Program Description

Master of Professional Accounting (12 subjects)

Charles Sturt University

CSU's accredited Master of Professional Accounting is an ideal platform for a dynamic and exciting business career. Designed to build upon previous non-accounting undergraduate studies and work experience, our program complements existing qualifications with a professional accounting qualification designed to meet the academic requirements of the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and CPA Australia.

Why study this course?

As well as meeting the academic requirements of the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and CPA Australia, CSU's Master of Professional Accounting provides practical and relevant skills, opening the way to many vocational choices in areas of financial management, public practice, commerce and industry, government and semi-government organisations and accounting education.

Our program is via online study, or international students may choose on campus study at our Port Macquarie campus or with the CSU Study Centres in Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney. Online students will have subjects taught using a range of blended learning techniques, which may include online study materials, video-captured lectures, online meetings, subject forums and additional study resources. You can also fast-track your degree by completing up to four subjects per session.

The Master of Professional Accounting will prepare you to:

  • undertake and evaluate the conceptual basis of accounting and financial decision-making
  • understand, evaluate and apply the principles of current accounting practice
  • recognise and analyse the impact of the business environment on accounting theory and its application, including the regulatory requirements controlling the accounting process.
