What will I learn?

UniSQ’s Bachelor of Business and Commerce majoring in Accounting is a career-oriented degree designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge for a career as an accountant.

Accounting is a critical component of any company or organization. Accounting as a profession has seen a major shift in recent decades, from a strictly financial focus of economic accountability to a more complex role within business organizations and management. The accounting profession has also expanded to include areas such as information systems, insolvency and forensic investigations.

You also have the option to choose a second major from a range of business and commerce fields to shape the career you want. A double major in accounting and finance is one of our most popular combinations.
