Accounting functions are required in every organisation, ensuring they are sustainable and complying with legal regulations. The Bachelor of Applied Management majoring in accounting will provide you with theoretical principles of management alongside applied assignments, which take your learning into the real world. The focus on accounting will give you theoretical and practical knowledge of accounting, by mastering calculation skills and techniques used in professional accounting practice and learning how to use specialised accounting software like Xero.
Through our excellent relationships with local employers, you get opportunities to apply for internships or work experience days. You also benefit from listening to numerous guest lectures from practising accountants and other professional specialists.
This highly professional qualification can lead graduates into executive practitioner roles, and for accounting majors, into future pathways to becoming CA or CPA qualified. Led by experts from a range of professional backgrounds, the Bachelor of Applied Management (BAM) gives you the knowledge and applied skills you need to start your career at a lower cost than most other management degrees on offer.
