Accounting is a critical component of any company or organisation. 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 organisations and management. The accounting profession has also expanded to include areas such as information systems, insolvency and forensic investigations.
Accounting major graduates will meet the educational entrance requirements of CPA Australia and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ).

The Accounting major is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Association of International Accountants.
Successful completion of the Accounting major can qualify students for exemptions from the Fundamental level (9 papers) of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) exams.
