Why study Bachelor of Business (Accounting)?

Accounting is the language of business. Accurate and innovative accounting forms the basis for decision making by the owners and operators of small and large enterprises. The Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree will give you a rigorous education in accounting, while also preparing you to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing business environment.

Our degree offers six core units that introduce you to the key principles of business, including marketing, accounting, management and economics. You will complete a ten unit major in accounting which includes a strong emphasis on developing analytical and communication skills, as well as professional competence, as part of the curriculum. A further eight open electives may be taken with the Faculty of Business and Economics, or other faculty disciplines. It is possible to form a second major from your open electives.

The Department of Accounting and Finance also offers an international study program in accounting, where you have the opportunity to travel to Europe, meet top executives while visiting leading organisations such as the International Accounting Standards Board, Deloitte and the OECD, among others. Workshops and seminars are also held at the Monash University Centre in Prato, Italy.

Study areas

ACCOUNTING

Accounting is the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions. It can be done on a large scale - for international corporations - or for individuals or for any sized business in-between. There are agreed national and international rules and regulations that govern the work of accountants. Accounting allows a company to analyse its financial performance, and report important statistics such as profit and loss to managers and shareholders.

  • Career opportunities

    Business graduates have a huge range of career opportunities, and an accounting major further improves these options. Our graduates work all over the world. They work in finance, accounting, banking and insurance. They work for the government, corporations and themselves. The range of career options depends on the subjects chosen but, given we offer open electives and a specialisation in accounting, graduates will be able to explore several career paths.

    Examples of roles that graduates can pursue include accountant for a large corporation or small business, tax accountant for an individual or business, business analyst in a bank or consulting firm, entrepreneur running their own business, or self-employed book keeper that looks after a variety of clients.

    We help students connect with employers, find jobs and explore career options.
