Study accounting in the Bachelor of Business degree. Accounting is a dynamic career, delivering multifaceted business analysis, and contributing to the strategic development of business, public sector and not-for-profit organisations.

Accountants must be excellent communicators and strongly analytical, as well as having the required technical skills specific to the vocation. They must relate to people from all walks of life, as they’re frequently called upon to explain concepts and strategies to those outside the financial sphere.
