Study Accounting & Finance

Study Accounting and Finance abroad

Finance and accounting courses are usually in the Faculty of Business Administration, or Faculty of Commerce and Accountancy. Both courses are about money and numbers. Some people may think that these two courses are similar, but in reality, they study many different subjects and have different career paths.

Accounting involves analyzing business data from many aspects. This includes preparing, evaluating, recording and storing financial information. Accounting can be divided into many fields such as Auditing, Tax Assessment, Forensic Accounting and Accounting Management, etc.

Finance involves managing current and future business capital. Including managing assets, liabilities and investment planning of the business. You can choose to study specific areas such as Corporate Finance, Financial Evaluation, Behavioral Finance, Capital Markets and Investment Management, etc.

Professional Qualifications in Accounting and Finance

Graduates holding a degree in accounting are typically expected to obtain professional qualifications. In Australia, three main organizations oversee this process: the Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA), the Chartered Accountants (CA), and the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA). Therefore, it’s essential to ensure that the coursework you undertake aligns with the standards recognized by these institutes. Each organization sets distinct criteria, and aspiring professionals must fulfill these requirements to gain membership in the respective professional bodies.

Similarly, in the field of finance, there exists a prominent association dedicated to financial planning professionals known as the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA).
