You can undertake this major with a second major in another discipline, or you can take more accounting units depending on your interests.
